    ^^^ This. ^^^ The profession is by and large quackery and has no basis in medical science. There have been a fair number of cases of strokes being caused by dangerous chiropractic manipulations. People are better off getting a massage.

    I do understand that some feel better after seeing a chiro but people feel better after getting a massage too.

    I've been seeing my chiropractor for about 9-10 months now and have noticed a big difference in how I feel. I feel less stiff and I don't wake up stiff. I would high recommend seeing a chiropractor.
    C-5, 6 SCI. Took about 6 months to walk. Walking full time. Without any assistance since Nov. 2003 and will make a full recovery

    I also would be cautious seeing one. The right massage therapist might be a better option.
