One of the most sought after forms of alternative healing is chiropractic care. Amongst cancer survivors who seek chiropractic therapy, 84% do so to alleviate pain, improve mood and sleeping habits, as well as to relieve stress.
The purpose of chiropractic treatment is not only to relieve pain, but to improve quality of life by alleviating systemic problems relating to muscles and the central nervous system. Given the researched benefits of chiropractic care, it is likely that you or someone you know could benefit from this alternative therapy.
Let’s take a look at the top 10 reasons you might benefit from chiropractic care.
1. Elevates Sports Performance
Both athletes and non-athletes can benefit from sports-specific chiropractors. These specialized doctors have a focus on manipulating joints, soft tissue, and the spine to improve recovery time and prevent injury of strains, sprains, and even concussions.
Chiropractors can teach you how to focus on the proper techniques for the sport you play. This will include stretching techniques which can reduce the occurrence of an injury, the severity of an injury, and a recommended rehabilitation time frame for healing.
2. Reduces Headaches
Do you have frequent headaches? Do you find that headaches dramatically impact your health and ability to maintain the lifestyle you want? Neck pressure and movement can exacerbate the severity of headaches caused by abnormal head positioning such as hunching over at a computer during the work day.
Chiropractic therapy can remove obstructing structures causing the tightness in the back and strain on the spine. Receiving chiropractic care is an effective way to limit the occurrence of headaches, and lessen the intensity when they do occur.
3. Stimulates the Immune System
The immune system interacts directly with the nervous system affecting overall health. Again, obstructions with the signaling pathways between the nervous and the immune system impact the ability to heal adequately.
Without the use of surgery or medication, chiropractic care removes these barriers so that the body can properly repair itself at a genetic level and stimulate the immune system fully.
4. Wellness and Prevention
Chiropractic procedures manipulate the spine and entail a variety of procedures which treat underlying health problems. For instance, decompression exercises improve sleeping habits and have no known side effects.
Gastrointestinal Issues: Gut complaints are some of the most commonly reported problems which affect all ages in today’s society and are due to systemic concerns. Colic, persistent constipation, heartburn, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can be detected in infants to older adults and have likely affected you some time in your life. Irritable bowel syndrome is the most widespread condition worldwide.
Cancer: Education teaches all, especially cancer patients, how to improve wellness and prevent future occurrences or a secondary cancer. Chiropractic therapy focuses on some of the first common symptoms of cancer: musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction as well as chronic headaches.
In fact, 70% of advanced cancer patients, including those with cancer of the lungs, thyroid, breasts, kidney, and prostate have metastasized cancer in the skeletal system. Chiropractic treatment has also been shown to improve healing in cancer patients, as opposed to medication and other conventional therapies.
5. Alleviates Allergies and Asthma
Both chiropractors and parents of children suffering from allergies such as asthma support the positive results of chiropractic treatment.
Studies also support that chiropractic therapy benefits patients by decreasing the amount of medication needed. They suffer fewer asthma attacks and report an overall lessening of symptoms leading to an improved quality of life.
Throughout pregnancy, many women experience chronic back pain due to the changing weight distribution on the pelvis and joints. Pain and muscle spasms may increase the likelihood that a pregnant mother will struggle during labor and delivery.
Chiropractic treatment focuses on balancing the muscles, pelvis, and ligaments during pregnancy to relieve pressure on the uterus. This treatment increases the likelihood that the child will be born via a preferable position while lowering the risk of being born through cesarean section.
Seventy-two percent of women report finding relief from pain during pregnancy and labor resulting from chiropractic care. Part of this success may due to the fact that women are encouraged and shown how to follow a proper exercise routine for pregnancy. This reduces weight gain, improves hormones, and allows for a more comfortable rest during sleep.
7. Mitigates Chronic Pain
Low back pain affects more than 10% of the population globally, and is the most common occupational injury in the United States and Canada. North America ranks low back pain sixth amongst contributing factors for increased medical cost. Compared to conventional health management practices, chiropractic care is low cost and improves the healing of the entire body.
Doctors of chiropractic also focus on education, which is critical to reducing injuries, disability, care costs, and adverse side effects. Chiropractic therapy is also a patient preference for providing pain relief.
8. Manages Behavioral and Learning Disabilities
Chiropractic procedures improve wellness and can help reduce hyperactivity and disruptive behaviors linked to ADHD and learning disabilities associated with autism.
Evidence supports that chiropractic treatment can better able a child to concentrate. In turn, it improves learning and behavior by limiting causes of agitation.
9. Weakens Dependence on Medication and Medical Interventions
There has been a 65% increase in patients seeking spinal treatment over an 8 year period, contributing to a significant rise in healthcare costs. However, approximately 96% of people with low back pain can find relief without surgery. This could lead to a remarkable lowering of costs.
Chronic pain is on the rise. The first line of treatment most individuals turn to for pain relief involves medication. Tens of thousands of people consuming drugs like acetaminophen and oxycodone have reported injuries and deaths directly resulting from drug use. Drugs have adverse side effects unlike chiropractic care.
Young adults are especially susceptible to drug overdoses. Dr. Joseph Wiley, Chief of Pediatrics at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, is quoted as saying “If you extrapolate from an adult dose to a pediatric dose, you may be right…you may be wrong.”
10. Normalizes Blood Pressure
Hypertension affects around 33% of Americans. Most of these individuals will use medication to manage the condition. Chiropractic care can significantly control blood pressure. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to result in a decrease in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure readings.
In fact, tests show that chiropractic care works as effectively at managing hypertension as do two of the most commonly prescribed medications. Chiropractors focus on the bone at the top of the neck in proximity to the brain stem which may be the reason for the impact on regulating blood pressure.

I know very little about chiropractic therapy, so I do not know how useful that it really is. Does doing chiropractic therapy really help people heal from cancer, infectious diseases, allergies, asthma, stress, and any other health issues?
Thanks for your honesty in admitting you are ignorant about the health discipline known as Chiropractic. Bare minimum, chiropractic spinal manipulation (known in the field as the “chiropractic adjustment”) is generally very helpful with localized painful back problems. Yet, in view of the intimate relationship between the spine and the nervous system (N.S.), with the latter mediating the many functions of organs and organ-systems, “spinal work” (along with adjunctive means such as exercise, diet and herbs) can provide a very salutary effect on the body, overall, and may potently enhance such things as immune system response.
As we are talking, essentially, about a normalizing action on the N.S., it would be difficult to predict the exact response in any given patient (and it would be unwise for one to promise a CURE for any specific condition), though the effects TEND to follow the “neuromeres” associated with the different levels of the spinal cord and spinal column. Chiropractic (based, more or less on the “Holistic Paradigm”) and comprising the #1 alternative health care discipline and tradition in the USA, can play a keenly important role in an individual’s health maintenance program (and is frequently helpful with various conditions, such as the ones you mention).
I might add that there are members of the medical community who have been very adamant in their attacks and attempts to debunk the discipline of Chiropractic, through the years. Yet, Chiropractic is based on legitimate principles of neurology and on what the medicos call “physical medicine” or “physiatry.” I was associated with a “pain control” clinic for about seven years, and the “head physician” belonged to this medical specialty of physiatry, and there were chiropractic doctors in the P.T. department. I will also note that originally the discipline of Osteopathy was very similar in approach and philosophy to that of Chiropractic, and that the “osteopathic lesion” (AKA, spinal “somatic dysfunction”) is essentially identical to the Chiropractic concept of the “Subluxation Complex.” As a matter of fact, today, some chiropractic doctors even employ that term, “somatic dysfunction,” arguing that this term–a more function-based representation of the disease concept–is a more accurate one.
I have been in Chiropractic care for just about a year saved my life would not have it any other way wellness is everything

