I’ve been to two different chiropractors in the past month due to a bad lower back sprain and constant tension/tightness in my neck and shoulders for the past year at least. They both took really different approaches to me and I’m wondering which is overall better for my health. This is my first experiences with chiropractors, by the way.
The first chiropractor first had me on a table and simply “adjusted” me by pressing down upwards along my back and the “adjusting” my neck. He doesn’t believe in the “snap crackle pop” method, as he calls it, and wanted me coming back at least once a week or so.
The second chiropractor got some extreme crunchies out of me and did the typical stuff like having me lay on my side and twisting me, popping my neck, ect. He was all about them pops.
I’ve tried reading on it, but I haven’t gather much except that the first doctor is more “corrective”, and the second is more pain relief? If so I’d like to continue with the corrective method.
Just reread and it sounds confusing. “The past year at least” is referring to my neck and shoulder problems, not how long I’ve been seeing the chiropractors.
