I wonder if anyone gets an x-ray or, instead, a homeopathic remedy

deals like this are much better left alone. they arent exactly going to tell people " your back's fine " more likely it will be " its lucky you came when you did, we will need to see you twice a day, every day for the rest of your life "

I'd have to bend over backwards to be able to travel to Glasgow for these appointments...

I have back problems so I did something very similar, except it was for free. I went to my GP, who then sent me for Xrays, a spinal bone scan and now an MRI. So far has cost me exactly £0 and that includes a lot of painkillers as well. Oh, I live in wales so all prescriptions are free, maybe I should put that as a HotDeal, hahaha

I had chiropractic treatment about 10 years ago.Best thing I ever did.Doctors gave me physiotherapy which helped a bit but the chiropractic treatment helped me immensely.

This is a good deal.
Heat added.

So it's no better then... still taking a pile of painkillers then?

Exactly what I got on the NHS... in fact I got a lot more attention too.... plus 18 months unable to walk and it's still a lot worse than it was! You get what you pay for they say and with back pain, it's very true

Chiropractic is no marvellous cure, but it has given me far more pain relief than any amount of conventional bungling which gave me ADDED pain, and a lot of serious metabolic problems from years of opiate painkillers.

I would suggest you see the NICE guidelines on Chiropractic treatment which is actually available (in theory) on the NHS, they seem to like it, and approve it as a treatment in the correct circumstances, and they are a lot more technically well versed than some journalist who is getting his legal costs paid by someone!

Yes. I am a fan, and have had a lot of pain reduction and stability when I was virtually unable to even walk, but even I know it's not a miracle cure for any condition, nothing is!

The NICE guidance ( http://www.nice.org.uk/CG88 ) on lower back pain are there to help with diagnosis and treatment, but for most people the ONLY attention they get from Doctors is a prescription for pain killers, so make sure that you are following a sensible approach there, and are getting the right attention and diagnosis in the first place. A good Chiropractor won't go thundering in making it worse, but before you spend any money (after all it is about money saving on this site!) make sure there isn't anything obvious that could be missed!
This site has some good information too: http://www.patient.co.uk/doctor/Assessment-and-Management-of-Low-Back-Pain.htm


In any case make sure the right checks have been done by your GP, and the right referrals to the right Consultant too if necessary - usually they are simply too lazy as it is difficult to diagnose back problems... first of all, you would need to be sure what is going on - if it is a GENUINE, slipped disk, (ie. with the prolapsed disk pressing on the spinal cord) then this should be visible on an MRI scan, but 99.9% of sufferers never have a proper diagnosis made in the first place! The term "slipped disk" is a much over-used expression, in the same way people say "I've got the 'Flu"

Then whichever way you go, you need to prod and poke the GP a bit as to getting a full diagnosis, and some answers. Whether or not you go to a Chiropractor is up to you, I would, but I must admit you haven't even started the route with the NHS yet, and that's after 9 months! I think it fair to assume that as nothing has happened in that time, you need to start asking some questions!
X rays are not often recommended for back problems now though, there are better things such as MRI scans, but that took me 5+ yes to get, you may have more luck!

I have been on Tramadol and other opiates for many years (17+) and could write a book about the long term (permanent) effects they have had on me, for which I receive significant other drug treatments, those effects are other than just the obvious addiction! There is no potential for cure for me, so I still need to take them, but I use Chiropractic to reduce pain and increase mobility, which is more than conventional sources of treatment have done for me. Wish I didn't have to, it's not cheap, but it has allowed me to stay at the Tramadol "level," or pain relief and NOT increase to more potent opiates, yet.

I would suggest you see the NICE guidelines on Chiropractic treatment which is actually available (in theory) on the NHS, they seem to like it, and approve it as a treatment in the correct circumstances, and they are a lot more technically well versed than some journalist who is getting his legal costs paid by someone!


I would suggest reading the article I linked to, since you clearly haven't bothered to take the facts of the matter into account. Your response is pointless as you've failed to do so.

And thus speaks the mindless zealot who refuses to let the facts get in the way of his beliefs. So sad.

No, it's a cranky looney site. A want-to-be journo who has found someone with a vested interest to pay his legal bills! Seen it before, not worth the time or the eyesight the first time round. The internet is full of this sort of thing on a million other issues too.

Medical and scientific sites, properly edited with scientific examination of evidence different matter. Plenty of those too, some supportive, some not, but at least they are worth reading. No-one has posted any up to now, the argument is tired, and no-one reading or inputting with any interest in a good discussion, just a lot of name calling... "mindless zealot" isn't the tone of someone who is open to any sort of discussion. I have been more constructive than anyone, but the name calling isn't worth continuing with.

Go and insult someone else.

Anyone willing to talk constructively, please do, any others, goodbye

I suspect this is the point the "newly registered" posters start appearing hurling more abuse?

It was not an insult nihcaj it was a statement of fact. If the science does not fit your beliefs you are not interested. Science does not back up Chiropractic practices. It is a made up pretend cure that is pure quackery. the fact that you do not rate Simon Singh is the clincher for me. You are perfectly entitled to your own opinions but not your own facts. Any benefits you found by paying them your no doubt hard earned money was purely down to the placebo effect.
