Sep 23, 17, 10:08 AM #47I'm no Charles Atlas by a long shot, and I've got some (lots of) work to do to make my waking moments as intense as he did. Though my routine is small peanuts compared to his, I simply just find it effective to start the day in a way that is beneficial to the strength and agility of the body versus doing nothing. Even a little bit makes a world of difference than doing nothing, and after it becomes routine, you feel that something is sorely missing if you happen not to do it.

But I'd still rather put my trust in doctors rather than chiropractors when my neck or spine is a concern.
Same with other professions. I'm not going to a paint shop or a car wash to get my car's engine serviced.
If there's a problem with my neck or spine I want the medically trained experts to examine and treat me.

Chiropractors are great for relief of minor pain. I see mine 2 to 3 times a year, typically during the warmer months when I'm playing a lot of golf or working in the yard.

A chiropractor shouldn't be someone you see weekly, and a good one will tell you it's time to move on to a specialist if his or her treatment isn't working.

I ended up having to see a neurosurgeon and have vertebrae damage in my neck, which was made worse by the treatments. My neurosurgeon said that he had no problems with chiropractors as long as they only treated the lower back and did not touch the neck or upper back area.
