Chiropractor = cheating con artist in my experience
My experience in the USA with so called Chiropractors is that they want you to sign up for a course of treatments in order to get better. For example one I visited said that I would need at least 2 visits per week for 4 years but he would really recommend 5 visits per week and at times multiple visits per day otherwise I would never get better.
I know a few things about the human body and about physical therapy. It is much like getting beaten up. You come out of it having been twisted and turned, prodded and kneaded and it can at times feel like you have been run over a day or so afterwards.
So why would you even consider multiple visits per day?? Or even 5 treatments per week? Even 2 at times can be far too traumatic on the human body.
I have a lot of experience with various physiotherapy - shiatsu, seitai, acupuncture, hospital physiotherapy, chiropractor, osteopath, sports therapists.
Chiropractors in my opinion just plan do not understand the human body as much as other therapists do. They spill a lot of nonsensical garbage to make themselves sound intelligent. The proof is in the pudding and with chiropractic treatments it makes little or no difference, coupled with the scamming methods to get you to sign up for courses that are as much as a mortgage payment.
I would never use a Chiropractor again.
If you can find a decent Seitai therapist, that has shiatsu experience also then you will delighted with the outcome.
I have had a lot of treatments for various injuries from a Seitai practitioner who also used to be a fighter and is currently a fight coach also, so he knows a lot about to break a human body, how to train a human body to be extremely fit and I found this to be far far far superior to any Chiropractor out there by a LONG shot. He had real practical hands on knowledge. Not just some spill from a so called journal.
Other than that a decent proper physical therapist with proper experience is your best bet.
Leave those Chiropractors well alone in my opinion, unless you like losing a lot of money.There are rotten apples in every barrel, Bob, and you came up against one of the worst, so I can't blame you for sounding off.
My regimen for chronic conditions is
* Treatment phase: 2 times a week for 3 to 4 weeks.
* Rehabilitation phase: Perhaps another half a dozen treatments over 6 weeks.
* An occasional, regular treatment, perhaps once in six weeks.
That would amount to a maximum of 20 treatments in the first year. Rather different to what you experienced.
Anyway, I'm glad you've found someone you're happy with. That's great.
Thank you for your comment, I value it, so will the readers. Watch out for the sharks!
