    When taking progress pics (1st ever, so really just setting a benchmark) I noticed that i seem to be all sorts of out of alignment. One shoulder rides higher than the other, hips slightly shifted to my left, etc...

    Does anyone here go to a chiropractor? Do you guys think it would help for symmetry? I mean, this couldn't hurt, amirite?

    Technically paralysis wouldn't hurt :noes:

    But really, hadn't taken that into consideration.

    I think a chiropractor posts in here semi frequently so he'll so go prochiro. Personally I suggest exercises to increase symmetry. They are tedious and suck but I've been trying to focus on building musculature in my upper left back and scapula and it really seems to be helping after a few months.

    Just gotta figure out what exercises you need to do. Talk to me in 4 years and I'll have a better idea what direction to steer you.

    I think rolfing is the much safer option.... doesn't require any costly therapists or practitioners... maybe tickets to a comedy show so you can rolf your ass off then you're good.

    Chiro is good if you have the money, but you need to put the work in to stabalize the joints after adjustments, or they slip right back out...
