Consider: Active exercise therapy along with chiropractic care since anything that is done to you passively will only give you limited relief.

See an MD first: Chiropractic offers a deep massage but no actual diagnosis or long term treatment. It is based on an old theory, long outmoded and proven to be a fantasy. If you have a physical issue, check with your regular MD for diagnosis and he can recommend deep massage if that is the problem. Deep massage is probably best administered via a physical therapist.

Why ?: Are you havin pain? Musculoskeletal problems can give you neck pain (strain, joints, arthritis, pinched nerve). A disc bulge can be minor or serious. Why would you go to a chiro ? What will alignment do? Best to see an md who can help you isolate the cause and arrive at a solution. In the mean time, stretch, heat, relaxation may help. Chiro is essentially a scam. Or at best a massage
