I lost faith in chiropractic work when I was younger, and not one chiro I went to could give me any relief from the pinched nerve in the right side of my back, going down my arm. Fast forward 10 years and I found a chiro by accident that was actually worth my money. She took x-rays, created a back crack routine and put me in physical rehab. Its been 5 years and I've yet to feel my pinched nerve. The deterieration in my arm was so severe I had lost a lot of muscle in it. She rebuilt that muscle, but I don't have any reflexes in my right arm anymore and it goes to sleep a lot.
I'm sure if I went back on a regular basis, she could help me with that. But we live in different states now!
I am a certified equine massage therapist and I've never lost a client or heard anything negative about my techniques. I certainly believe in what I do, I feel it benefits the working horse, the retired horse and I have seen a lot of improvement in the horses I've treated out of injuries. I have a new client I'm visiting tomorrow who's horse keeps popping her hip out of line. She had the chiropractor come down for an adjustment and I'll be working in line with that, using massage therapy. One or another is good, but both is ideal. I'm happy to have a chiropractor work in my area with me :)
