Does anyone go to a cracker?



  • After seeing this segment:

    http://www.pbs.org/saf/1210/video/watchonline.htm
    (Click on "Adjusting the Joints")

    I will never let a chiropractor touch my neck. I'd go
    to one if they'd only crack my back.



  • u can get people who crack parts of your body - wow im surprised



  • I got a girl to walk on me before, it felt really good. She was light though, so I knew she couldn't break anything.



  • I saw a video about a chiropractor and how he had left his profession because he could no longer see the point in it. I completely agree - it is very dangerous - with the neck crack potentially causing a life threatening stroke.

    Also when they claim to "align your spine" by pulling your legs up, they might make a mistake and be off by centimetres. Thus causing you damage which may not be noticeable but also might be explicit and life threatening.



  • yes it is dangerous. i went to a chiropractor - his "adjustments" relieved the pain slightly, maybe for a few hours afterwards i felt good, but then my neck/back felt bad as normal.
    i wish i was super-rich so that i could go every day 8)

  • Oh young buck.
    enjoy the flexibility of your youth.
    soon you will blink your eyes and be that older person.
    with lesser ROM and knots in your muscles causing you pain that you can't comprehend now.
    Then you may want to reconsider the benefits systematic of stretching.
    I wish i picked up on it earlier

    What do you mean if i am in to that kind of thing? What do you think? :lol:



  • I meet with one once a month, he gets my upper back and neck, and it feels really good for the rest of the day… although I do have to continue popping it that day. I find that if I don't see my chiro in awhile, popping my next starts to hurt a bit, and I'm not as successful at it.

    is it helping you in the long term though?

    So what does that tell you about them?

    They are doing something not natural as you can't get it ?
