The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Are Chiropractic Neck Adjustments Safe??

    Chiropractic Neck Adjustments Safe??

    ive been having neck adjustments every other day for a few weeks since i started seeing a chiropractor. ive recently uncovered some stuff online about safety issues regarding these adjustments. i asked the doc and he said that for a person my age, in good shape the risk is pretty much non-existant, and even for higher-risk factor persons it's still very low. like 1 in 5 million or less.

    still it scares me... how many of ya'll get your neck's adjusted. is it really safe? I don't want to have a stroke.

    One of my good buddies is a Chiropractor. I let him adjust my neck everytime he's in town. He always gives us free adjustments, it feels great.

    It's perfectly safe. I know the kind of schooling he went through to be where he is. I've had Chiropractors fix problems that M.D.'s couldn't fix.

    As long as you're going to a real, trained chiropractor, it's fine.

    Why are you seeing the chiro every other day?

    What is the original injury?

    Have you been to a specialist?

    For me It really depends on the chiropractor, I've had some where I gotten significant relief, and one where I experienced dramatically increased pain.
