Mine was $50 which is a tinsy bit more than one lesson.. per visit.

Better to get adjusted once in awhile or so.

Also I agree with stretching.. though you must be careful. A lot of people rush into it and cause more damage than harm. Always stretch the smallest slowest bit first, and then steadily increase the range of the stretch but never go too fast.

I grew up in English public schools.. which for me was like 300 people total. We were asked to sit up straight and would get into lots of trouble for slouching. Same with riding in England.. so I have no problem sitting up as straight as a ruler without feeling any pain. It was a blessing in disguise haha.

A Osteopath would really be the best, a chiropractor will do adjustments...focusing on "bones" a Osteopath can also do that but they'll look at the total package. By that I mean the muscle and connective tissue, the stuff the bones are connected too, holding them in place, so to speak. I believe in both, but if someone has a chronic issue I believe that it makes more since to look at the whole package not just skeletal.
