    chiropractic or osteopath?

    Has anyone here had experience with chiropractic or osteopathic work for treatment of FMS? I've had chiropractic in the past, and it helped a lot, and I'm trying to decide whether to continue that now, or try osteopath instead.

    I'm a 40 yo male. My symptoms are:
    - "all over" pain which gets much worse with repeated movements or stress
    - aspirin and ultram help the pain
    - moderate fatigue. I am not disabled, but I can't keep up with normal people and need to rest many times to get through the day.

    I go to a chiropractor. It has helped with headaches. I had a neck that curved the wrong way. I was hoping that was why I had fibro. Unfortunately, still have fibro and it's aches and pains. But, I feel less "blah" or "grey" inside. (if that makes any sense)

    Osteopaths these days operate more like medical doctors. They have gotten away from their roots - that being like chiropractic.
