OK Tina. I didn't mean to come across as "The Angry Chiropractor". I was just trying to help. I wish you luck in finding a resolution to your pain.

Dana, what are talking about? I wasn't starting a fight and said nothing to start a fight. Sounds like you are trying to start a fight by making such comments.

Tina, what are you paying out of pocket to see an orthopedist and physical therapy per visit?

I understand the "I can't afford it". Chiropractic care is cheaper than PT and or surgery. He really won't be able to afford it when his condition progresses to the point where he can no longer work. No, I have not read the Rebuild Book and have no desire to. I know what works through my own experie...

Here is my opinion. The Ortho is going to wait and wait and push you through treatment that doesn’t work and he will keep pumping you up on drugs until you have no other choice other than to have surgery. Here is what you need to do. You need to see a chiropractor. A chiropractor is your only option...

I have no research on hand to back up my assertion. If you have research to contradict what I have said I'm happy to have a look at it. It is a fact that it is humanly impossible for someone to voluntarily bring their range of motion beyond active range on their own. I never said that chiropractic c...

Looks like you had an MRI. You have some nerve compression secondary to disc protrusion. I bet you are feeling some pain down the legs. I cannot comment on the book but it looks as though it has helped quite a few people. Have you gone to a chiropractor? Preferably one who practices "Cox" flexion/di...

Randolph, I understand your point of view with regard to the stretching. The thing is people are only capable of stretching an area through its active range of motion. There is a limit of voluntary motion. Joint motion has a few different levels. Beyond active is passive range of motion and then the...

It doesn't sound to me that the chiropractor that Steve saw was of the "straight variety". Where does Steve mention anything about his chiropractor saying anything about subluxations? Let me clarify a few things, stretching helps when a patient has a sprain strain. If anyone understands the healing ...

A short leg that only is a few mm is not a concern. The method of analyzing a short leg (other than an x-ray) is very subjective and unreliable. That is why we use of x-rays with the patient standing to analyze the problem. Had a patient go to the ER for back pain, they shot films and the Radiologis...

Hugo , Thanks for the information. Interesting to get a Chiro perspective on things as I've only had Doctors and Physio's perspectives , I think a balanced opinion is always the best to determine any course of action . Degenerative arthritis , I'm not familiar with that at all , Arthritis , yes tha...

SeafordMdf, thank you for the warm reply. I understand where you are coming from with regard to chiropractic treatments and the need for monthly or bimonthly care. Let me try to make this understandable. Many of the patients that end up in a chiropractor's office have degenerative arthritis for whic...

I really do not understand the medical doctor's point of view with regard to chiropractors. Yes, he is right in saying that he could possibly be sued if the chiropractor commits malpractice. Chiropractor's malpractice rates are lower than any other doctor due to the fact that treatments are very saf...

Yea, only 98% of chiropractors are "bad".....so don't judge the other 2% so harshly.... The better the chiropractor is, the more he has deviated away from anything that is uniquely chiropractic. As the saying goes: Q: "What do you call an evidence based chiropractor?" A: " A physical therapist". As...

Don't you think the same thing could be said for chiropractors?
