    OJib prayers for you wife.

    The whole key to Chiros is finding a really good one. Not one that just wants to start cracking on you from every direction in 10 min and sending you out with a another appt and a $1000 bill. Ya gotta find one that is good and listens to what your problem is and explains to you whats going on.

    I took my dad in to care for him for over a year after a series of small strokes and he was in the mid point of alzheimers. Anyhow one night putting him to bed I stood him out of his wheelchair and went to pivot him left and at just the wrong point he resisted 180 degrees opposite of the direction of the pivot. It popped my pelvic out of joint at top back right side of my butt cheek. I have a good friend who is a great chiro. He worked on me three times a week for several weeks. He also gave me exercises to do, a series of them. He told me if I get up and stretch in the morning, and maintain the exercises I stand a better chance of staying good. But since we moved to the farm and all the lifting and working I've gotten wacked in the back again. But I am gonna find another good one close to me that can get me lined up again and then I'll get back on the exercises and be good again. Key is find a good chiro and the exercises that will help the healing and doing them. Stretching is requirement too.

    Prayers sent. Back pain is no fun. I think I had posted on here before, I used to go to a chiropractor pretty often. I’m a pretty good sized fella so they’d really have to work to pop and crack me. Anyway, had a wreck that totaled my truck a few years back and did PT for 2 months. They basically gave me some simple stretches to do 2-3 times per week upon my release, and I swear as long as I do them routinely, I haven’t even thought about the chiropractor. Now, sadly, I don’t know how this will go when I’m older and not even in good enough shape to do the stretches, but right now, it works...and way cheaper than the chiropractor. My recommendation is PT and do the routine they recommend when they release you. My wife has a cousin who is a chiropractor and while he’s good and believes in his work, he’ll confess that he wants his patients to keep on coming. He says, “Our job is routine maintenance. The objective is not to make a patient feel better, so we can release them, it’s make them feel better so they keep coming back.”

    Chiropractor's, Doctors, Osteopathy, they all can heal, if you find the right one. ever find the wrong dentist? a painful lesson.
    I got 28 injection's of novicane or whatever it was called, at one dentist. Deep cleaning, lower right quadrant. He couldnt find the right nerve, so he injected along side or the teeth. front teeth injections were worst. i didnt go back. i'd drive 2 hrs., ta go to a good dentist.
