I went to a chiropractor for several months last year, mostly for neck pain and lightheadedness. Overall it was a good experience, but I'm really not sure if there have been any real lasting changes in my health. The adjustments only last for a few minutes, and then I did neck traction on a treadmill for a half hour. I did this, plus some exercises and a neck pump (home traction device) at home for a few months.
It wasn't a bad experience, but I'm not really sure it's done anything permanent or made any changes to my condition. It certainly didn't cure my lightheadedness/fatigue spells, and correcting my posture throughout the day has probably helped more since the visits than the adjustments ever did.
It should be mentioned that Chiropracty is considered by many as "alternative medicine". The American Medical Association has boycotted it in the past and many of it's claims and techniques have not been proven in science based testing.
This is just my opinion of course. Chiropractors may be helpful to others and it's always worth a try, it may help reduce some of your symptoms. Just don't expect it to be a miracle cure"
