They're a waste of time. The first thing they'll ask for is your medical history and insurance information. They don't really give a damn about your history. That's just to cover up asking for your insurance. They need to know what your "Maximun Lifetime Benefits" are. (Remember that phrase, we'll come back to it) You'll then get an x-ray and I can guarantee they will find a twist or bump on the x-ray that they'll claim is the cause of all your problems. After a "consultaion" (actually scare tactics) they will come up with a "schedule" of so many treatments a day for so many weeks. Their favorite line is "It took a long time to develope the problem/illness/pain and it will take time to "cure" them. After you've signed on the dotted line you'll be given the schedule. If you get out your calculator and hit a few buttons you'll figure out that the "so many treatments X so many weeks X so many $'s per treatment will equal your "Maximun Lifetime Benefits". And guess what? You'll still have clusters.
If you want your spine adjusted go to an Osteopath. At least the DO can prescribe drugs and/or send you to a Neurologist.
OK, all you Chiropathetic lovers, go ahead and take your best shot. But this is my opinion and I'm sticking with it!