Just as in doctors, they are wonderful IF you find the right one. I’ve just had major gut issues healed going to an amazing one that also understands gut issues. Many chiros also work with supplements and nutrition to help. I’ve spent years in doctors’ offices, labs, hospitals etc, with no results like this. Do your homework and ask around and you’ll find a great one!
Chiropractic doctors ARE doctors (and have accumulated–minimum–six years of education and training)(many, like myself, had EIGHT years!!).. And, yes, these doctors vary in their expertise and experience–just like those in other disciplines.
Kelly Freestone says
The different parts of the spine handle different parts of the body. Just because others don’t know about it, doesn’t mean they know what’s right. It just means they are uneducated. When the spine is not compressed and stressed, the signals and chemicals that travel through the body are free to move. Studies show that even compression the size of a dime’s height can be felt in the body. so YES, chiropractic CAN do all that!
Chose your Chiropractor wisely. They will handle a very precious part of your body!
Do research on those near you, read and heed others’ reviews.
If they EDUCATE you, that’s a good sign.
Just like anything in life…you have to do your homework & ask for referrals from friends/family. My chiro is super knowledgeable with true proper nutrition/wellness. From the very first appointment he encouraged us to get a food sensitively test which I delayed because of the expense…but guess what…it’s been a game changer for my daughter’s eczema. He explained to get true healing & adjustments that “stay” you must heal your adrenals/gut…whatever system is out of balance. The most important way to heal most things that are out of balance is through eating real, whole foods and not all the processed crap that unfortunately most of us are addicted to. A few spinal adjustments along the way has helped my daughter & myself feel better to get to a place that we want to take our health up another notch.
By rescuing pain due to alignment…you reduce stress and fatigue…which in itself can lead to a host of diseases.
So yes….it is very beneficial.
Marcus Dunn says
Let me ask a question; if your body was functioning NORMALLY, with all of its parts working perfectly, exactly the way they were designed and built to function, would you have health problems? I think the answer is NO. What part of your body controls and coordinates the function of all the other parts? Your brain. And in order for your brain to keep everything working NORMALLY, it needs to have clear nerve connections/communication between itself and all the other parts of your body. Because of the close relationship between your spine and nervous system you need to have an optimally aligned and moving spine in order for your body to function and heal at the highest levels. That’s what chiropractors do–we keep your spine and nerve system working their best.
I have been suffering from severe headaches and a chiropractor gave me back my life!
You have to be VERY careful choosing one of these people.
I went to one and she made my back worse.
Then i went to another one and he did not fix it either.
Then my friend took me to his friend( not qualified and no pieces of paper on the wall).
And he fixed me first go, never had a problem with my back since.
The other problem with Chiro’s is that they will work on you and tell you to come back again and again and again.
More money for them i suppose.
Just MY experience i want to share with you.
I”m sorry for your experience. That’s not an accurate depiction of all chiropractic doctors. Do you research of course, but chiropractic is more than a profession. It is a way of life. It’s reflective of a holistic lifestyle which empowers patients to lead a rich, happy & healthy life. I cherish my career & my patients! To set things straight, we have eight years of education- you should have asked to see your doctor’s credentials if you had any doubts. Typically, if you have an acute issue- you may be required to have repeat visits initially to reset your neurology. Once you are stable, once or twice/month is the typical frequency. Chiropractic again, is a lifestyle. Just as you eat healthily or exercise on a regular basis, so too should you receive chiropractic care. It’s that important!
Here in Australia chiropractors do a three year applied science degree with a two year masters. Many chiropractors are advertising that they have more education hours then doctors which I believe is not true.
For chiropractors to Pitt themselves with education or otherwise against other health professionals is professionally and morally wrong, each person has their role. I am a musculoskeletal practitioner and with 20 years of experience and educating myself all the time but I do not believe in denigrating other professionals who are trying their best to help.
Many people have come to me with pain and have mentioned they have had long treatment protocols with chiropractors to no end.
If as a health professional you are doing the right thing by people word of mouth will improve your business not Spruiking how good you are or how bad somebody else is
Something to think about!

Lynda Sykes says
Dear Graeme, I developed a severe case of scoliosis (curvature of the spine) when I was 14. By the time I was 15, I had begun to look like the Hunchback of Notre Dame. After taking me to several medical doctors, all of whom did absolutely nothing for me (not even physiotherapy helped), in desperation, my mother took me to a chiropractor. This wonderful and knowledgeable man was able to reverse the effects of the scoliosis to the point where you really have to look at me closely to even tell that it is still SLIGHTLY there. But it didn’t happen with just one visit. I am now 68 years old, and I have gone to a chiropractor regularly (about once a month) for all of my life – a practice which not only reversed the effects of the scoliosis (which no medical doctor could even put a dent in), but which has kept it at bay and me pain free for all of my life – and without dangerous and harmful medications. Do you change the oil in your car ONCE in all the time you own it, and expect it to run at optimal performance? Chiropractic treatment is maintenance for your body, just like tune ups and oil changes are maintenance for your car. And yes, you have to be careful when choosing a chiropractor, just as you have to be careful when choosing a medical doctor. The horror stories I could tell you of my own experiences down through the years with incompetent and uncaring mainstream medical doctors – I could write a book, quite literally. But does anyone ever question whether they should be going to mainstream medical doctors, who universally write out a prescription of some sort for you before you get out of their office? Every time they write out a prescription, they get a kickback, which is why the population is so heavily medicated – over-medicated, in my opinion. Every time they refer you for a (sometimes) unnecessary test, they get paid – in my opinion, we do too many of those as well. Yet the public never questions the validity of going to medical doctors, or taking non-stop (and often detrimental) medications, or undergoing unnecessary and sometimes dangerous tests; like they question the validity of going to chiropractors. You are being influenced by a VERY aggressive PR campaign against chiropractors that has been perpetrated against them by the mainstream medical community for over a 100 years. Yet in all of those years, there has not been one single documented case of death from chiropractic treatment. The mainstream medical community kills tens of thousands of people every year just from pharmaceutical drugs alone. Yet no one questions it. But they get real nervous if you mention the word “chiropractic” to them. There is a book, written by a once-mainstream medical doctor, Dr. Ghislaine Lanctot, entitled “The Medical Mafia,” which should be required reading for everyone. She’s an insider, with first-hand knowledge of the mainstream medical system, and her book is a real eye-opener on the state of “modern” medicine. Chiropractors are the least of our worries.
Linda Walton says
I could not agree with you more, Lynda! I am also elated to hear that your chiropractic treatments reversed your scoliosis. I love my chiropractor, she has helped me to walk normally again even with a hip that is bone-on-bone!
I too have scoliosis which was found out when I was in 5th grade when I was shoved down some concrete steps and had to have my back X-rayed. I am now 49 and have muscle spasms and little aches and pains. Yoga has helped some with the tightness in my muscles and I keep my weight in check (100-105 lbs @ 5’0” tall) and keep a strong core. I get deep tissue massages often and have trigger point therapy done when I’m knitted up and gave been to a few different chiropractors over the years with one just giving me exercises to do (which I already exercised pretty regularly). Another put heat and a tens unit on me and another twisted me and popped my neck and back. I am interested in knowing more about being able to improve my scoliosis.

Like most health “care” today it is making $$$ – chiropractic is not much different, there are chiropractors and there are chiropractors and there is a large middle between the two. I do not see those who make you come back on a regular basis, though some conditions may require quite a few repeat visits. That aside, the first one I ever saw did fix my allergies – and they were bad, when ever the pin oaks bloomed I could not go outside at all! When ever I had “slept wrong” and my neck was all stiff, 2 visits cured it! When i was doing a lot of home visits I saw the chiro on a monthly basis, because my lower back hurt too badly; he kept adjusting it and the pain was gone. When our then GP would prescribe antibiotic after antibiotic for my daughters horrible cough (mind you they never did a culture and sensitivity) I was extremely frustrated because she just got worse, took her to the chiro and as we left the first visit she exclaimed “Mom, I can breathe again!” Yes, you need to find one who will not schedule you for a million visits, one who knows what he is doing. Right now I see one who works with the NUCCA method, or a version there of. If your spine is not aligned you have all sorts of problems! The cost? No more than what my MD copays used to be and I have some one who actually helps, not writes a prescription and says see me again if it does not help. Needless to say, I have not seen an MD in about 10 years and I feel good!
Debi-Ann Ward says
Just as there are medical doctors who are pill pushers and not much else, there are chiropractors who are too rough. However, I’ve never had a chiropractor try to talk me into coming back if I didn’t need it. You can’t mess up your spine for decades and then expect a chiropractor to “fix” you in one or two appointments. Your spine needs to be retrained or it will return to the “wrong” or subluxated positions and over time, you won’t be any better off. However, going on a regular basis will make you feel a lot better. Chiropractic is great insurance for lowering stress, strengthening the immune system, and improving the overall physical, mental, and emotional health for a happier life.
I am walking because of a team of chiropractors. I was quadriplegic when I was three and a half years old and was diagnosed with polio. We lived near the banks of the Mississippi River in Davenport, IA, which is a high risk area for polio. My back was badly arched, and all my weight was on the back of my head and my buttocks. My arms were curled against my chest and my legs were curled against my lower abdomen. I wasn’t given much of a chance to even survive. In retrospect, it has been suggested that I probably had spinal meningitis, which could also be quite serious back in the 1950s. The team of chiropractors were soon-to-be graduates from Palmer Chiropractic College and, according to my mother, they came to our house all hours of the day and night to work on me. Within three weeks, I was no longer paralyzed, but I had to learn to walk again. Small price to pay! Today, I can dance!
Wow, what a story!! I wonder if you happen to know that the girl shown in the polio vaccine program promotional photographs in the fifties and sixties ..well, her parents eventually got her to a D.C., and she–like you–recovered from her paralysis. There are photos of her walking around–just like any normal kid!!! ; )

