bone manipulation
hi I am a woman aged 60 yrs and have had chiro treatment over the years however when i suffer from pinched nerves my husband lifts me gently under the arms and allows my weight to free the pinched nerve which gives relief. is this practice safe at age 60 as my wife also has a little oestio problem as well.

A very gentle lift should not create a problem - but it is advisable to rather consult your chiropractor about this as he/she is more familiar with your personal condition and case history.
