Got sent this deal from Groupon and as I suffer with my back and have spent loads on physio, chiropractic sessions etc. I thought this was a good deal, especially as it includes not only a consultation but a back scan and spinal care workshop. Sorry if this has already been posted, did do a search but couldn't find anything. I've attached the wording from the advert below.

Feel Verte-Great with Four Chiropractic Sessions including Consultation, Scan and Spinal Care Workshop with Back to Health Chiropractic for £34 instead of £185

“Get back to where you once belonged” sang the Beatles in one of their most famous songs. Listen to the Fab Four and get your back to where it once belonged, in a land of health and wellbeing, with four sessions at Back to Health Chiropractic with a full consultation, back-scan and spinal care workshop included or £34 instead of £185.

Chiropractors start from the principle that good spinal alignment is vital in improving flexibility and posture and maintaining good health, and that the interlinking relationship between the spine and nervous system is crucial in influencing the human body’s natural ability to heal. A misalignment of the spine is a reaction to common everyday stresses that the body is subjected to, adding pressure to the spine, and thus nervous system, and inevitably affecting the quality of everyday life. The role of the chiropractor is to alleviate a diversity of complaints by adjusting spinal misalignments, and provide relief from a number of symptoms including back pain, migraines, and joint posture and muscular problems with various techniques and treatments to leave you feeling supple and restored.

Look after your spine and feel fine with four comprehensive chiropractic sessions at Back to Health Chiropractic, in the branch of your choice. Embark on a full consultation, where the chiropractor will discover the symptoms and sources of your discomfort, and work closely with you to find the most appropriate treatment. With a comprehensive back-scan and spinal care workshop included, all in a highly professional and welcoming environment with expert chiropractors and quality products on offer, Back to Health Chiropractic are dedicated and more than capable to fully ensure that you are back to health.

'Chiropractors start from the principle that good spinal alignment is vital in improving flexibility and posture and maintaining good health, and that the interlinking relationship between the spine and nervous system is crucial in influencing the human body’s natural ability to heal.'

Indeed they do, and it's completely moronic drivel. Chiropractic 'medicine' is no more valid than reflexology, homeopathy, or faith healing. To see these people in action just go to youtube and search for - penn teller alternative medicine. Best line: 'Baby-twisting mother-'

I agree that some weird stuff does get said; and some branches of the profession get involved in weird and wonderful ideas about disease processes; plus "Corley McTimoney" type is just plain hocus pocus, and not "conventional" in any sense of the word - but Chiropractic and Osteopathy (which regardless of what they both say are surprisingly similar in practical terms!) really works, as long as they don't veer too far away from spinal and joint issues.
I accept that the Placebo effects of such treatments may be a factor, as it is in ANY form of therapeutic treatment but if so, other conventional and non-conventional treatments would also offer a placebo effect that I haven't experienced in anything like the same way.

Chiropractic (and Osteopathy, but I prefer Chiropractic, and it's easier to find a properly qualified one!) kept me working for probably 6 or 7 years after I would otherwise have had to have given up, and even now gives me significant relief, which has NEVER been forthcoming by conventional medical and physiotherapy treatments - sadly not as long term a benefit as I would like, (or as many Chiropractors would claim!) but I willingly pay the fee (33 quid a session not ridiculous amounts like £185 quoted here!), even though I am disabled and on a very tight income, and have to spend a lot of time on here to make sure I spend wisely!

In something like 20 years, I have never been injured or made worse by one either, which is rather a better track record than Physiotherapists (some of whom DO use a similar manipulative technique to Chiropractic, but I found it a whole lot less predictable, and harder to access!), a couple of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and a Consultant in Pain Management (an Anaesthetist) the latter of which managed to have me almost totally wheelchair-bound for something like 18 months, and even now, about 7 years later continues to give pain and immobility that was not there before!

Remember most Medical Insurers will pay Chiropractic fees, and it is potentially possible to get Chiropractic on the NHS, although in practice few ever do.

