    I LOVE my chiropractor. Nothing like a good back cracking! I wish I could afford all that good stuff. I'd get a massage daily if I could.

    JLuvs, those are GREAT quilts. You are lucky your mom is so talented. And what great keepsakes for you to have. In more ways than one. Something your mom made and something to remember all the good times with.

    I'm lucky, my medical insurance covers all my chiropractor visits, even therapeutic massage. I'm going to see my DC today as a matter of fact. He's going to start working on my wrist that was injured in the car accident last year. He thinks he can help with the constant stiffness and pain. Love it!

    The idea of going to a chiropractor kind of freaks me out!

    Me too, actually. I've heard of people bringing their month old babies there. I'm not comfortable with it, but I did hear they treat a lot of problems, including the reflux problem my niece is having.

    I have benefitted greatly from chiropractic treatment. I have had severe back pain for years and get to the point where I can barely move. A visit to the chiropractor and I can walk out of his office unaided when I had to have help or a cane to get in the door.

    I can feel immediate relief from pain as soon as he adjusts me. No meds needed. I prefer not to have to take medication unless its unavoidable and I do not like or want to take pain medication. And the chiropractor has helped me more than going to an orthopedic dr. that specializes in backs. He just wanted to put me on muscle relaxers and pain pills. Much prefer to have an adjustment than to be in a fog of the muscle relaxers and pain medications.

    Every chiropractor is different. Some I wouldn't let touch me with a ten foot pole! My chiropractor is a pain specialist, and is very gentle. With his help I was able to avoid back surgery, and have been pain free from a disk hernia for close to four years now. He's awesome!

    You are right to be careful though, depending on the DC, sometimes they can do more harm then good.

    ETA:
    I forgot. He also treats my husbands headaches. He does one little adjustment, and the pain is gone instantly! So cool.

    I can't wait to see what he does with my wrist.

    The chiropractor I used to see kinda specializes in pregnant women and their new born babies. He loves children and helps little ones all the time because they constantly fall or get out of sync from something. His wife and children are his best advertising. 100% drug free and safe!

    After the first six months with fibromyalgia, I was so stiff, I couldn't turn my neck or get out of bed unaided..or really much of anything else.....I went to my chiropractor and with a month's therapy I was a different person...He used ultra sound which loosens the muscles..then he does the manipulations.

    It was like a miracle!! I still have flair ups but never, never to the degree I was suffering before I went to him.

    My chiropractor is also, mmmm cant' quite remember, but he's a sports injury specialist too.

    Well, I thought I would come in this morning and give you all an update on my wrist.

    My Chiropractor did some deep tissue massage on the wrist, and adjusted it, then ultrasound treatment, and electrotherapy.

    Oh man. I haven't felt this good in months. Not only does my wrist not hurt when I move it, but my husband and I think that I have a little bit more range of motion.

    I'm so excited!
