Get a proper answer: Chiropractors do not diagnose but merely treat with deep massage based upon an outmoded theory of disease causation. The deep massage can sometimes temporarily relieve pain, but cannot treat the cause nor cure the condition. If you are going repeatedly to a chiro, then you have confirmed this understanding.
