Does anyone have any luck with a chiropractor?
I am in major pain.  It started in my left shoulder blade.
I think maybe I overcompensated for the pain and now my
whole back is in knots.  I am wondering if a chiropractor might help.
Or if this is all fibro and I just need to buck up and get use to it.

I personally do go to a chirpractor on a regular basis and it does seem to help me for the most part.

I have lots of headaches, neck and shoulder pain.
When I go I get a slight relief and the feeling in my neck isn't so bad.
And then I might not have to take as many aleve to help the discomfort.

I know that chiropraters can help at times, he might be able to get the knots out of your back, as far as the shoulder I have found that if it is a fibro problem there is not a lot that a chiropractor can do. At least not for me they couldn't. I will be praying that you get relief soon.

It took me about 8 years and 4 chiro's plus a good bit of money but finally found a "good" one that does give me some relief

I have gone to the same chiropractic group for years. I don't go regularly, but just when I feel as if it's necessary. I do get some relief from it. Just be very careful, as some of them will try to get you to sign contracts for a certain number of visits within a certain time frame. These are the ones that give chiropracters a bad name. It is also important to find one that asks questions about your pain and really listens to what you are saying. The one that I go to asks about the pain, what I feel is causing it, how long I have had it, is it related to an accident (he already knows that I have usually tripped, lol), what I have done on my own to try to relieve it, etc.
