Darwin where do you go? I could use a good one around here, and one that gives a discount for cash, as my insurance doesn't cover it...

Most chiropractors don't have an md. I doubt there are hardly any who do. It takes 10 years just to get an md, then you'd be looking at four more years in chiropractor school. 90 semester hours is all that's required to start a chiropractor program. You don't even need a bachelor's degree.

The alignment of your spine actually has a lot to do with sleep, and theres more to good sleep than just staying asleep.
A maligned spine can cause parts of your body to twitch, feel pain/discomfort or easily become numb, contribute to existing conditions such as apnea, blood pressure...all kinds of stuff can happen, and a nerve that had pressure on it or is pinched can cause pretty much any symptom. Much of it being less than serious, sure, but it can still add up and sap you of your energy more than you realize, and the effects do get worse as you age.
The entire chiropractic "discipline" is founded on the belief that "subluxations" cause disease. It's a load of crap that has never held up to real scientific scrutiny.

http://www.chirobase.org/01General/placebo.html

Most "benefit" people experience is based on placebo.

If it's working for you, cool. But little of the chiropractic theories are based on real scientific evidence. To say that these guys are MDs is way wrong.

Also this:

Whatever you do don't let these guys adjust your neck.

The one I go to is actually in Ortonville (Dr. Royann Hassinger). I met her when I managed the network and servers for the library out there - she was on the board of directors at the time. She uses 'activation' methods with what she calls a 'stapler'. It's a round-tipped spring-loaded low impact punch (that sounds like a stapler) that gently shifts the discs rather than the traditional and often more uncomfortable methods. Because of the type of treatment though, she does recommend a string of regular visits - probably why it's cheaper per visit too, heh.

I do know of some truely great, and expensive adjusters. They also take xrays once a month to see progress, but this is to fix injuries. Not for random visits.

Of course i would go to a real doctor first.

A quote if you don't want to read that last link:

"In 1992, researchers at the Stanford Stroke Center asked 486 California members of the American Academy of Neurology how many patients they had seen during the previous two years who had suffered a stroke within 24 hours of neck manipulation by a chiropractor. The survey was sponsored by the American Heart Association. A total of 177 neurologists reported treating 56 such patients, all of whom were between the ages of 21 and 60. One patient had died, and 48 were left with permanent neurologic deficits such as slurred speech, inability to arrange words properly, and vertigo (dizziness). The usual cause of the strokes was thought to be a tear between the inner and outer walls of the vertebral arteries, which caused the arterial walls to balloon and block the flow of blood to the brain."
