I too could use some advice on this.
My chiropractor got my neck better (stiffness relief and mobility improvement) after a rear-end car collision. It took about 2 months, 20 treatments of cracking and bending - classical chiropractic style.
Fast forward 4 years, I got an invite to a presentation of new services from the same Doc. He started this new thing called Network Spinal Analysis, gentle touching and stimulating of the spine and deep breathing approach.
After 10 ‘Entrainments’ I’ve concluded that this new treatment sucked. It didn’t make any difference other that have me breathe deeper and fall asleep on the table. (I’ve no problems with falling asleep). This is way too fu-fu for me. Sadly it’s all he does now.
During the initial assessments the doc aligned my two feet and pointed out one shorter that the other. Next he shifted a bone where head and neck meet. He aligned both feet again and presto! both even. Second time around, four years later he tries the same stunt and I shift the bone my self, he was not amused and said it could be dangerous.
The doc is a great guy, very fit for a 55+ year old, i.e. swims and looks it great shape. He’s also got three sons and a daughter, all of whom are practicing chiropractors both. This looks like a great business to be in, but I’m a very skeptical guy hence would like T-Nations thoughts?
Is chiropractic a science or a just snake oil medicine?
