so you see a chiropractor? how often?

just curious. iv been a massage therapist for about 11 years now (although i dont work as a therapist anymore except for family.) i know the importance of it but im wondering if it is something others realize.

whats your opinion on the practice?

I have never been to one but am actually looking into going. My back has been messed up since I did gymnastics so long as a kid, and being pregnant didn't help it. I am hoping getting it aligned can help me with other things too (I have heard it can help with earaches and allergies among other things).

Funny, I've been thinking a lot about chiros lately. I've never had it done, I always hear people say once you get it done one time you have to always go back. I have a pinched nerve in my back that I've had since I was 15 due to carrying those huge waiter trays when I was a server. And sitting at the computer irritates it. It's been causing me a lot more problems lately.

As for massages, I don't get them (from DH either). I'm not big into them, or maybe it's because DH is too rough. But I DO give him one about 5x a week. He has a smashed lumbar from his motorcycle accident.

Another thing - deep tissue massages. I hear they are great to remove the toxins from the body and can make you feel sick for a few days while the body is detoxing from it - however same "myth" (hopefully) that once you start you can't stop?

What do you think Bella?

both alignments from chiros and massages from therapist are very good for you. once you start - you CAN stop but its just good for you to do it and it can be very addictive. iv never been aligned by a chiro, but i work in close relations with them. its good to get an alignment then get a massage right after. the chiro works on the bones, joints and such and the therapist works on the muscles, tendeons and such.

as for deep tissue M's - they DO release the toxins and CAN make you a little tired for a day or two. those rumors are true to a point. depends on how much toxins are in the body. but to really get rid of toxins by massage you should do a lymphatic massage coupled with A deep tissue and followed by a relaxing - depending on the person, the usual combo would be about four to five visits. i normally recommend (again depending on the person, their activity level and their occupation along with any ailments) a massage about twice a month.

that being said: i dont do that myself unfortunatly. due to conflicting monitary views atm.

welcome

also, you should not get a massage when you are ill - it makes the illness intensify and you feel crappier. just sayin.

I just started going to a chiropractor after breastfeeding two kids and having poor posture. It has been wonderful and other kinks that I had that I have ignored for years have been adjusted and feel great! I've been going for about 3-4 weeks at first a few times a week and now once every week to 10 days. My next appt is now in three weeks and after that hopefully not for quite a while.

Does anyone know how much a visit to the chiropractor is on average? I just learned that Tricare (even Tricare standard like we have) will not cover chiropractic care for some reason

they cand range anywhere from about 25 - 75 dollars. when you look for a chiropractor ask if they have multiple visit deal or if they might have cupons out somewhere.

you should have really good talk with your chiropractor first. always be honest and tell them when, how and what has happened and how it is since it happened. they will be able to give you good info on how and why they will have to work with the area. also, you will probably be getting xrays and more diagnostic testing with them. your first visit to a chiro is very indepth (or should be, if its not, there is probably a better chiro for you).

im not sure if there is certain things they wont work with or not. i know there is certain things that a therapist wont work with. for example: i will NOT work on any one who has a blood clot. the massage could cause it to travel and/or release. SOOOOO not a good thing.


do you have a spinal injury jackie?

Not so much me. I've had scoliosis in the past, but more DH. His 5th lumbar is smashed due to his motorcycle accident in 08. His back kills him daily. He has lifelong pain meds but... he doesn't take them and hasn't for a few years. We don't like medicine.

im not sure what a chiro wpuld do about a smashed lumbar BUT i do think massage therapy would be very good for him. if its not in the budget atm - i could find some literature to teach you how to move the muscles away from the spine to help ease to tension. his muscles are gathering more in that area to help the body compensate for being injured.


ill be back with that.

do you get massages if so how often? I only get one maybe once a year. Now that I'm pregnant, I will get one about halfway through and then one at the very end so she can work my pressure points good.

so you see a chiropractor? how often? We see the chiro whenever we feel the need. Our kids have seen the chiro since they were a few days old. We will never be without a chiro...

My whole family sees a chiropractor.
DH and the kids go once a week. I'm still twice a week, but should be able to drop down to once a week soon.
We all feel better and have enjoyed an immune system boost.