Marilyn Kay Foster says
Dr. John Bergman s wonderful. He saved me from six hours of bladder surgey. His corrective chiropractic adjustments and nutritional counseling made a world of difference in my life.
I love my chiropractor. At the age of 25 I started having severe back problems. I had been to several neurosurgeons who said that there was nothing that they could do for me. They were going to refer me to a pain clinic at the age of 32 and I didn’t want to be on pain meds. I spoke with a co worker who is a physical therapist who suggested that I try going to a chiropractor. She gave me a website to research chiropractors in my area and she recommended that I find one who did acupuncture also. I did my research and found one that was highly recommended. That was 5 years ago and I still go to see him. I strongly believe that he is the reason that I can still work and live a normal life without pain medications. I couldn’t and wouldn’t want to do without my monthly adjustment now. He also does myofacial needling which helps with pain. You just have to make sure that you check them out good prior to seeing them and check their credentials. Just like any other professions, there are good ones and bad ones.
I had a curved spine when I was younger and he did fix it but I did spend a lot of money and afer about 1.5 years I stopped seeing him.
More recently I now see a different type of chiro and he is excellent.
I do get headaches and stiff sore shoulders etc and am glad he gives my body a “tune up” as he says. Best money I ever spend!
Mitchell Rapp says
Personally seen many people benefit from chiropractic treatment and proper adjustments to the spine. A referral is always a good idea too, just like seeing any other type of doctors… Especially if I was going to be having spine surgery, I would definitely exhaust every conservative option out there, especially Chiropractic… Good luck and God bless!!
I have been seeing a chiropractor regularly (once or twice a month) for the last 25 years. Now chiropractic is not the only tool in my health toolbox but it is a significant one.
I agree that not all chiropractors are the same, I have seen about a dozen different ones over the last 25 years, and while they all have the same schooling, they are different. Just like medical doctors and therapists, some fit for you and some don’t.
I find that most people who do not see a chiropractor complain about the frequency that chiropractors suggest for treatment. What these people need to realize is that your body does not reach the state that it is in overnight, and so one adjustment is not going to ‘fix’ it permanently. The frequency of adjustments depends on the amount of retraining the muscles and ligaments need to keep your spine where it should be. As I mentioned, I go once or twice a month to keep things aligned, just like I exercise every day to keep my muscles strong and joints supple.
I can feel when my spine or other joints are out of alignment. This could be the result of sleeping funny, a long day of travel, over exertion, a fall or other injury, even stress. I go to the chiropractor and I can feel the immediate return of the energy that was blocked. If I go for an adjustment at the first sign of a cold, then the cold rarely progresses.
I do not believe that chiropractic offers a quick fix. It is a maintenance tool to restore and then maintain good health. If someone has neglected their health for a long time then it will take longer (with more frequent adjustments) to get back to good health. I don’t think it is a money grab. The chiropractor’s intent is to get you healthy enough to get to a maintenance program where you go infrequently. Unfortunately very few people make that kind of commitment to their health.
Tonya M Dunn says
An Upper cervical chiropractor, has done more to help me in the last month than a traditional chiropractor did in 14 years.
I went to a chiropractor, explained I have a herniated disk in lower back. During the adjustment my back locked up on me. My back was worse than when I started. Since then I have been doing exercises for my back and so far it’s working. The stretching is keeping me out of the operating room.
My advice is if you go to a chiropractor be VERY CAREFUL! Research first.
Ruth Zamora says
I had trigger thumbs and chiropractic took care of it. My sister had the same thing and she had surgery. I have also had back problems and chiropractic took care oof it.
beth westcott says
My husband and I have known the benefits of chiropractic therapy for years. We took our children when they lived at home. We feel it has made us healthier. We feel better and have better immunity to illnesses. I don’t hesitate to recommend it. I have never experienced a chiropractor that makes me return unnecessarily. Most of them didn’t want to overdo chiropractic care. As we’ve moved from place to place, we’ve also experienced different methods, and you have to find the one you’re most comfortable with.
Melodie Byrne says
Finding my chiropractor was the best thing that ever happened to me. I suffered with constant headaches and neck pain. Conventional doctors just gave me medication which made me feel worse. I have not been to a regular doctor in years as my chiropractor is able to recommend more natural ways to help me along with the chiropractic care. I look forward to seeing him every month. You would be surprised how the spine (and being out of alignment) plays a role in every area of your health, I realize not everyone believes in this practice but as I stated before, it is the best thing for me. Once you find a great chiropractor, you’ll never stop going.
Peggy Newlen says
Seek out a chiropractor that someone you know and trust goes to one. They are all not created equal. I had a bad experience, but changed drs and now I trust my chiropractor with my life. They are worthy to be called Doctors. They make adjustments in your body in order for our bodies to heal by itself. When we have headaches, back aches, carpel tunnel etc, the Chiropractor knows how to move that area, so our spinal fluid can flow again, the body responds (not right away) I was 40 when I started going to a chiropractor, that means I had 40 years of misaligned spine, among other ailaments, so in the beginning, I had to return every day for a good while, but my body began to respond, and hold the adjustment. 20 years later, I have less pain, less headaches, more praise for God who allowed me to meet my Dr Eric Lindsell here in Columbia Maryland. He is the only doctor I truly feel comfortable going to, and my insurance company even has called me when they found out that the chiropractor helped with my acid reflux, they wanted to know how I was doing, because the woman who called me, also had acid reflux and wanted to know more about chiropractic care.
Go to a corrective chiropractor. Their main emphasis is the nervous system as the root of all ailments and make adjustments accordingly. Unfortunately corrective chiropractors are few and far between. You may have to travel a good distance to see one. The best example of a corrective chiropractor is to watch Dr John Bergman’s videos on Youtube youtube.com/user/johnbchiro/featured
Different chiropractors do different things. My mother’s chiropractor includes massage treatments that can help with pain relief. On the other hand, my chiropractor provides Pulse Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF), that can provide pain relief as well as activate the immune system which helps fight cancer.
I was in a car accident and messed up my neck a long time ago. A lot people told me not to see a chiropractor. I went anyways and he helped me but it took a year and it was uncomfortable at times. I quit going and lived with a little pain for years. I finally went to a guy I found on yelp with great reviews and I am completely pain free now. Some have a different style maybe. Just like anything. Overall, I would not count chiropractors out. I am very glad I found the second one I went to.
Louise Ruppell says
My family & I have been seeing a Chiroprator for years..I myself feel great.. So benificial for your health..I am a Health Care Aid..my spine is in good shape..I am a firm believer in natural foods..my mother was a wonderful example of Chiropractic
Care..I truly recommend this to anyone.
Diane Trollope says
It does pay to have a good one. I had two dislocated ribs in my back, but only felt severe pain in my breast bone.
It curbed driving and many things I needed to be about. Finally I went to a chiropractor and he took X-rays after hearing my tales of pain.
I could actually see them out of place myself. He was a great help got them in place, and gave me exercises to keep them there.
I had been hit by lightning inside at a metal pump and been thrown 20 feet into a counter when I was teenager.
Later in life I had a pinched nerve and someone…a chiropractor, tried something and I dragged my leg for a week.
So do be careful in choosing. I also had friends who are tall and they brought their children up with these treatments and they stand tall, straight and have no back problems. Wonderful asset for them all.
Going back “again and again” is because chiropractic care isn’t advertised as a one- stop quick fix. Like going to the dentist, regular maintenance is the way to go.
A healthy spine contributes to health and well-being. I have found chiropractic care to be beneficial as have many of my friends and family.
Yes! The first time I had a chiropractic adjustment, I stood straight…could breath and got a surge of energy.
Gail Smith says
I had a repetitive motion shoulder injury from my job. I couldn’t raise my arm higher than my shoulder. Two doctors I went to wanted to give me cortisone shots in the shoulder. I declined. I went to a chiropractor at the urging of a friend and I asked him if he recommended me getting these shots and he replied: No…I’m going to fix you…and he did. It took a few sessions but he fixed the underlying cause of the injury and didn’t just mask the pain. I love that!
Maximized Living Chiropractors are the best! They offer a complete wellness program that is life changing and encompasses everything that you need to do to be healthy and rebuild your sick body or maintain your health. I have lived the traditional American lifestyle for more than 30 years and it has nearly destroyed my immune system. I took many rounds of antibiotics/steroids that only treated symptoms but did not cure me. It also left me in a chronic state of inflammation. I been going to my chiropractor for 9 months now and am on the road to better health. My inflammation is greatly reduced and my body feels so much better, especially after an adjustment. I have a long road ahead of me but I will not give up on my goal of attaining a completely healthy body and lifestyle.

my family and I have found a wonderful chiropractor who uses non-force treatment. This means he does not crack you, he simply balances your muscles so that they are in proper alignment. It’s not so much a peaceful massage as it is painful because he is relieving your muscles of tension. However, he is only one of 2 people who use this method (he created it himself after going to chiropractic school and being dissatisfied at the therapies he learned). He is super knowledgeable and we trust him. My mom has stage 4 lung cancer, and at the urging of her friend she went to this chiro. He taught us that all vertebrae are connected to organs. If vertebrae are out of alignment, just like the article said, your brain cannot receive the message to send life-saving lymph fluid to fight cancer cells. My mom started going to the chiro at the very beginning of her treatment. Her T3 and T4 vertebrae we out of alignment. After a few sessions he believed he got her brain and her lungs communicating again. My mom’s first scan after starting treatment showed a tumor reduction of 39%. I can’t say it’s all because of the chiro (we incorporate all therapies–chemo, essential oils, alkaline diet, chiro, positive state of mind), but I think it has definitely helped in her overall wellness. She is a friggin warrior <3
I went to a chiropractor when my neck and back felt so stiff. He asked me if I had ever had a head injury as a child. I said yes, that when I was 5 or 6, I was sitting under a tall, drippy faucet and stood up suddenly, hitting the top of my head. It knocked me out and I had to have 13 stitches on the top. He said I had a really screwed up back, and he fixed it slowly over 3 months until it was finally in place, like it should have been normally. It really helped me.
I believe in Chiropractic Care. The good Chiropractors will adjust you and make you better. To the comment above about taking the third try to be pain proves the point. When we abuse ourselves in o to he point of pain it will take more than one visit. By third visit she had relief of her pain. Had she stayed with the first person she went to, she could gotten the same result. When I get adjusted I always get a massage in affected area. Once the muscle tension is relieved the adjustment can hold new position. Try it you have nothing to loose.
Mine got rid of my vertigo…which had been made worse by my P.T. person, after three Epley’s. And, knowing my financial situation, has given me 6 free sessions/

Everyone should check out airrosti treatment. These folks start out chiropractor and add amazing training in healing!
My husbands weight is about 150 to 160 pounds and I have to transfer him (no help from him) at least twice a day if we stay home. I’m 69 years old so I see the chiropractor once a week and he takes my Medi Care so it only cost me about $8.00 a week. And I feel great. He fixes my back, my neck and my knees. Before that I was in a lot of pain.

