My backs messed up since havingthe boys.

and i constantly feel i need it 'cracked'

i get my DP to do it (i know i shouldnt) and i always have to lie flat on the floor and twist myself in various postions to crack it myself

same with my neck.

but it always feels lke it needs doing again.

would a chiropractor sort this? or would i have to go regularly??

Hi Kit you could go and get a deep tissue massage. It would work wonders for your back. All those knots that are causing discomfort can only be massaged away, it's like a form of detox.

I go to a chiropractor regularly. NOT the same as going for a massage, though he does a little bit of that too. Mostly he is manipulating the joints back in place. He works miracles.

In the beginning he would have me come twice a week, then once a week, and now I just go now and then when I feel like it. You will not be hooked and have to go all the time for ever.
smile Good luck, it is soooo worth it.

You could try an osteopath either, they do similar things. They tend just to see you once or twice, chiropractors tend to sign you up for quite a lot of treatments.
DP is an osteopath so I am biased.

The good thing about massage is it's the only way to get rid of certain toxins that build up in your system over the years.
It's always very discreet, you lying down and covered up, you won't have to move until they are finished.

Thanks for the advise.

Does anyone know the going rates for a seesion with a chiropracter/osteopath/ massuse?
