My friend Robert and I have a mutual friend who is a chiropractor. He swears by her expertise. He has been going to her for back problems for some time now and says that his back pain never bothers him anymore. Of course, he has to go a couple of times a month.

I know a lot of people who swear by their chiropractors. I was having some problems with back pain and asked Robert’s chiropractor if she could recommend me to one. (I lived pretty far away from her and didn’t want to make the long trip.) She recommended someone who lived really close by and I went to see her.

As I sat in the waiting room, I noticed that a lot of people cried out in pain when she made the “adjustments.” I was hoping that the treatment wouldn’t hurt too much because I was already in pain.

She assured me that she would have me taken care of in no time as I hander over my Modified CT severity index. She had me lie down on the table and started to make the adjustments. The first one really hurt. Then she did another, and another. Then she had me sit up and grabbed my head in a headlock and twisted my neck, hard.

I heard a loud pop and for a moment I thought that I was going to pass out. I got really dizzy. She told me that I might be a little sore for the next few days, but it should go away after that, and I should feel a lot better.

Well, I could hardly walk for a week. I called her up and went back into the office. She told me that I must have had a lot of toxins in my system and that’s why I was feeling so sore. I knew right then that wasn’t true. The only way to eliminate toxins from your body is through a process called chelation and that takes a hospital stay. Needless to say, I never went back to her again.

According to Healthy Planet Magazine, chiropractors mainly treat what is called the “Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Subluxations are misalignments within the spine that put endangering stress and pressure on your nerves and spinal cord.

According to chiropractors, Subluxations can shut down the nerve messages going to body organs – like your heart, liver, and lungs, just to name a few.

These misalignments can lead to more serious health problems later on. And the beauty of it is you can’t feel these subluxations until the damage is done. Of course the solution is that they can lead to a series of expensive adjustments for the rest of your life.

Well, going to a chiropractor can’t hurt, right? Wrong. I was diagnosed with a minor stroke a few months after having my treatment. Thankfully, I am fully recovered, but the damage may have been permanent, not to mention the damage that was done to my pocketbook.
