4 years of chiropractic treatment
i have been going to the chiroprctor once a month for 4 years now. At fisrt the problem was me pelvic area, then it was my lower back and now the pinch nerve keeps moving from a few month in the neck to a few months to my lower back down to my knee. My chiropractor says that once he "fixes" the one side it affects the other and will come right someday but i shoud continue with my monthly "adjustments". He say it is caused by tension and stress that is stored around the muscles of my spine. His adjustments does help alot but when it comes to a week before my next adjustment the symtoms come back again...should i go to a different chiro? Stress and Tension is something that i'll always have to deal with - should i rather just continue seeing him once a month? I did go to another chiro 1 year before this one and he used a more forceful method of adjustment that lasted longer...i only went every 3 months - what is the differnce in methods?
