Nope sorry. Aren't chiropractors a bit dodgy though? Certainly wouldn't let them loose on my back or neck anyway - go to your GP and see what they advise.
don't make such a silly remark! my brother spent a long time getting properly trained up to be a qualified chiropractor. you might as well say that all dentists are charlatans and that you should just use a bit of string and a kitchen door!
carole, you should check out the accreditations and insurance of the practitioners before hand, they won't have any issue with that.
quoted from my brother's site;
Is Chiropractic safe?
Chiropractic has just celebrated its' centenary and is proven safe and effective.
In 1992, a study compared Chiropractic with other forms of treatment. Chiropractic treatment was found to be more effective initially and furthermore, its' effects were longer lasting.
Current guidelines from the Royal College of General Practitioners (based on government white paper) now recommend the use of manual therapies, such as Chiropractic, in the treatment of back pain.
Chiropractors from the Anglo European College of Chiropractic (AECC) now have to complete a full time five year degree course. The emphasis is on spinal adjusting, X-ray procedures, anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology and biomechanics (the physics of joint movement).
Always make sure you consult a qualified chiropractor.