I love your blogs and articles. It’s always my morning read. My questions is: How can I print them off. My 90 year mother is very health conscious but does not have a computer. I know she would thoroughly enjoy some of these articles that could contribute to her already healthy living but how do I print them??
You do need to be careful about picking a chiropractor, but I tell everyone that will listen how my chiropractor CHANGED my life 🙂 🙂 🙂 In 2011 at 50 years of age, after 7 years, I finally talked my husband into hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back up with me. The biggest problem was that I had been being treated for chronic back injury for more than 20 years and I had been on medications constantly for pain, inflammation & even being paralyzed flat on back a couple times each month. My HCP said this would be the routine until eventually I would have my back operated on and, “see what happens”‘. As soon as my husband said he would hike the GC with me I purchased our trip since it sells out a year in advance. Then I begin to read about hiking the GC and reading horror stories of people crawling out on their hands and knees. A number of people die in the Canyon each year, and if a helicopter can come to get you it’s very expensive. I begin to cry out to God, “I didn’t do this to kill myself, I did it to see your beauty”. “What am I going to do?!?!” To make a long story a little shorter, with nothin to loose I went to see a holistic chiropractor that specialized in nutrition. He asked me go to my HCP and get an ex-ray. My HCP Strongly advised against me hiking the GC, but my wonderful chiro said he believed he could help me do it. I have NEVER had another pill for my back. I have never been flat in bed on back again. I am no longer in any kind of pain. And I hiked the GC at end of 2011 and back out again, with a backpack.
Since that time my chiro has helped to get my long time non-working thyroid fully working again and I’m well on my way to being healed from what HCPs call Hashimoto’s. I’m a new healthy person thanks to my chiro and good nutrition. I spent many years in pain and believing I’d be in a wheelchair before I was 65. Now I say I’ll be 100 walking around poking my kids and telling them to move faster 🙂
Had the experience of playing hockey and after a particularly brutal game woke up unable to move. I was completely paralyzed. Scariest morning ever. After a few minutes at a chiropractor I was able to be functional again. Never want that experience again so I continue to visit a chiropractor to this day. Combined with healthy eating will keep you in tip top shape allowing your body to heal itself.
I have used Chiropractic care for about 30 years to help with chronic migraines ( from 2-3 migraines per week down to maybe 2 per month!)
I’ve seen several different Chiropractors with various types of manipulation. As in seeking any doctor, you need to do your homework. I’ve been through the great to not so good.
It’s also important to know where your body’s need is if you practice chiropractic care for a long period of time. I learned this first hand.
While the activator method was effective for many years, I started to experience discomfort and not getting the usual relief. I stopped seeking chiropractic care for several years.
After an automobile accident, my primary care physician recommend chiropractic care for my severe whiplash. I shared my experience with the activator manipulation to which my physician recommend a cranial sacral method. Much to my surprise, I got immediate relief. I continued with this type of chiropractic care for 5 years until one day I wasn’t able to go up stairs. Again returned to my primary care physician who was not able to find anything wrong physically. Trying to help, I was then sent to a physical therapist. After several weeks, the therapist was also not understanding why I was not getting relief or improving. I felt for the first time in my life hopelessness. I shared with a friend my situation and she recommended a chiropractor to which I shared my past experiences. She explained there are differences even in activator methods as some chiropractors use the activator with proper training. I needed help so I went to the recommended Chiropractor and got relief not only for what turned out to be a pinched nerve in my back but also for my migraines (by the way, that’s why I stopped the prior activator treatment as I was getting migraines after treatment) my sinuses and help with the ringing in my ears.
I hope in sharing my story this will help someone. I’m proof chiropractic care works.

I’ve had very positive experiences with chiropractic care. I was suffering from low back pain, very chronic which affected my every day life. Seeing a chiropractor has healed my back to the point I can function normally. I’m not 100% due to deteriorating discs but feel so much better. I also have less sinus pressure and pain and no headaches. I sleep better, have more energy and it was the first winter I didn’t get a cold! I feel my immune system is functioning much better. My digestion is better also. Just like any profession you have to find a good one.
I went to a chiropractor for carpel tunnel….. while he was working on me, I heard a pop in my head and started leaking clear fluid out my nose… I mentioned it to him and he said that my sinuses must have cleared…… the leaking continued for months. Finally an ear, nose and throat doc tested the fluid and discovered that it was cerebral spinal fluid…. the spinal manipulation caused the dura around my brain to pop, creating an open airway to my brain….. it took 3 brain surgeries to get the problem fixed….. my neurosurgeons said that they believe for most people chiropractic is alright…. but because they don’t do enough testing on the patient first, it can cause devastating problems for some….. it is a fact that chiropractic increases cranial pressure…. which can be a major problem for someone who has an unknown aneurism in the making…. or like myself, a weak place in my dura. My neurosurgeon said he had personally treated many people with a burst brain aneurism that had visited a chiropractor within the week prior. His belief was that it was much safer to spend your money on a massage therapist and get better results.
You MUST remember that not all chiros are competent. After I started having musculoskeletal pain, the first chiro I went to was just dishonest. Also, keep in mind that most chiros will not do lab testing that might reveal a deficiency that is the cause of your problem. I had life-long silent celiac disease until age 57; none of the chiros I went to were particularly interested in it. Before being diagnosed celiac, an MD diagnosed me (via MRI) with spinal degeneration. Some years later, I discovered on my own that my low Total Blood Protein of 6.1 g/dl (normal range 6.2-8.3; lower end of range is too broad) was related to my problems. Protein digestion is severely degraded by celiac, and age doesn’t help. Once I began using a blend of 9 free essential amino acids, the musculoskeletal pain went away, and I hardly ever see chiropractors now.

