How often do you get your back adjusted?
 
I should be going to chiro a lot more often for this because even doing it once a year will really help down the road when you get older. My chiropractor says you should be getting it done at least once a year, twos better. I know when I have had it adjusted in the past, you feel so much better right after. Sometimes i mess up my back and parts of it will get really stiff and no matter what scretching excersizes I try, hot or cold packs, it doesnt compare to a professional.

Chiropractors are liars and conmen.

You don't say? They just want your money.

Janks 01-25-2013 01:36 PM

Never

Shrimper 01-25-2013 01:37 PM

Never. Not old.

Buy yourself an inversion table. They are worth every dollar that you pay. You can buy a quality table for around $250 or so. Seems like a lot of money but it is well worth it. It will decompress your spine, and increase blood circulation. All it takes is 5 minutes a day on the table.

I go once a week now, went 3x when I started at current chiropractor.

I'm old, but I'm not that old.

1-2 times per week. Definitely a big difference if you are really active.

Not since a dated a girl who's step dad is a chiropractor. Kinda miss it to be honest, always feel relaxed after A good adjustment.

Used to go every three weeks or so for about a year. Truthfully didn't even know chiropractors had their own ideas of science behind their craft. Basically thought it was similar to going to a PT or getting a massage or something, because my chiropractor never really tried to convince me of subluxations or anything like that. It just felt good to go, and because of my job at the time was a needed relief. Once I read up on their beliefs, and the scary stories of adjustments to the neck I stopped going. It's probably been closer to 5 years or so since I have been, but I do have to admit I miss the "cracking" of my back once in a while.

i used to get it done 4 to 8 times a month, I have scoliosis that curved my spine more than it should be. I was told if I went there, I could correct the problem slightly and prevent it from worsening/bones from fusing.That was back when the chiropractor initially charged me a student fee of $7/visit, later it went to $20/visit(so I made less visits) and they ran weird hours, but at least he made special times when I could come in. Then a new guy took over. They only operate 16 hours a week(Every weekday morning, 8-11, except Friday which is 8-12 and Tuesday and Thursday 3-6), and the fee has hit $42,oh and the goverment won't even cover any of it like they used to(my insurance covers $250, that's less than 9 visits) and it takes him only about 2 minutes to "adjust me". I figure those little spine bones just pop right back out anyways. I should go again once a month because my insurance does cover much of that at least.

*edit* just realized that at only once a month, I am looking at $500/year, only $250 of which is covered. That doesn't even include the yearly consult exam and x-rays at $120. Oh, and they usually want you at twice a month :P

Never.

used to get it done on a weekly basis along with my neck after I got hit by a drunk driver a few years back. Now, maybe once ever 4-6 months if that. They're fantastic... you just don't need them that often.

WhipNash27 01-26-2013 09:58 AM

I could go for a legit massage right now, but never been or plan on going to a chiropractor.

DKQ 01-26-2013 10:29 AM

Did chiro when I was rehabbing an injury from soccer, was the best thing ever. Too poor (and young) to do it regularly though

TheGooooch 01-26-2013 10:55 AM

Not enough
