As evidence that "chiropractic" does not follow any "best practices" models .......

Why would a quack chiropractor stick acupuncture needles into someone when they also claim that they can cure all ailments, including neck pain, by "gently tweaking" the top vertebrae (ie hio and nucca chiropractic techniques)?

A full investigation into the chiropractic enterprise needs to be done.

The above imbecile, wisdom, who is not a chiropractor or MD, offers useless advice. She has zero credentials, meaning zero professional degrees.
How do I know she isn't a chirorpactor. Well, I'll tell you. She can't remember the chiropractic school she graduated (or didn't graduate) from.
A fraud like wisdom will say anything for attention.

I, on the other hand, have a thriving all cash practice. If patients don't get better, they don't pay. Rarely do I have a patient who doesn't pay.
I don't accept dime-one of insurance money. I do not accept any money from ANY third party payer.
Chiropractic is the best profession ever. Period. I get to help thousands of people a year with a vast variety of conditions--and get paid extremely well.

Wow, quite the rant. Nothing to do with the "topix" at hand. I guess you are a chiropractor. I guess claiming that you make lots of money is the usual chiropractic response?

Tell me, mr. chirorpactor, there are chiropractors (licensed by state chiropractic boards) who claim they can heal you by lightly tweaking the top vertebrae. So why would other chiropractors fell the need to "first" stick needles into you to cure the same problem?

Could it be that there are NO best practices that chiropractors follow?

I was a chiropractor. That's why is so easy to expose you frauds.
But you already knew this and yet you insist on playing your juvenile games. And you wonder why I left chiropractic and am now in medicine?

Now, try to focus ....

I'm going to see my chiropractor first, to see if he can help my back. If he can't help I will look into acupuncture. It just sounds like it would hurt a lot. http://www.hiddenvalleychiropractic.com

Acupuncture is one of the oldest form of treatment. It is bit painful but also very effective. You can ask your queries about acupuncture at https://plus.google.com/100923324972089266153... .

I think the best option for back pain is massage therapy. It relaxes the muscles in the area through the application of pressure. I was suffering from severe back pain and often have a visit to a chiropractic clinic in Oakville for massage therapy ( http://www.oakvillechiropractic.com/ ). Massage therapy is an effective way to get a relief from these pains. Currently, I am not using any other medications other than this therapy. I am satisfied with my therapy result.

I am about to try acupuncture for the first time. For a long time I thought it wouldn't work but I've heard great things from other back pain sufferers so am going to give it a go. I so hope it gives me some relief!

I've tried acupuncture for the first time. It is painful a little bit but it's worth it. The discomfort I feel in my back already diminish. I also consult some advice on chiropractor in Singapore and yes it feels good to be out of pain.

The best thing to do for your back is to stretch your hamstrings daily, learn to hold your pelvis at the correct angle and strengthen your glutes.
It is also possible for your ribs to come partly displaced along the spine if you have bad posture. Tape two tennis balls together and starting at the neck slowly roll them down your spine (you would have them under you on the floor) stopping at points long the spine where it feels like the rib may be out of place and let body weight push it back in. You can also do this with a foam roll about 6 or 8 inches in diameter. Just lay on it with your spine along its length and your arms hanging straight outward.

Acupuncture causes blood flow to increase in the area the needle is stuck. Any help you get from it comes from that.
Some chiros are frauds and some are honest, either way what they do can be helpful or harmful. The last guy I went to was a charlatan who tried to injure me to extend my treatments for an MVA. He trained his masseuse to inflict pain. When I asked her to stop doing something she got angry and so did he when I saw him after. I ended the relationship.
I don't think spinal misalignment is anything more than the lack of proper muscle tone and regular use and stretching of same. I know it can affect things it seems unlikely to be related to but to be as important as some chiros try to make it seem goes a bit far if you ask me.

Acupuncture is known to be non-traditional treatment for back pain or neck pain. If your back pain and neck pain is because of stress, then acupuncture is the best treatment for your problem. Several clinical studies are conducted s far which shows acupuncture successfully treats not only musculoskeletal problems such as back pain, neck pain, and others, but also helpful in other condition such as nausea, migraine headache, anxiety, depression, insomnia, infertility and many more. But correct treatment is required which will Chiropractor can provide you.

Here's a good article explaining why ( http://www.totalchirocare.com/chiropractic-ca... ) chiropractic care is really a great option to traditional medicine and surgery. Sometimes I think chiropractors can practice a vacuum and need a wider gamut of services, knowledge and experience at their disposal. Acupuncture is one wonderful form of treatments for many ailments, if administered properly and in balance with other available recommended natural treatments, http://www.totalchirocare.com/blog/b_84874_wh...
