JanH, yes, I would have a hard time without my chiropractor. Unfortuantely all are not cut from the same cloth. It is difficult to find a master of the neck alighment. Fortunately I have found another in our new location. The alignments he gives have held over 6 months which is fortuante for me cause I live about 100 miles away from him.
Many headaches hold their cause in tension and misalignment of the neck. As a massage therapist I can testify that massage can cure some chronic migrane situations also. Some people need massage and neck alignmnent both.
Please be advised
I advocate all health blogs linked to NMT.
Read them and explore MMS and CS.
It may be the best chance that you have to heal yourself
of long term and chronic illness.