It definitely won't work for everyone, but it does for me, on specific problems, and it does for many others - my Chiropractor doesn't find it necessary to make special offers, more a problem is getting an appointment, he is so popular, so I find I am not alone in getting results.

This is not an invitation to spend the next 3 months discussion of the principle, all of which will be as vague waffle as Chiropractors are accused of; but I need to balance up the argument; what might swing the argument would be if the objectors will describe the problems they have had with a Chiropractic, and the results of their Court proceedings (real UK ones!) or disciplinary proceedings with the Chiropractic registrations bodies against specific practitioners, surely there must be lots of these claims if it is so bad or so useless as many quote these vague objections, but while I can find MASSES of cases against conventional medics who cause injury, including my own - I never see any proof of any malpractice from those who claim it is so harmful! Even a few claims for refunding fees from the County Court would be a good start! Even I can't believe they as SO reliable as that!

Neither Chiropractic or Osteopathic medicine are anything other than faith healing, and have never exhibited anything other than placebo-level curitive effects. In other words, they aren't 'medicine' in the scientific sense. As for your glowing endorsement, I know two friends who have suffered at the hands of these people. One went in with mild lower back pain, and after a 1-hr treatment (sorry, 'realignment') has been effectively crippled for the past four years. Osteopaths have less chance of crippling you, but they are still talking nonsense - if you believe in 'body-spirit' and chakras then go ahead, that's what these people are actually talking about, they've just dressed up the old medieval beliefs in scientific clothing. It isn't true, and it doesn't actually work. End of story.

Oh, just to finish this off, chiropractors cannot be sued for several reasons; they are not 'doctors'. They do not have insurance. Anyone can become a chiropractor, just say you are one, and there you go. Well done. Now, if you get injured by such a person, and then you try to sue them for it, it's akin to asking a stranger in the street with no medical qualifications to mess about with your spinal column, and then sueing them when they cause damage. Do you think that would even get to court? As for proceedings against chiropractors BY chiropractors, do you seriously think that would ever happen? That would be admitting that they didn't know what the hell they were doing (which they don't). Most importantly, chiropractors have cleverly chosen to treat one of the only parts of the body where injury and pain are mainly anecdotal - how do you 'prove' back pain? Or measure it? You can't, hence you can't sue them for it. Now, why didn't you think of those answers yourself? Because you're a credulous individual who has been milked by these people for years. A massage would have done you just as much good, or a relaxing bath. Those are the facts. Ask a doctor. A REAL doctor. One with 7 years of medical training. Finito.

Well that's sorted that out.

Just trolling crap.

You made an initial post that had hints of genuine opinion, and I fell for it!
Ah well, ten points for effort.

The follow up is just tripe:

Of course Chiropractors can be sued!

I haven't wasted time reading the rest, once bitten twice shy!

Thank you for admitting I am correct. You over-use of exclaimation marks and your pretense of not reading are unequivical indications that you have no answer to my statements and questions. Don't be angry at ME because you've been duped out of thousands of pounds by a magic bone-poker. Santa-Claus also doesn't exist, nor unicorns. I suggest you read some books on the scientific method and modern medical methodologies and see where you've been going wrong all these years.

Keep the faith, brother.

You need comprehension lessons, I certainly don't admit you are correct, and you will find that I haven't read past the first line on this post either.

I wouldn't have read that much, only I read fast and it was too late, I had already seen it. Actually I usually put trolls on ignore, but since they changed the site, my ignore list is empty, perhaps I need to resurrect it

At least it gives me something to talk about when I see my Chiropractor next Wednesday, although it's going to be a bit embarrassing to have to admit being suckered by such an obvious troll.

Of course, you will need to have the last word, as all such posters do.....

Indeed I SHALL have the last word; chiropractic is classed as alternative medicine. If it worked, it would be called 'medicine'. Alternative medicine is placaebo medicine, in all cases. If it shows actual medical benefit then it becomes just 'medicine'. It's had over a century to prove itself, and like homeopathy and reflexology it's failed miserably. Feel free to ignore reality, but you are wasting your money. Go on a cruise instead.

I'm putting on my tinfoil hat in your honour....