Research NUCCA – National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (nucca.org) – Palmer Method t- o locate a chiropractor! For years, I suffered with chronic lower back pain, had steroid injections, used narcotic pain meds, had numerous chiropractic adjustments twisting my head/neck/arm, etc., along with use of assorted stretching mechanisms, and physical therapy, … all to no avail. Once introduced to the upper cervical adjustment …. whereby the atlas bone is the ONLY adjustment, and commitment to treatment to resolve, I no longer have back issues or pain, in addition, no more migraines or sinus infections! If I begin to feel the slightest discomfort in my back, I go for an adjustment, which is precise intermitinet finger pressure placed on my neck behind my ear for maybe 30 seconds, and I’m good to go for another year! It is unbelievable; I never would have believed such treatment would be effective had I not had a friend who introduced me to such. If I recollect correctly, I saw the chiropractor daily the first week, then 4 days the second week, three the next week, 2 the fourth week, once the fifth week, and then monthly for two months. It did not take me overnight to get into such misalignment, thus, it took repeated visits to get my spine straight again, as it wanted to return to the misalignment! NUCCA chiropractors are hard to find, but worth the search and the drive if not located in your immediate area.
Peggy Newlen says
I agree totally. The maintenance is key “after” going on a regular basis to get healthy enough to be on maintenance. Life happens, we can have sleep injuries and never figure out how this happened. Sometimes I have to go more often, but mostly I am every other week. It is a commitment, but when you feel better for doing it, it becomes automatic. And Praise God insurance helps out with it.
Casper Hsieh says
I agree with all alternative natural therapies. I’m just wondering why no one consider MASSAGE is one of greatest therapy from them. I’m talking about the massage is not the massage normally people enjoy in regular spa or massage establishment, instead I’m talking about the one that has been practiced thousand years up to now from Traditional Chinese Medicine. Regardless the name of Tui Na, An Ma, Acupressure, Foot/Ear/Hand Reflexology…., they all came from same basic philosophy and theory of TCM. Sorry to say that due to the medical system and immature concept in healthcare in most of areas in current United States, most of people are not familiarized with such medical/healing massage which is integrated multi modalities according human body’s meridians, acupoits, skeleton structure, emotion…, and therapy itself may be involved chiropractic, soft tissue manipulation, stretch, music, emotion release techniques and more. If you really want to look human body as a whole unit(Body,Mind,Spirit) heal the root not symptom you have better choice of getting such Massage, it’s not just saving time and money but also rewarded better health results by one stop serve all.
I have been going to a Chiropractic Doctor for over 20 years. One leg is shorter then the other. As I got older, I started having back pain. The Doctor diagnosed my problem and now I have a small lift in my shoe. It took several years of treatment for me to get better. Now I don’t have to see her on a regular basis. When I first started seeing this doctor, my insurance did not cover chiro care. Later my insurance covered chiro care and I went to a different chiro doctor. His treatments did not help my condition at all. I stopped going to him and went back to the original chiro doctor. She is not in it for the money. She truly cares about how I feel. After a treatment with her, I feel so much better. My mood is relaxed, my breathing is improved and I feel like a younger man!! I am 58.
It is just my humble opinion that when your skeletal system is working properly, (no pain or inflammation) that is one less thing your immune and nervous systems has to worry about/repair. When I informed this doctor I had colon cancer, she gave me a list of foods I should eat and also sent me a link to this website. She has been a Godsend. This has been my experience.
Dr. Juli (chiropractor) says
Well said!!! You are a properly-educated chiropractic patient!!! THANK YOU!!!
Linda O'Day says
I had a great chiropractor when I lived in NY state but after moving to Fl I can’t say that I had the same experience. For years they took my money but never suggested that there might be something else wrong. Then I went to one that also did decompression, another $5,000. down the drain with no relief. I am now with a pain management doctor and feeling better than I have in many, many years. I was feeling like the woman in the Bible that had spent all her money going to doctors and getting no help but now I finally am feeling relief.
All these many years later, I find it interesting but discouraging that by the remarks above, there is still so much misinformation about Chiropractic and what Chiropractors do. Much of the information on various websites is incomplete or inaccurate.
First of all, Chiropractors attend 4 years or more of intensive training in biochemistry, anatomy and physiology, body mechanics, nutrition, clinical practice and more. They are highly trained Doctors in healing using non-invasive methods without drugs and/or surgery.
The primary “tool” in the Chiropractor’s toolbox is the specific adjustment of an area of the spine or elsewhere in the body. A specific adjustment is different from random “manipulation” and follows an analysis to determine where/how exactly the adjustment is to be applied. This is a point that some people seem not to understand. The scope of practice of a Chiropractic Physician is described by the state in which he or she practices, as well as other regulations. This includes the use of various diagnostic methods, lab tests, scans, minor surgical procedures, even obstetrical practices, etc. Chiropractors have passed state board exams in order to be able to practice.
There are many, many, many different Chiropractic techniques. Anyone seeking care should ask the Doctor they are considering about the technique(s) she/he uses and how it works. Some Chiropractors specialize in “low force” or “non-force” techniques which look/feel a lot different from manual techniques that people tend to traditionally associate with Chiropractic.
I guess it is somewhat fair to say “not all chiros are competent” as long as you also include medical doctors, teachers, nurses, accountants, electricians, plumbers, attorneys . . . well you get my drift. However, seldom would anyone say that if they met an incompetent accountant, that they wouldn’t use one again. They would, hopefully, do their research and find one they can work with.
And on the subject of multiple visits, no one would ever expect to have braces put on their teeth and taken off the next and experience the same change in tooth alignment that one gains after gradual realignment with numerous adjustments along the way over many months or years. Why would any thinking person expect to be permanently “healed” in a couple of Chiropractic adjustments? Usually people’s spinal issues have taken years to degrade to the point of doing anything which usually begins with taking over the counter painkillers and/or drugs before getting Chiropractic care.
Silvia, regarding your question, reports in a Chiropractic office of improvement in all those conditions you ask about are very common. Chiropractic is also a form of what has been called “energy medicine” which produces healing effects beyond just the manual movement of bones, connective tissue and muscles, etc. The amount of time and money spent with a good Chiropractor is a very wise health investment. Ask friends, look around, arrange a consultation (which are often free of charge) and find out for yourself. Don’t listen to people badmouth something they know little or nothing about. We ALL need to take responsibility for our OWN health and that means going beyond what most of us have been taught for decades.
Thanks, Ty! For putting this article out into the universe for more people to learn about! You are doing great work!
Dr. Juli (chiropractor) says
FYI: Chiropractors attend 8 years of study. 4 in a university and 4 in chiropractic school (just like medical school). In some areas, we have MORE training, but we do not, of course, have hours in either surgery or pharmacology. We, instead focus more on nutrition and prevention!!! We also do more hours in both anatomy and physiology.
Tina Toburen says
Stories like this one scare me… that and the “free adjustment” at the carwash… ya know it’s a good one, then, right?? 🙂
But, I had nothing better to do, and you figure they’ll start slow with something that hooks people with an easy, feel good “win”, right? NOPE! His vibrating massager thing was so intense, it GAVE me a headache. The dude was confused when I yelled at him to get that nasty device OFF me. Of course he also gave me the total look of disbelief when I told him I never get headaches…
When my back and joints feel out of whack, I do YOGA. I let my own body heal itself, no need to poke and prod it from without. If I run into a chronic issue I may change my mind, but to date (in my mid-40’s)… no need to push the limits.
Every item on the list in the article can be improved with good food, good sleep, and appropriate exercise (for me, that’s mostly walking, hiking and yoga). When good food isn’t enough, I’m finding real results with homeopathy and essential oils, too.
What are you talking about the “free adjustment at the carwash?” For me, it didn’t connect with any of the conversatins currently on the blog.
Robert Fuller says
I think physical therapy is a better option for me. Went to DC FOR years and had same problem each time. Went to physical therapy and they gave me exercises to do. Problem gone.
Dr. Juli (chiropractor) says
You obviously picked the wrong one!!! I give my patients exercises to do ALL THE TIME!!! Whether they do them is another issue!!!
Lucy Marrello says
I agree with the girl at the top. In my experience I did not see any benefits from chiropractors. They keep telling you to go back and spend money but with no help whatsoever.
Gosh. That sounds exactly like what MDs do. ????
Lucy’s comment sounds like your typical anti-Chiropractic propaganda baloney. And, yes, there are just as many incompetent medical doctors!!!
Susan Wilson says
I had curvature of the spine as a child from two vertebrae in my neck not aligned. I had an operation when I was 12 then continual problems with sinus until I began treatments with chiropractic at 33 which relieved most of these symptoms. After about ten years of this treatment and my neck not ‘staying in place’ I decided to work on it myself by asking my body ‘what is this all about’, sitting with it for two hours and feeling my body tell me what the problem was. After this I continued with asking my body to tell me and eventually five years ago I found the truth, the whole truth, that all my problems with my body were caused by me not valuing who and what I am and trusting my connection to my soul instead of previously not realising that my spirit (a separated aspect of the soul) has been ‘running the show’ all my life. Since I have reclaimed my power to connect to my soul through feeling my inner-heart and not listening to my head I have been able to heal myself of cancer, sinus, spine mis-alignments and also head/skull mis-alignment. What this means is that I am now working with the whole part of me – emotions, beliefs, ideals, spiritual aspects to release all of these. This is what I am not. I am now what I am – a fully connected soulful human-being consciously emanating the Divineness we all are equally so.
What I would say is that chiropractic is a good start to take care and feel into our bodies but the crunch is that we all have been led down a pathway for thousands of years where we have given our power away to an outside authority – our human spirit – and not recognised that your true origins are our soul that is connected from within our inner-heart. We are all one humanity, we are all connected through the energy of Divine Will through our body equally so. We have not been taught that ‘Everything is energy’ which was expressed by Einstein over a century ago. We have a choice of energy to connect to and receive information from either our soul or our spirit. That is true free will because as soon as we connect to our soul we have ‘on tap’ all the information in the universe from Divine Will. If we are unaware of this fact then the spirit is ‘telling us’ its supposed truths which most of humanity is running with. If you haven’t heard this truth before it simply means that your spirit doesn’t want you or won’t allow you to hear or acknowledge it. And if you are re-acting to this then your spirit is in charge, sorry but that’s the way it is, but deep in our heart we know the truth, are you willing to dig it up? With love to you all.
Peggy Staneff says
Went to a chiropractor and he fractured my vertebrae. Am living with pain everyday.
Myrna Davis says
I have been going to chiropractors since 1979, when I pulled out a hip while dancing. I couldn’t believe the relief. Then, our son got hurt playing Little League. We took him to the same chiropractor, and as soon as our son got off the table, he could once more touch his toes, and without pain. Never saw such a happy kid. I still go whenever I can. It has helped stiff necks, tight shoulders, and other problems. I also believe it should be combined with either meridian healings or massage. When the muscles are relaxed, the bones often “fall into place.” Tension and tight muscles can move bones.
Be aware that sometimes, you may still feel sore after an adjustment. This is normal, until the body relaxes into the right position. Another caveat. You may also have a medical condition that needs regular medical care. In 2001, I had a herniated disc in my neck (following a car accident), with excruciating pain. My present chiropractor said it was serious and sent me to the orthopedic institute, where I had to finally receive two cortisone shots, which worked. No problem since, and have continued getting neck adjustments without a problem.
Just remember, it’s all one body (bones, muscles, nerves, blood, brain). Good health comes with taking care of the whole body, the sum of its parts. Chiropractic is only one phase, but a good one. Find a practitioner who is recommended.
Dr. Juli (chiropractor) says
OMG!!! Chiropractic is an amazing healing profession!!! BUT, just as in Western Medicine, there are both good & bad Doctors of Chiropractic!!! I am VERY sorry to hear about the bad results, and excessive overuse of adjustments that have caused many of you to avoid getting the needed care which would probably be beneficial on your road to, or return to, health!!! Your body needs time to process ANY type of therapy or treatment!!! I have been a chiropractor for 37 years and my husband for 42 years … and his father before him was also a chiropractor. For the most part, you are correct in stating that numerous visits per week for an extended period are usually unnecessary. If nothing is changing, you should have the sense to either change chiropractors or change methods of healing for your particular needs. I, however, caution the author of this article (Doctor of Chiropractic) about either stating outrightly, or inferring, that Chiropractic can cure or heal cancer. IT CANNOT!!! The only healer of the body is THE BODY ITSELF!!! Chiropractic care allows the body to function in a more optimal manner and thus, possibly or probably, rid itself of unwanted stressors, but it DOES NOT have the power to heal ANYTHING!!! Do your research and find the right Doctor of Chiropractic and you (and your entire family) will enjoy a smoother journey through this life!!!
Louise DiSclafani says
I went to a chiropractor many years ago. It seemed to be helping my back. Then one day he asked me what I was doing as my back was not as tight as it usual was at a visit. I told him I had started Pilates and it was really making me feel better. He agreed and said I was making his job easier. Not sure that was the right thing to say. But I did stop going when I moved. I still do Pilates, with small weights, and added TAI CHI. I’m so much more flexible etc. I’ve thought about going back but not as motivated now with my exercises working so well.
Linda Walton says
Louise DiSclafani, that is amazing and resonates with something someone recently shared with me in regard to her doing Yoga and her chiropractor telling her that if she continues to do Yoga, she would never have to see him again!
Maxine shaw says
I’ve been using chiropractic care for over two years….I was first introduced to them through a promotion they had at our church. This was and still is the best health decision I made..we had the best Drs, I have severe allergies to just about everything…also high blood pressure, which is only activate when I don’t sleep, and my emotion gets in the way…I was in the care of these guys for six months, they did what “good” chiropractor do…and in that time slot I came off the blood pressure med..they’re big on educating us about life changes, ie proper diets, clean water, sleep,exercise,the way you sit, stand etc… I was also treated for bad headache due to sinuses..and my “favourite ” spasms” my spine was crooked and after I was finish with care…it now looks like a 16 year old spine…we have records for this..my chiropractor “is” a part of my overall well-being..I would now go sit anywhere and anyhow, and the first thing that comes to my mind, is PROPER POSTER!! I do recommend that if you need a good chiropractor….do your research first..in my case it was put on by our church…they’re reputable Drs and I’m bless to have had them in my life when I needed “help”.
I have been with Dr. Gibson for more than 5 yrs now and is always a relief. Sometimes I go because of back pain, knee pain, etc. I also went with him durin my first pregnancy and it was a lot of help. I do believe in chiropractors.
My biggest problem with chiropractors, even the good ones, is that too often, there is this “ta-da” syndrome. Look what I just did! Isn’t that amazing? And too many chiropractors, even the good ones, seem to reflect that. It feels like once they’ve wowed you with all they can do, then they cut way back on what they will do, and have you come back time after time after time to fix the problem. My experience has been that they never quite get the problem taken care of, or maybe I just lose patience with the process. My feeling is that they could get a lot more done than they do, but
Cindy Hauck says
Dr. Ken Cooper of Cooper’stown Chiropractic is awesome! His practice focuses on total holistic healthcare and wellness. I have been his patient for 6 months…we are one big happy family. He is located in Fullerton, California. So…if you are nearby I encourage you to check it out…you will be happy you did!
G Clay says
If everyone got their Magnesium levels to where they should be, i believe it would put half the allopathic doctors and many of the chiropractors out of business! I don’t say this lightly, I went to 5 different chiropractors for many years for whiplash 3 different time a couple different injuries and Frozen Shoulder Syndrome. I ended up having to educate my self and I haven’t been to a doctor or chiropractor in 6 years and don’t need one. Learn about Magnesium “The Master Mineral”, then teach others.
I went a a chiropractor for the first time in my life just over a month ago. I had chronic neck pain that was debilitating me. At the time I was going through a very stressful period in my life. My chiropractor used a mix of cracking my neck, massage, reflexology and acupuncture. The moment he stuck a needle in my ear, I felt very emotional. As soon as I left I bury into tears and cried for the remainder of the night. I was so worried I research it. My neck pain, I believe, was brought on by pent up stress and the emotional breakdown was the healing process. It was so surreal but it helped me to recover quickly afterwards.
Its a mistake to think that Chiropractic care is used only for pain. Pain only represents 10% of your nervous system function, the other 90% is related to function. I worked in the Chiropractic field as an assistant for almost 5 years. My job was to educate patients on the nervous systems role and how subluxation, a misalignment in the spine, can cause restriction to the communication between the brain and the body for healing. I can illustrate this with my own experience. My youngest daughter was born with the cord wrapped tightly round her neck twice. She was blue and it took 2 minutes to get her breathing. After we got home and for the next year, she screamed for 14 hours a day and woke at least 30 times a night. By the time she was 1, she was placed on double the adult dose of Vallergen Fort so I could get some sleep and although she still woke 5 times a night, it was heaven for me. Her mood swings and violence were so severe, by the time she was 4, she had to be placed on anti-psychotics and anti-depressants. She had smashed everything in my house with what seemed like super strength. Her older brother and sister stayed at friends as much as they could to avoid her trying to stab them on a daily basis and the marriage to her father ended. Every day, I put up with a minimum of 6 hour long tantrums filled with violence and rage and no way to control them. I had no support and it seemed like all anyone wanted to do was blame me and say I was a bad parent. My Specialist called the hospitals top Psychiatrist and Psychologist in to ask for help and they both agreed it sounded like Bipolar and they would put her on Lithium when she’d gone through puberty. When she was 8, after 2 years of bullying at school with kids trying to make her go off, I had to pull her out and send her to live with her father. They took her off all medication and over the following 15 months she regressed severely, becoming very antisocial, depressed, anxious, and withdrawn. I went to work for a Chiropractor and he taught me all about the nervous system and how it controls every function in the body. When he explained that the nerves at the base of the skull control mood, I asked if that could be what was causing my daughters problem since she’d been born with the cord wrapped around her neck. He said it was and I had her x-rayed. Her nerves were so badly crushed that one blow to her head would’ve severed the nerves that keep the heart beating and the lungs breathing. This is called a Hangman’s Fracture and is why people die when their neck is broken. It was serious. She began adjustments every fortnight when I would have her with me and she was adjusted 4 times in each fortnightly weekend to retrain muscles and ligaments back into their correct position. She got worse at first but by the end of the first year, she had changed dramatically for the better. Three years later, she was put into an academic class and voted as one of the most popular girls in school. A big improvement from where she’d been. Today my daughter is 21. She still requires periodic adjustments and she knows now when her moods start to swing, but for the most part of her life now, she no longer has Bipolar. I saw 3 other patients come through the offices I worked in with Bipolar, and Chiropractic adjustments worked to help all 3 of them. The 2 Chiropractors I worked for both ran Corrective centres where we provided treatment on a prepaid yearly basis and the prices were dropped dramatically for the commitment patients would make. Progress assessments were done monthly as what we were achieving was actual correction rather than treatment for pain. The program required x-rays and 3 adjustments a week for 3 months, and 2 adjustments for an indefinite period until the calcification had been reversed enough to reduce frequency. There are a lot of Chiropractors out and most only give treatment for pain. I would highly recommend finding a Chiro who does x-rays, provides Corrective treatment, preferably using a technique called Chiropractic Biophysics, a technique I saw the best results from.
Thank you I will research Chiropractic Biophysics as I would love to find a corrective chiropractor in Southern NJ. I tried a couple but they only wanted to “fix pain” I said I just needed wellness care and to make sure I was in proper alignment and they would only ask what hurts. I ran out of body parts and never felt it was an overall benefit to me. There are no Maximized Living clinics within 50 miles of me and if you have any other research terms that a chiropractor would use for corrective care I would love to know what they are called. I saw one in Florida years ago and he would basically check my entire system on each visit and I felt great and went in 2x a month to continue feeling great. I use Pilates and stretching exercises to keep my core strong for my back, but he elbows and wrists from computer work are always an issue for me. Thank you again!
Wow, what a great personal story, Debra!!! ; ) And, it was neat to read your mention of the “hangman’s fracture.” Most folks, I imagine, think that a hanged man-or woman–dies because of asphyxiation. Not so. It’s due to the fracturing of the “dens” and the shoving of bone into the spinal cord…which disrupts the centers in the brain stem, leading to death.
And, you’re correct that Chiropractic is not only about the alleviation of pain. It also is not so much about a “bone out of place” (BOP), than a disruption of normal function, which even some D.C.s don’t seem to understand!!! I did a cursory check of online Chiropractic doctors a couple of years ago, and found that MANY were a bit clueless about what our discipline is really about. Chiropractic is about correction of problems which affect function (via the nervous system, and mostly involving spinal manipulation).
Thank you. That synopsis of my daughters story has helped a lot of people over the years and I liked your description of the Hangman’s Fracture too. Its nice to hear from a Chiropractor who understands the true philosophy of what Chiropractic does. I agree that most DC’s don’t understand the basic premise of a disruption to normal/optimal function. In fact when I refer people now that I meet, I have trouble finding a Chiropractor in my area who can understand this. Its such a shame that the majority have succumb to treating pain when their service is worthy of so much more. I hope you run a very busy practice drtch, your understanding of the Chiropractic message is certainly an imperative one for this field.
I am allergic to everything–all medicines, numerous foods, pet dander, trees, grasses, etc. (about 150 total). I have been going to chiropractors for 27 yrs. and have never had one help my allergies. So what did yours do to help you? Thanks.

