Cookie cutter care plans have never sat well with me... If the doctor performs regular progress exams and can demonstrate objective improvement, then so be it... but when every patient who walks in the door is put on the same treatment schedule, you have to wonder if that's what is truly best for you.

I recommend searching your area for an Upper Cervical Chiropractor. There's a directory of practitioners available here: www.UpCspine.com

Yes to both of your questions, Amy. The body goes through different phases/stages of repair after an injury. I would recommend getting an evaluation from a reputable chiropractor.

It's not unreasonable to suggest that the manipulations your son received exacerbated the already misaligned area. Some adjustments are perfectly safe, but may have contraindications for use... Ultimately, I cannot say for sure since I didn't observe the treatment personally. I would recommend searching for a more gentle and passive approach to s...

I'm sorry to say that I don't have a diagnosis for you, but you might consider searching for a certified ART practitioner (Active Release Technique) in your area. These specialists have an extremity protocol that can be very helpful.

At this point, I wouldn't say that having a chiropractor adjust you is ill-advised. Just make sure the DC knows you have a grade-2 spondylo, and isn't thrusting into it from back-to-front (while you're face down on the table). Chiropractic care won't reduce the condition, but it may help strengthen the supporting structures of the spine...

Shelbby, I would say yes to your first question. I believe it would be beneficial if you consulted with a chiropractor for this situation. As for your second question - personally I believe that what you've heard is nonsense. You don't have to "keep going back" if you don't notice any improvements. Patients often elect to return fo...
