They do it for the noise.


My chiropractor is my hero. I do believe there is nothing he cannot do. Apart from being  "powerful figures on the Scrabble board", chiropractors can solve multiple complex injuries and structural issues just by "cracking your bones". My chiropractor has managed to fix in weeks injuries which my TEAM of GP's, physios, and specialists, have failed even to diagnose in over a year. 

I will sadly never be able to trust medical professionals ever again (except for the bone cracker). I still have a lot of deep-seated bitterness about the fact that I had an operation on a part of my body not related to my injury, and it turns out that they had completely the wrong idea about the cause of the problem. So I was sliced open and subjected to pain and misery for nothing. And now I am recovering from an injury inflicted upon me by my surgeon. Nice.

What I want to know is, why do GP's not refer people to chiropractors? It would have saved me loads of time. Why are they classed as "alternative medicine" as if they perform some kind of witchcraft?

Well, it does seem a bit like witchcraft, considering a mere cracking of my bones has achieved miracles. Chiropractors study two degrees, why are they not considered worthy? My chiro was the first person to think of x-raying me in over a year of pain and discomfort. Ie. he was sensible and had a brain.  The specialist I was referred to wanted to slice and dice me just for the fun of it.

In the future, whether I have a sore back or diptheria or a pesky neighbour, forget the GP, I am going to my chiropractor. All he has to do is "crack my bones" and all will be good.

Ghostbusters stand back please, because "when there's something strange in your neighbourhood, who you gonna call? The chiropractors!"

Traditional Thai massages do the trick just as well.

hey dumpee, I have never had one, but when I went to Thailand I saw it being done. Next time I go I will give it a try.

I totally agree with you, and have had the same experience with my chiro - he's a miracle worker! He is solving a 2 year old injury for me, by working on the structural reason for the injury, not just on the sore muscle.

I know! They really deserve way more credit than they get don't they!

po said...

kitty cat: really? That is so cool. I wish I had never had a stupid operation because my chiro could have cured me instead.

Elizabeth: I think they are the best kept secret of the medical profession!

sweets said...

so true! i've heard of countless friends and family who's been cured by a bone doctor :) sadly i think the surgeons and gp's just want to make money... i'm sure they cross their fingers behind their backs when they say that oath :)

If he can cure Diphtheria, then why isn't he working on HIV?

I'm left wondering which bits of your body were causing issues and which bits were operated on. Is it something random like throat and toe?

Being Brazen said...

heehee...thanks for the mention.

I have never been to a chiropractor before - that may explain why things arent going as well as they could be...I need to make an appointment ASAP..ha ha ha ha

It disturbs me frequently how much medical professionals don't actually know (my mom's a GP, which can be a good and a bad thing). I so believe in going for a second (and third and fourth) opinion before taking any kind of drastic action. Unless, of course we're talking about a heart attack and there's not really that much time available for discussion ;-)

po said...

hey sweets the weird thing about my story is that these crazy doctors and surgeons were not getting any money from me! Cos I am in the UK on the nhs. I don't know maybe they wanted some practice?

po said...

6000: no not that extreme, they operated on the top of my shoulder but the injury was in my back and it turns out it was because of my spine slipping out of place!

po said...

BB: yeah you should go, you may find that world peace suddenly occurs!

Tamara: I have learned my lesson and will always get at least a second opinion form now on!
