I went to the chiropractor as I've been feeling ill for a long time now and someone told me keeping adjustments can help with your overall help. I've had mild neck pain on and off, but nothing to suggest i had serious issues. anyhow, i got x rayed and it was a shock to find out I've arthritis in the neck, and also very bad alignment. The chiropractor said it was from whiplash, and my neck has lost its curve. He says i need to go for 2 adjustments a week for 4 weeks, then down to one a week, then we will see where to go from here. I'm heart broken as I've been through years of bad health in general and too me this is unrelated and more bad news. however, he says that its affecting my general health....energy, mood etc etc. Im going to go to my primary care dr and ask his opinion. to be honest if i sign up for this its going to take so much energy and money - both of which are limited for me. this is all new to me. I'm quite upset about it. please any opinions would be helpful
ps i saw the X-ray and it didn't look all that different from the normal one, just slightly, but then i don't have a trained eye. he said it would just get worse over time if i didn't address it. the alignment and posture did look bad though.