peter rastall says
I went to a chiropractor for treatment on my neck after an accident but on filling the initial health check forms I was told I could not be treated as I had prostate cancer
I have done half a year treatment with a Chinese clinic. The doctor has given me acupuncture in order to recover my blindness on the left eye. To this treatment he gives me massage specially on my neck, but other parts as well. I was obliged to keep a pause because it became so expensive. But I want to continue this treatment in the Autumn. To fight against the risk of getting cancer I received a mixture of herbs to be taken everyday. Because I´m in the age of getting illnesses, and the breastcancer my cousin in Stockholm got, scares me.
Due to my positive experience of the Chinese clinic I recommended my cousin, who now is in for radiation, to contact a Chinese clinic in Stockholm. She phoned the clinic, and got the answer, that the only treatment is the ordinary cancer treatment. Anything else is against the law. The hospitals in Sweden are very human, but they have to follow the official instructions. My cousin has done the radiation a week, but has 5 more weeks to go. She feels that she is getting burned where they radiate her, so she wanted something to release the pain. The Chemistry had only perfumed salve. She cannot meet with her grandchildren due to their possible infections.
If we want to change this, we have to get understanding from the authorities. We need professionals to support us in this horrible illness.
My wife lost use of her hand due to the Carpal canal problem. A famous surgeon specializing on this area recommended urgent operation expecting up to 70% of recovery of the full function. The surgeon described a Chiropractic Therapy as useless. However, after 10 sessions my wife regained full function of her hand.

