I'm sure I'll catch flak for this but I don't buy in to quackopracters either. There's no way of "adjusting" my back out of bulging disks or degenerative disk disease. I think a lot of the exercises guys have put on here are good for maintaining good back health. There are several that a good therapist can give you. I had a bulging disk in the mid 90's and went to therapy for a while, which gave me enough range of motion to really f**c my back up. Herniated a disk and was curled up on my sidewalk when the squad arrived. Had a diskectomy and about a 3 month recovery. Then I had sciatica on the other side. I took cortisone injections every 4 months for a couple years till my pain doctor put me on 1200 mg of Gabapentin (a nerve pain drug) daily. That was in 2001 I haven't had a shot since and have very little back pain. I even took a fall a few years ago where I had a couple hairline fractures in my lower vertebra, but recovered from that just fine. I've known several people who have taken this also, but it's about 50/50 on whether it worked or not. I'm very fortunate.Californiadecks said:I read an article that said chiropractors are possibly the biggest hoax in medical history. However my father swears on them too. But I've just never had luck with them. I know a lot of people like them. I think the reason I don't have any luck with them is I get bad muscle spasms. They are very painful to the point I'm walking with a cane. But that's soft tissue.
