    Do you believe in chiropractic methods?

    some think it is quack medicine. If you'd had this treatment, has it helped you or harmed you?

    It has helped me.  I had a problem with my neck that was ongoing for a long time, and it was causing muscle spasms and lots of headaches.  Chiropractic helped me a lot.  I think for joint problems it can be very helpful.  I'm not sure about the other claims it makes for other kinds of problems, as I haven't experienced this.

    I do believe in chiropractic methods. They have worked for my dog and my mother very well. My dog couldn't move his back legs and couldn't walk as a result. The vet said to put him down. But we took him to the chiropractor four times and he continues to walk, run, jog, etc. My mother has neck problems. A touch or two from the chiropractor and she feels fine once again.

    I totally believe in good chiropractic methods!!! (Having said that, it all depends on the Chiropractor you get.)

    I've had one that damaged me and have had three others that were terrific. Chiropractic methods are not all the same so you need to find the methods that work best for you.

    Here is one small example of how they have helped me. I travel frequently by plane and started having terrible pains in my head every time the plane began its descent. I was like having a thousand pins in my eye and forehead. It became so severe that I became terrified with flying. I mentioned it to my Chiropractor who checked and adjusted the bone structure of my face and skull along with relieving the pressure behind my eyeballs. I have never had the terrible needle sensation again. I go to this Chiropractor every time before I fly.

    That was just one small example. I could write a book on how they have changed my life for the better.

    All that being said, let me also say, I grew up in a family that considered Chiropractors to be all quacks (I still think some are). I first went to a Chiropractor when I was in my twenties because I was running out of options.

    Unfortunately, it is possible to call oneself a "chiropractor" with very little qualification. The one I went to had an actual MD in chiropractic and was excellent. The ones who will injure you are likely the ones who took a short course and hung out a shingle.

    To answer your question, yes, I absolutely believe in it. It has helped both me and my fiancee greatly.

      To be legally called a chiropractor in any state, one must obtain a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree which includes a minimum of over 4,000 class room hours. Anyone else is not a chiropractor. You can't become a chiropractor over a weekend seminar.

    Yes, I do believe in chiropractic methods and it has helped me many times. I know a lot of people think they're quacks, and some of them are, but if you get a good chiropractor, it's definitely worth the money.

    seeing a chiropractor just keep in mind what I said about different treatment approaches. However, I chose to become a physical therapist because we emphasize patient self management.

    I absolutely believe in chiropractics. The therapy has helped me a lot in enhancing my body' functions. It also helps in managing most types of body pains by ]d strengthening your neuro-muscular system.

    My chiropractor at Corrective Chiropractic & Wellness clinic have prescribed some exercises to improve my body posture.

    If I had answered this question 3 years ago, i would have said no. Today, I am enrolled in chiropractic school. I absolutely believe in the science and bio-mechanics behind chiropractic and can personally attest to how it works. I have had great success with it, even with extremity adjusting and I have also personally witnessed it helping many other people. I don't believe it a fix all approach to healthcare, but I do believe it can help with a lot of ailments. I have always thought that taking a pill for everything to be a false sense of health and that its best to try to fix the problem rather then mask the symptom. To me it makes sense to try the least invasive procedure 1st (like chiropractic) before moving on to more invasive treatments like taking pills that have a greater risk of adverse side effects.