I enjoyed reading the various reports on peoples experience with chiropractors. I have been a practicing chiropractor for 35 years. I have seen thousands of patients and have witnessed miracles everyday of my practice. I consider my job as a chiropractor is to teach people how to take care of themselves. The bottom line is each of us is responsible for our own healthcare and well being. The western model of disease management has warped peoples sense ability. People expect to be cured in one visit after leading a life of abuse in many different forms. Lack of exercise, eating non real foodstuffs, taking drugs to kill pain, getting vaccinations , watching TV for hours, sitting at a laptop computer 8 hours a day, texting on there cell phones with there head bent forward,etc. Healing can take time, changing habits does not happen overnight. Yes, there are many variations of chiropractors but the same goes for any profession. Ask your friends for referrals and use your common sense, trust your intuition. Medical care kills 400,000 people a year from drug usage to surgeries gone bad but very few people die from chiropractic care.
Yes! I am a firm believer in chiropractic care.
I see a functional chiropractor . He is amazing . My body is healing , my immune system is functioning significantly better. Not all Chiro Drs jerk and pop you.
There are many who do applied kinesiology and work with your body .
They are definitely worth your time .
Is there an help for Stenosis of the spine?
Carmen & Jim Strating says
Before going to a chiropractor check Pete Egoscue, he is a posture therapy doctor and has clinic all over the US just about , a revolutionary method to stop chronic pain. I have his book “Pain free”.

Lynda — Your feedback is very helpful. My husband who is 36 recently learned from our family practioner that he is definitely a scoliosis case. Which, somehow, was never determined earlier. He has complained of back pain since we started dating at age 20. He always chalked it up to football injuries but now that we’ve learned about a history of scoliosis I wish he would go see someone! He spent years going to doctors and has never received any helpful treatment or information. Most told him to “do situps” and improve his core. Although, I’m sure that helps, it is not a solution. He can barely get out of bed each day. I keep insisting he go to someone but he completely refuses. In the past few years I have learned about “Functional Medicine” and have GREATLY improved my knowledge of health and the immune system. I have gained incredible assistance through such a doctor and she has a chiro on her staff. I have never been to one but have considered going myself recently (3 pregnancies have taken a toll!). I am thinking a FM Chiropractor would be the way to go. Glad to hear positive feedback on the profession.
Robert Clemons says
Is there any chance that someone knows of a good Chiro in Washington State. ? ? firstname.lastname@example.org
I went to a chiropractor in my early twenties first time with having back pain the chiropractor align my spine and he did some fancy trick with my hips I walked out of there feeling Young her than I was feeling great no pain I think chiropractors are the best I would recommend a chiropractor they do wonders
Jocelyn Church says
I work with students on the autism spectrum and with ADHD and had not heard the claim that Chiropractic care helped with these symptoms (many families I work with use chiropractic care for overall health but not specifically to treat the ADHD/AUtism) Due to my interest I immediately checked out the study that was listed in the reference and this was the conclusion from the research “The current finding for this systematic review has been classified as an ’empty review’. As a result, to date there is no high quality evidence to evaluate the efficacy of chiropractic care for paediatric and adolescent AD/HD. The claims made by chiropractors that chiropractic care improves AD/HD symptomatology for young people is only supported by low levels of scientific evidence. In the interest of paediatric and adolescent health, if chiropractic care is to continue for this clinical population, more rigorous scientific research needs to be undertaken to examine the efficacy and effectiveness of chiropractic treatment for AD/HD. Adequately-sized RCTs using clinically relevant outcomes and standardized measures to examine the effectiveness of chiropractic care verses no-treatment/placebo control or standard care (pharmacological and psychosocial care) are needed to determine whether chiropractic care is an effective alternative intervention for paediatric and adolescent AD/HD.” I think it is irresponsible to say that Chiropractic care helps students with Learning disabilities!!! I’m not saying there aren’t benefits but families are desperate to help their children and many would take any glimmer of hope and immediately follow it. If there is additional research that I didn’t see please let me know otherwise I feel you should remove #8 from the list!!!!!!

