Re: Chirpractic ankle adjustment?

So I saw a chiro for the first time today. It was interesting. Popped a couple of places in the spine and neck, worked on my ankles a bit and did some tugging and knocking on them. Nothing felt like a real change (is it supposed to?). Worked on my IT bands with one of those massage devices they have, which showed me some spots to focus on in my foam rolling. He also worked on my almost-but-not-quite-gone medial epigondilitis in my right elbow. No misalignment detected in the wrist or elbow, though. I will probably go a few times to see if it helps over time.

He recommended one of those wobble boards, so I suppose I need to go find one of those. So far, I have a solid hour of crap per day I should theoretically be doing to fix my weak areas. No way to keep up with all of it...

Not necessarily

Though, the mobs/manips should allow you to be more pain free and/or gain range of motion directly after doing them.

If they don't then they're not helping the issue...

Sometimes it can take a few treatments, especially if the joint has been restricted for a while.

They felt good afterwards, and I am headed back for round 2 in about 10 minutes. We shall see...

We shall see!

Usually there's some improvement in the initial session though, even if it's a long standing issue just because of the increase in mobility + mechnoreceptor stimulation for relaxation

There was some improvement. His assessment seems to be that my larger lower body problems have to do with my right hip and my IT bands, and in my upper body it's my shoulders. He's focused on those.
