    I just joined this forum and is looking for some advice. I am a competitive tennis player. I play all sorts of the tournament, if not the international ones! But, lately, I have been having some shoulder pain. It is affecting my backhand service! My coach and doubles partner are worried about that. My doubles partner keep telling me to visit a chiropractor because that’s what cured his sports-related injuries or ailments. But my uncle, who is a nurse, says chiropractors are quacks. I know it is irrational, but I have also heard it from a few others.

    Anyway, I decided against it and had my first appointment with a chiropractor in Edmonton this morning. He asked to take X-rays, and I will be soon returning for a prognosis on any treatment needs I have. And the best part is that all this only cost me a few dollars. So I just figured, if I could get an initial treatment and recommendation regarding what future treatment is needed, for a few dollars, then it is economical. Like, if I use my insurance to see a regular or sports medicine doctor for my shoulder, I’ll have to pay a higher amount for x-rays and appointments. So I have decided to give chiropractic a try!

    What do you guys think? What experiences have you had with a chiropractor? I am hoping to hear from you folks who have had real experiences( good or bad)! Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!


    It’s good to know that you’re in Edmonton because I also had an experience with a chiropractor who is based in Edmonton. I will highly recommend it. I’m sure that you haven’t contacted him because you won’t post here if you visit them. Long story short, conatct the Edmonton Physio clinic and do what they say to you. I hope you will be recover soon.

    Good luck!