It would be nice if TTAC would do an informational piece on Osteopathy . Osteopathic physicians have 11 years of post high school training. Seven years in medical training. There are a few osteopathic physicians who specialize in traditional osteopathic manipulation and philosophy. I am certified in family practice as well as osteopathic manipulation. As with all medical providers one must do their homework before you have any type of treatment including chiropractic performed. There are risks and benefits for all medical procedures and these should be fully explained prior to any procedure done on a patient.
Well said, Kelly. I’m living proof that staying healthy this way is better than trying to cure a condition. Gave up professional mani/pedi’s to afford 1-2 monthly treatments. What good are fancy nails when we are cripping along?
Why do you assume you will have to go through a lot of bad chiropractors? Have you gone through a lot of bad doctors? Everyone has a different situation, so read this article again and don’t fall for that once popular attitude of old-timers and the uninformed, – “Oh, chiropractors are quacks.” My chiropractor not only helped me physically, but he had a lot of good suggestions. And he was of Korean decent, so he had the best of both worlds – Asian and American – to rely on!
Sometimes I think we get lucky to find someone very good, who actually cares, and helps us. However, yes, I’ve gone through many bad medical doctors as well. I’ve had a lot of surgeries, and several where to “fix” what another surgeon messed up. It doesn’t matter, Dentist, Chiropractor, Holistic practitioner, Medical physician, or massage therapist. My mom almost died when a pharmacist filled her prescription wrong. We’re human, and make mistakes. Yes there is someone who graduated last as well as first in their class. I’d prefer to find those who graduated top of class. Some are into pushing patients through, more patients means more income to them. Some will write prescriptions for anything rather than figure out what’s really wrong. Were we live, they can’t treat my husband’s cancer, and the Dr literally told us “get the hell out of the state” and agreed that Huntsman Cancer Institute was the best choice for us. As for Chiropractors, yes, they have their purpose and can do good. However, as anyone, they should look at the whole picture, he should have referred my husband to his own medical doctor long before, rather than continuing to adjust what couldn’t have been fixed chiropractic-ally, because it was cancer. I have a fear of Dentists, but I still go & still get my teeth cleaned & things fixed. What I was trying to explain (comment below this), is if it’s not working for US, if we’re not comfortable with the person or method, to look elsewhere. Do what’s best for you, not because everyone else says to do this or that.
My husband had pain in his lower back and leg, sciatic, went to a chiropractor several times, no results or relief. Went to his medical Dr, who found he had stage 4 kidney cancer. I went to a D.O. who was also a licensed chiropractor, and she told me, that she won’t practice manipulation, she wouldn’t go to a chiropractor herself. That the adjustment of your bones and joints is hard on the body, and there are safer better methods to consider. She’s worked on me several times for different things, and I leave without pain, no continued problem. The chiropractors in the past, and I’ve tried several, seem to need you to return repeatedly, and I always leave hurting more than when I came in. I think as with most things, it’s what we believe in, as well as finding the best you can in the field. I’ve been to good and not so good massage therapists as well, yet I strongly believe in massage. I feared acupuncture until I finally tried it, it worked, and I’m a believer. However, there too, I found one who was very good, and another who did a horrible job in my opinion. Always seek the best through referrals, and if you don’t like them, try another. Research methods of healing, to make informed educated choices that is best for you and your family. Don’t fall for any marketing hype, anyone good at marketing could sell you any crap to believe it will cure-all. Look for 3rd party independent research studies. Look for companies with Integrity. Look for products supported by people with impressive founded credentials. Don’t fall for a good marketing tactic. And if it doesn’t work for you, look somewhere else. If we had stayed with the chiropractor as he’d suggested multiple times would be needed… my husband would have been gone already from this cancer.
Please, what are mani/pedi’s? Pediatricians and ______?
drtch Manicure and pedicure. Money is much better spent on good chiropractic care than pretty appendages.
Take care that you get a good well trained chiropractor, and if you have as I do, multiple myloma, with 8 spinal compression fractures, then you need, as I do, treatment from a chiropractor who uses kinesiology .It works wonders and puts no pressure on the bones but achieves the same results.
Yes its all very subjective and difficult to find the Chiropractors who specialize specifically in Correction. The practices I worked in, both used a business model called WLP – Waiting List Practice. CJ Mertz is the founder. I did seminars with him all over the country and he is amazing. Using his model of business, I saw incredible results that just inspired me further into how effective Chiropractic is. You can find more information on it here: http://teamwlp.com/
Maybe you can contact them directly and ask if there are any WLP Chiropractors in your area. Not all WLP Chiro’s practice CBP (Chiropractic Biophysics) though. The reason I give this technique my endorsement, is because it’s a global technique not subluxation based. It focuses on the whole spinal alignment rather than just single misalignments. The most effective practices I found, always use either x-rays or Tomography so maybe this is something you can check when you call offices too.
Be careful around the electromagnetic frequencies from computers and wireless technology in particular, as it causes so much stress on the body, it will pull the spine out of alignment through inflammation. If your elbows and wrists are a problem, this could be happening. Good luck LisaC, I hope you can find an amazing Chiropractor.
Colleen Foster says
Lynda Sykes, I agree totally with all you said. Chiropractors are brilliant, but you do have to find the right one for your issue. There are many different techniques used by chiropractors and they do not all treat in the same way. But generally chiropractors rock!!
JaNein M Aly says
Dr John Bergman has several YouTube videos and one that explains how to find the right chiropractor…
Best Therapie , I ever had. Depending on the chiropractor!
Lucy Chen says
I’ve started seeing a chiropractor two weeks ago, finally treating my chronic shoulder problem.
Jens Charles says
Can you send me his info?
JaNein M Aly says
Hopefully looking for one that is a Healing chiropractor, must take xrays before treatment and will take xrays after treatment. Will also discuss your nutrition! Your Gut is where most diseases stem from…

For months I had a burning pain in my upper back, it was so bad I was hard to live with, so hard my wife couldn’t stand my complaining and told me she couldn’t be around me any longer and I got out of the car and she left leaving me at a small town in Nevada. My two small children cried and soon she came back. I got in but the pain continued. I went to work as a logger and finally the pain was so intolerable I decided to see a chiropractor, though I thought they were quacks. It was desperation and since doctors only recommended pills, which I hated I thought I’d do anything figuring it would do no good I saw one in Aberdeen, WA. He took an X-ray and soon came back with it and said, “I can fix your problem. He said my head was out of line with my neck bones, or something like that, this was forty years ago. I don’t remember if I stood up, laid down, sat down or what, but he manipulated my head and there was all kind of cracking sounds. I worried he’d broken my neck. Then he said something like, “There, you’re as good a new, you won’t need to see me again.” The pain never came back and I never saw him again but I’m eternally thankful. Thanks, doc, I wished I’d called him and told him so.
Jens Charles says
Good happy for you.can you forward me his info? I could really use a good one.
I seen The John Stockton part from a video about how the AMA propaganda was trying to destroy chiropratic medicine. The fact Stockton sprained his ankle at the end of the 3rd quarter, and actually was back in the game is incredible!

I’ve been to chiropractors many times in my life when my back was out and the treatment definitely helped. However, I am now 64 years old. I recently had 4 treatments and it didn’t help at all. The thing is it’s in the lower back to the left and only comes when I’m tired either from working in the garden or late evening.
Lynn Adams says
I love chiropractic care; I hate taking medicine. My chiropractor “cured” me from the “bronchitis” my MD said I had. Another time I fell down some concrete steps and tore the skin down to the bone on three fingers. My holistic chiropractor treated those with a salve and daily laser treatments. They healed rapidly with no scarring whatsoever. He also cleared up “carpal tunnel syndrome” on which another MD wanted to operate! Same went for when I injured my shoulder. So now I go to my chiropractor first; and only go to an MD if he says I need one. That said, not all chiropractors are well versed in homeopathy, kinesiology, or nutrition. (Or Chinese herbs for that matter)
Coral Vorster says
I recommend chiropractic treatment 100% above any other treatment or MD. If only i had listened to my chiropractor 5 years ago when i had an unnecessary back operation when advised not to have by my chiropractor. Due to pressure from my children i, under duress, agreed to have the operation. It was totally unnecessary as the orthopedic surgeon who operated was arrogant and had an attitude. My biopsis was ‘negative’. NOW. i only listen to my wonderful chiropractor who has restored my health.
Bob Pike says
It is interesting and vital to note after this reply my Marcus Dunn that there is no such thing as “chiropractic therapy”. The intent of chiropractic adjustment is quite simply to optimize the transmissions between the brain and body’s cells and systems. The almost irresistable urge to put all health care into the medical therapeutic BOX is largly due to amnesia caused by relentless pharmaceurical advertising. Another way to see this is that every living thing needs to be tuned up periodically in order to perform its true tole in the orchestra that is LIFE EXPRESSION. I trust that I have been clear on this essential distinction between the business of symptom therapies and chiropractic adustments of neurological implications of spinal sublusation. The further distinction I will make here is that the whole point of chiropractic adjustment is the optimization of brain-body communication and not only the physical manipulation of somatic dysfunction advocated by Osteopaths. VSC (vertebral sybluxation complex) embodies the disorders of somatic dyskinesia, autonomic dysponesis and the psychosomatic realms of brain/heart interaction we might know as empathy. There is a fundamen or feduciary duty implicit in the hunan state to always remain in identify with the Source of what we are as human Being.
Ellie Davis says
I didn’t know that chiropractic procedures can help treat underlying health problems. This seems like an important thing to remember when you are considering going to a chiropractor. My mother has been experiencing severe back pain and I think a chiropractor could really help her. I’ll have to do some research and find the right one for her.
Millie Hue says
It got me when you said that chiropractic therapy can help with the pain management. My favorite part is when you talked about how it reduces a headache by removing the stiffness in the back and the strain in the spine. With that in mind, I will be visiting a chiropractic facility this weekend because I have been having headaches almost every day, and it is already affecting my status at work since I cannot meet the deadlines. Thanks!
Tammy Houston says
I appreciate it when you said that among the benefits of chiropractic care is the idea that it reduces the person’s asthma symptoms and thus decrease their need for medication. If that is the case, then I think it is a good idea to let my brother try chiropractic care. After all, he has been an asthmatic all his life, and there are times when he is no longer responding to his medication. Maybe this will help.
Olivia Pearson says
I appreciate how you mentioned that low back pain affects more than 10% of the global population, and that chiropractic care is a low cost method of providing pain relief. My friend was recently injured in a car accident, and has sustained chronic pain all through her back that is inhibiting the performance of her daily activities. I’ll have to recommend that she find an auto injury expert in her area that can provide the chiropractic treatment she needs to find pain relief.
Ridley Fitzgerald says
It’s great to know the benefits of chiropractic therapy. I like how you said that it helps pregnant women get rid of the pain that the weight causes. My wife is pregnant with our first child, and her hips and back are really sore. I’ll suggest that she go to a chiropractor.

Ellie Davis says
I didn’t know that chiropractors could help with headaches. My husband has been having pretty severe headaches for a few weeks and I think he should try a chiropractor. I’ll have to do some research and find the best chiropractor in the area.
Sariah Meagle says
I never thought that visiting a chiropractor could help me in my hobby because you said that they can help elevate sports performance. Since you also pointed out that they can help reduce headaches, I’ll make sure to visit one regularly. If they can stimulate the immune system as you claim, a regular appointment with the right chiropractor could possibly make me healthier.

I believe in chiropractors, they do a wonderful job most of the time, my husband had an accident at work and went to hospital where they had him lie on his back without moving for 6 weeks and when they finally said he could get out of bed he couldn’t walk and they called psychiatrists in and they said it was a psychological problem and it was all in his head so I took him to a chiropractor and he went in hunched over on two walking sticks and came out walking straight and without the sticks as all he had was a pinched nerve in his back.
Customer Support says
Wow – that’s amazing!
Thanks for sharing this with us. Catherine.
God bless you and your husband!
