Chiropractor?

Post by michelle » January 10th, 2009, 2:24 am

Okay, I have so many problems with my back that I have to see a chiropractor on a regular basis. It works for me without having to take medication. Since, I got the ICD my doctor will not allow me to go to the chiropractor. I don't think he approves of chiropractors. I told my doc that my chiropractor does not manually adjust me but uses a small activator that pushes on the area,controlled by the doctor. It is not a hard hitting device but feels a little stronger than someone flicking you. It is hard to explain, but there is no pulling or moving around. My doc thinks the leads would be moved by this. Does anyone go to the chiropractor or have you heard of problems from the chiropractor related to the ICD? I

I am still doing good and I have felt some much better since my ICD. Happy New Year!

Yes, I have seen a Chiropractor for months at a time being adjusted up to 3 times per week on several occassions while having the ICD, since I have had mine almost 10 years. I have had no problems lead wise or otherwise. I mostly have had my neck shoulders and upper back done, but some areas of my back. All with the activator. I have even had my neck popped -- I know don;t warn me -- I trust my chiropractor lady.

Any way that is my two cents.

Guin,

I ended up going today to the chiropractor and I feel so much better. Thanks for the post, it is comforting knowing someone has been there and done that. I love my chiropractor and could not imagine not seeing him again.

Michelle -- The only thing you need to avoid at the chiropractor is the electric pads that shock your muscles. Other than that, it's fine.

You might be talking about the "TENS" machines. I have one and have used it on my back for years. It produces an electrical charge from a 9 volt (or similar) battery. You can get a pretty good jolt. I won't use mine now above my waist. It cures nothing but does relax the muscles allowing a healing. BE CAREFUL.
