    And it's not my fault.

    She has a back issue it's actually in her lower back and hips. You can tell if you are behind her one hip looks crooked. It looks like scoliosis.
    She has a standing chiro appointment once a month that gets her fixed up , after that she goes to a lady and gets a massage and she's good for another 30 days.

    With everything being shut down , thank you Coronavirus she can't go and it's killing her. It's looking like our only hope now is a doc appt if we can get one and possibly some muscle relaxers.

    Needless to say I'm not happy.
    How is a doc able to stay open but a chiro isnt?

    Prayers for her and for you. I have lower back pain as well. Put me on disability. I have good days and bad. Hate to hear she is down. Does she have a pain dr? Maybe some injections?

    Are we sure chiropractors really help? It definitely makes me happy to pop my knuckles....but I’m not sure that really does anything productive.

    good luck to your wife. Back pain is brutal. My wife had some issues and began a Pilates and yoga program. She’s all food now. Have your wife visit a spine specialist and see what they say

    Absolutely it helps bro. If there is no structural damage, chiropractors are the way to go. It's PT on steroids, and works wonders.....

    The placebo effect is a real thing. I get that.

    Seriously? I'm a walking testament to chiropractic healing.... I can tell you, it isn't a placebo....

    That’s awesome BG and I’m glad you found relief. Just saying there is no science to back up chiropractor claims or practices.

    Well, do you believe in physical therapy? Is there science to back up those claims and practices?

    LOL. My first experience was for a chronic stiff neck. I had 10% left/right movement. Had been that way for several weeks. Miserable. I was scared to death. He popped my neck side to side, then pulled it like pulling your finger. Popped like popcorn several times. Instant relief. Then the electro therapy. Saw him twice a week for 6 weeks, and my necks been fine. I had sat in front of a computer for 20 years, with the screen lower than my shoulders. Looking down.... Since then, I keep my monitor a little above eye level. No more issues. Like I said, if there are no structural issues, chiropractic treatments can help. It's PT on steroids. If there are structural issues, then it's a bandaid, nothing more.

    No it's not Ed. That's where you are 100% wrong. Much of chiropractic services is PT. Particularly the electro therapy. I'm not talking about cracking bones. I'm talking about the deep tissue treatments they do. If you haven't been, they you have no clue what you're talking about.

    I’ve been to a chiropractor several times for back pain. I learned that I have compression fractures from football or falling off a roof. She was a great person. I loved visiting her. It felt great! I also don’t think she fixed my problem.
