    I hate chiropractors. After 5 - 6 treatments of A.R.T -- I feel ripped off. He didn't even understand what I was saying, and he just treated me the way he thought was correct. I don't want to lose hope in A.R.T because my shoulder is just killing me. Anyone else have a bad experience with A.R.T? For now, i'm blaming the lack of skillz of my chiropractor...

    I have nothing but good things to say about my A.R.T treatments. I have been suffering from Plantar Fasciitis for just over 3 years now, and have tried everything aside from surgery (Physio, Night Splints, Orthotics, etc) and the only thing I feel that has truley benefited me has been constant stretching and ART. It also helps to have the leading practioner in the Country work on you.

    If you found the doctor(?) that was working on you to not listen or benefitting you at all that should of been the first sign to swtich to another clinic.

    Dont give up on it yet, if at all possible swtich to another clinic, and before the doctor (?) even starts tell him what exactly it is you want, what hurts, and what the other guy obviously didnt help you with.

    My doctor wrote a book thats extremely helpful for after-treatment care.

    My chiropractor made me hurt worse and gave me headaches everytime I worked out for months.

    A Myotherapist treats the "hot spots" or muscles that pull you out of alignment. Combination therapy between the two is excellent.

    Isn't Diablo like $150/month or something crazy anyway? There should be some perks in there.
