    Don't waste your time or money, just go to a real orthopedic sports doctor.

    good most of the time, but they will try anything to get you to come back as often as possible. as long as you don't listen to them and only go when you need it, they're great

    I go on a weekly basis. I will say that I would not be at the level I am if it weren't for chiropractors!! They have helped me tremendously with prehab and rehab.

    massage therapist who practices ART > *

    The difference is no secret. The knots are gone, range of motion is back, zero pain, helped me with other problems I didn't know I had, showed me what to do for prevention, actually fixed the problem rather than mask it, and it was affordable.

    I'm waiting for my health insurance here at work to kick in. They cover the first 15 visits I think.

    some bitches are fucking crazy. If it feels painful as hell, don't worry, it could be really really beneficial for you. But it could also just be fucking you up. get a doctor you trust...

    My girlfriend went to a chiro and he actually ended up putting a kink into her neck (guy has been practicing for ~15 years too)...it took me 45 minutes to massage it out. Needless to say, she wont be going to the chiro anymore.

    $30 CAD for me. Personally I think it rocks. I can walk in, not tell him what hurts, he examines my back, and finds the exact spots that hurt. Great stuff. I visit bout once a month.
