Please bear with me, I am really trying to understand.
1)"To give an adjustment, chiropractors use their hands to apply a carefully and precisely directed pressure to the area of the spine out of alignment in a quick manner. Herron explained that there are different types of adjustments she can perform, ranging from the straight, osseous adjustment which is a forceful technique."
-This is what she thought would be the best to help me. She quickly moved my neck as I was lying down (I'm sure you know what this is). It is quick and forceful and your correct SOMETIMES you hear a cracking sound which I understand IS not the goal.
2)I looked at the pics of f/d at website and am not quite sure how it works with the neck. (I'll ask her tomorrow). I'm assuming the table helps create space in the disc? (again I am not sure)
3)So in your opinion, you believe that #1)-the above quote
is NOT needed? This is what the other chiro did as well.
4)Do you find it counterproductive, irritating, or not in my best interest. I only ask you WHY BECAUSE she thinks it is the BEST.(it will help me formulate my thoughts and questions I will ask her)
I know you already stated many times that f/d would be best. And I am seeking a second opinion by a DC. I just want to thouroughly understand as it is my body and well being.
I am a bit uneasy by #1. I dont want to further aggrevate it or unwittingly hurt myself with 2 herniated discs to my neck. Can #1 do this?
It seems that is what most chiro's do as the main modality. Of course I could be incorrect.
What is it about #1 that makes her think it is the PRIMARY. Of course I am asking you before I ask her WHY NOT f/d in the neck.
I hope I am clear. I am trying to be succinct amid confusion and a real wanting to understand and heal.
