Last Friday I strained my back and on Monday, I was still hurting. So...I went to a Chiropractor. I was nervous about the prospect of someone cracking my neck, but I bit the bullet. He gave me an adjustment, and almost immediately I felt better. All the people I know who go to Chiropractors swear by them. But I did some research. some people say getting your spine cracked can cause brain damage?! So good thing? Bad thing? It worked! But an adjustment is intense-your back really DOES crack!
