Do chiropractor Fake?

Anytime I go to a chiropractor he does 5min of adjustments and set a next appointment to do the same. I do get some relief but always doubt if they just want dont want to fix everything at once but in small installments just to keep bringing in the client?

    Chiropractic is BS. They think that spinal adjustment can cure your immune system. A physical therapist is a Chiropractor who believes in science and went to med school.

      To be fair PTs don't have to go to med school, but they do go to PT school.

      To be fair physios do 2 years less schooling than chiros

      Edit: also if you re going to someone who says they can "cure you" there s obviously something wrong no matter the profession

      There are lots of "chiropractors" who are just uncertified masseuses. The distinction is murky, especially when their practice has hippie dippy marketing.

    Trust a chiropractor less than a car mechanic!

    The right thing to do is to adjust your expectations and have some idea about what you're trying to accomplish. In other words, you should trust any doctor or anyone for that matter who provides you any service only to a certain degree.

    Doctors are are just like developers, some are good, some are attrocious and most are somewhere in between but all get paid to provide services. what you should do is be knowledgeable enough not to be taken for a ride.

      Chiropractors are not doctors.

      I think you missed the point. Try to focus.

      I tried.. and I failed. In your language, someone asked you about QAs and you ended up comparing them to SWEs.

    I had a similar experience and wasted tons of time and money on them. I basically resolved my own problems by using a foam roller and doing mobility work that I found online.

    I went to a great chiropractor once but would never do it again. The guy was very knowledgeable, had an MD degree, but the feeling of man full of muscle (he was like a professional bodybuilder just wearing pants and a sweater) applying all his strength and body weight on my spine while it cracked like a stack of dominos was deeply disturbing. It didn't help when I said "I bet you can break anybody's neck as easy as you break a cookie". He adjusted his glasses and said "Actually, it's not as easy as they show it in the movies. Of course I can beat the average Rambo in a neck breaking contest, but there are easier ways to kill somebody with your bare hands"

    Drastic adjustment is probably not a good idea for some cases. For example it took months and years for teeth alignment.

      Depends on the area and symptoms, high velocity low amplitude manipulation of joints can be incredibly effective when applied correctly. Joints aren’t teeth, the two aren’t valid comparisons.

    Chiro’s aren’t doctors. They use a bunch of questionable techniques and are renowned for adjusting things for the sake of it. If you want proper work, go and see a surgically trained osteopath

    You just need to find a good chiropractor. Mine incorporates adjustments, rehab, massage, and even medical (PA on staff) into a personalized plan to address your issues. Having gone to school for physical therapy i was very skeptical initially, but not anymore.

    Chiropractic helps but then again it’s not a silver bullet to your health issue. Gotta take a holistic approach; fascia release or Rolfing, regular stretching, invest in personal training, and maintain good postures.

    That’s true with any BS doctors. They look at you as a subscription customer.

    I would say you're going to the wrong chiropractor. I have been going to mine once a month for a few years and OMG does it make a huge difference. He makes sure to check where my body is at each time and only make the adjustments that are necessary.
