To me Chiropractic care is very simple and straight forward; if my body has a subluxation (partial dislocation) then I have my Chiropractor put it back in place. Follow it up with ice and rest and I am good to go. I could take anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxers (what my General Practitioner would probably prescribe) and have to rest longer, but I consider Chiropractic care the smarter choice for me.
One of my avid tennis playing buddies is a highly respected orthopedic surgeon in practice for many years. He is assoociated with one of the country's best hospitals and treats professional athletes. He questions chiropractic because the science is based on treating subluxations. He told me that he has done thousands of operations and never seen one.
