I was looking for the top chiropractor in Chattanooga. My General Physician diagnosed a strained muscle when I told him I could no longer raise my arm past a 90 degree angle to my shoulder, couldn’t reach behind my back at all and getting more difficult to dress myself. Been going on over 4 months and slowly getting worse. He was no help whatsoever, just said “strained muscle, it’ll get better on its own”. I went to a top chiropractor in the Chattanooga area, she reckoned it was a trapped nerve, did some manipulation – some of which was a bit outside my comfort zone but bearable, gave me some exercises, which increased slightly in difficulty over the sessions. At that moment, I knew she was a top Chattanooga chiropractor. She did a little bit of the back/neck cracking stuff – though not painful I can’t say I liked it much. After five sessions my arm is much better, still ‘jars’ sometimes when I forget to be a bit careful, can raise it straight up above my head now. I definitely think she helped where my General Physician clearly didn’t, and don’t feel the need to return.
A top chiropractor is hard to find around Chattanooga. I figured I would have to go further to find someone who is on top of their profession. There seem to be more than a few medical doctors who have misdiagnosed, killed and maimed patients. Does that mean ALL medical doctors are bad? I’ve been with my current chiropractor for twenty years. She is a top chiropractor chattanooga. She quit twice to have her children and I tried a few others who were mediocre at best so was relieved when she returned. I certainly would try a chiropractor before ever considering surgery. chiropractor has been around for more than 100 years in the US, so perhaps UK chiropractors don’t have the same level of training nor experience. I certainly wouldn’t see someone who was newly licensed. The most common type has a wadge of calcium salts or chalk in the tendon over the head of the humerus and this catches on the underside of the joint at the point of the shoulder. Ouch. Success from your chiropractor probably the result of making you move a joint you were holding stiff to avoid pain.
If it comes back ask your GP for a proper investigation to avoid further problems. In the many stories of chiropractor disasters I wonder if you are talking about osteopaths. Either way, there is an official body overseeing their training and registration. Just like doctors, you can make complaints about them to this body and just like doctors you can sue for damages through the courts. In these days of no win, no fee, it is a simple matter to ask an injury lawyer to comment and just like the adverts say – you will not need to go to court. Modern chiropractors and osteopaths are expected to make proper inquiry and examination before they treat and they all have access to X-rays so it should be a simple matter to avoid making neck aches worse and running the risk of paralysis or increased pain after manipulations. Another huge concern I have is the expense.
Currently I have $16,500 taken out in loans after the first term and as soon as I start the second that will be doubled. Is it possible to get the loans to pay for med school after already having this taken out without having to pay off my chiropractor school debt first?
