Chiropractor " a scam?" update
Reporting back on granddaughter's chronic ankle trouble: wonder of wonders, she has been pain free for almost three weeks. This after seeing two orthopod specialist and seeing a p.t. For a month or more, resulting in no help, only more pain.
I do not know to what extent the in- office treatments effected her "cure"', and how much is owed to her orthotics. He gave much credit to the inserts. In office included ultra sound, an electric shock machine(name?), "adjustments"' of one or two minutes, and the orthotic fitting.
This is the man who boldly gaurenteed he'd have her fixed in 6 weeks.......and yes he did! Now, time will tell , but for now we are all utterly amazed and thrilled. Her orthotics feel/ fit fine and she no longer must wear her brace. I will report back in six months. Meanwhile, though it still seems like hocus pocus to this sceptic, there is a new acceptamce to the potential benefits of chiropractic medicine.....and I cannot believe I just wrote that!!
