Real Estate, etc... by Eric Michael: Chiropractors. Good, Bad or Indifferent?

Chiropractors. Good, Bad or Indifferent?

Chiropractors. Good, Bad or Indifferent?

I went to a birthday party today. A friend of mines son turned 2.

There was someone there that I was introduced to that I really didn't know what to think.

She's a Doctor. Actually a Chiropractor. She just opened her business about 9 months ago, I'm told.


Here's my question...

Are Chiropractors "real" doctors?

Before ripping my head off, let me explain.

My mom took me to a Chiropractor when I was 8 or 9. He told me to lay on the table and relax. He slowly moved my head back and forth then *CRACK*

He twisted my head, cracking my neck. Scared the crap outta me!

Since then, I've always heard that Chiropractors are just "snake oil" salesmen that couldn't pass the schooling to be a "real" doctor.

Now, I'm not knocking them, I just want your opinion.

What do you think of Chiropractors?

I'm thinking about taking her up on her offer of a free "adjustment."

I have to go or should as well as any one should to get frequent adjustments. We all walk around out of alignment, but to be in perfect alignment, never felt better. I recommend the practice, if you really knew how vital it is to your health. No drug with help you neck or spine if it is not in the proper place.

Besides don't you do the same thing to your car's steering and front end?

I went for several months, probably close to full year to get my back corrected. Haven't had the problem for about 3 years, although it seems to be returning, so might be time for a return visit.

Eric- we have a Chiropractor in a networking group I'm in and she seems to be very good.  I've had friends that have gone and love it and the results.

Hi Eric, I'm suspecting that Chiropractors have a whole lot more schooling than many Realtors have! I've never been to one - b/c the cracking would scare the crap out of me.. on the other hand I have a few friends who swear by it. It might be time to give it a try ...

My husband is asleep already .. he's in the Navy Nurse Corps, it would be interesting to get his opinion!

Eric, Chiropractors do have a lot of education behind them and some are Doctors, but not all.  I think they are in some way regulated by the world health organization.  I've used one in the past, but he was only able to help partially...many people swear by them and I'd certainly consider one before surgery.
