        yes

        >Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine[1] concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially of the spine.[2] It has esoteric origins[3] and is based on several pseudoscientific ideas.

        >Numerous controlled clinical studies of treatments used by chiropractors have been conducted, with varied results.[8] There is no conclusive evidence that chiropractic manipulative treatment is effective for the treatment of any medical condition, except perhaps for certain kinds of back pain.

      Yes.
      Chiropractic was invented by a Canadian (red flag) who claimed to cure deafness with a spinal adjustment
      They have no actual underlying mechanism of therapy. It's a bunch of chicanery. Read their textbooks and you will see.

      >Retards who never went to chiro

      I visit chiro any time I have back or joint pain that’s not resolving on own. The adjustments are meh but they teach physical therapy as well. Most drs will either do nothing or give you a cortisone injection which ruins joints.
      There are bad and good ones. Start calling around.

      >Actual good advice
      Chiropractors can give you a good idea on how to fix your posture and even offer physiotherapy but the "massage" stuff they do will be only temporary relief. To actually fix posture and other problems you will either have to do some weird gay yoga moves for a few months.

        I didnt follow up my either because im retarded.
        Either you yoga to fix or you learn that the problem is some unfixable thing and learn to cope with it. Wish you the best outcome OP

      You're paying chiropractic prices for physio. You're a fucking clown.
      Most doctors will point you to a physio. In Florida they will give you opiates.

        At worst you’re out time and expense for 1 visit. It’s the sort of thing that either works immediately or doesn’t.

          You're using up your maximum allowable benefits at an extraordinary rate.
          Unless you have some magic insurance that has unlimited physio/chiro, which I don't even think extremely prestigious law firms will offer, you're throwing money in the hole.

            Going in 4 times to resolve a shoulder issue is a world apart from weekly visits for backrubs. If I knew a good PT I’d do that but the only one I know is at the chiro office.

    I hurt my back and could barely get out of bed for weeks, I went to a $20 chiropractor and they literally fixed my back and I was good as new the next day

    It'd insane how much hate they get in the USA, its almost like "they" fear them because they won't have you hooked up on pills for the rest of your life. Literally every culture around the world practices chiropractic healing

      They get a bad rap bc AMA shittalks them constantly and chiro practice is super inconsistent. Of course so are drs but they get a pass.

    The foot thing is podiatrist. If your pronation is fucked that’s the guy to visit.

    Chiropractors are huge fucking frauds. Look up the history. It’s basically voodoo. You have anterior pelvic tilt and correcting it is a fucking nightmare. Do a ton of core/ab work while maintaining posterior pelvic tilt and strengthen your glutes/hamstrings

    They are a scam. They don't help and might even give you some disabling injury because they don't know what the fuck they're doing.

          No, I don't have pain except my leg from which I believe is sciatica, I haven't been to a physical or any shit like that so I don't want to get garden gnomeed here. the pelvic tilt shit is what i'm going for though, as well as my feet aren't straight when I walk. I have a full gym in my apartment building with cycles and full equipment should i just hit that shit aswell? the garden gnometubers i cannot trust and don't know who to believe
