Follow up it is now 2014.
In 2013 I became too optimistic and started to work out on weight machines again. I had been working out
with a personal trainer (have
been doing this for years) twice a week with free weights and stretching etc.
The machines did me in and could not walk too well or sit for 3 months. Needed a cane.
Found a new chiropractor, not with a Thompson table but something similar, I call it a stretching table. I never do manual adjustments only have them use the Activator.
He had something new and it is called the Graston technique, you can search it and there are a lot of you tube video's. This has been the greatest since they break down all the scar tissue around your muscles. It has been great for my neck too, better than only adjustments.
He is in the Tampa, FL area if anyone needs a good chiro
let me know.
