About 5 years I was in an auto accident and got whiplash. In my lifetime I've had a number of bumps, bruises, and a couple stitches here and there but that car crash was certainly something different. And the most random and conflicting array of advice came flooding from all directions: let it heal naturally- go to physical therapy immediately, see a chiropractor- don't see a chiropractor, go to an acupuncturist- acupuncture is bullshit, try massage- massage may temporarily relieve pain but won't cure anything, try cool light laser (which I did and liked)- lasers?, have surgery- don't even consider surgery............ Ultimately I ended up going to a physical therapist who incorporated a variety of therapies but was heavily focused of chiropractics. And what I can say is that path jacked my neck even up worse. The place I sought treatment was first rate however I only know now in hindsight that seeing that chiropractor at that point in my recovery wasn't good. I do know people who've had tremendous results from chiropractors and I'm not dismissing that practice at all, I'm just speaking about my individual experience.
