Alcie I understand where you are coming from on this guy. The one thing you will find with chiropractic care is they have a routine for patients that most cannot afford, like you said come in three times a week and do exercises that you can do at home. This is so typical of them. Over weeks end they gradually reduce the visits but keep in mind most health insurance companies limit your visits and some will only pay for 10 visits. When I worked I dealt with a lot of these guys begging for business wanting to treat people that were in car accidents. For what they ran up in medical bills the person could have paid for a full blown surgery, lol. This is why ins companies limit them and why they do not care for them. There are some good ones out there I am sure, but with what you are describing as your problems the last thing you need is someone popping you. I have seen people be injured by chiropractic care before. Chiropractic care is not for everyone. They all say we have one leg longer than the other, one hip rides up higher than the other, blag, blah, blah. Tell me how they can tell you, that you need 35 treatments to get you better, lol. I do want to ask you if anyone has tried you on a steroid pack, like Medrol Dosepack? My siser had horrible sciatica from a pinched nerve, she got sick wioth pneumonia and did a round of Medrol Dosepack, she woke up one morning about
3 days into the medicine and her pain was gone. She was just floored because nothinghad worked for her, including the $15,000 the chiropractor charged her. Now when the pain comes back she does a round of the steroid andcalms it back down. I do know many drs will use this so its something you may want to consider. Good luck.
