Advice & Tips: I've been going to a chiropractor since Dec. 1993. I go as long as I can between appts (sometimes 1 week, sometimes 4 weeks), but usually walk in to his office in major, almost unbearable pain. I always get immediate relief, but might be in pain for a short time from the adjustments.

Advice & Tips: Presently my chiropractor is doing very specialized work as a part of my adjustments. While she does adjust my vertebrae, she also makes cerebro-sacral adjustments and cranial adjustments where, surprisingly, she gets the most results. Her work is amazing and I feel a real improvement afterward!
