I've had pain in between my shoulder blades and front sternum, mostly on my right side for a few years. I was told that I had subluxations and had a rib or two out of alignment.
I recently signed up for a "48 session" chiropractic journey. They claim that straightening the spine will allow my nerves to help their organs function better. It made sense, so I signed up and paid $2400. They only took X-rays of my neck and lower back when I signed up. Now I'm 2 months and 24 visits into my 4 month treatment and my front and rear ribs are still in pain. I can hardly do a push up.
I asked the doctor why they didn't take x-rays of my center back, and they said it was a good idea, so they took some... (why didn't they do this in the first place???)
Today I review the X-rays, and they were in shock at how twisted my spine was and they won't crack me anymore, claiming that it could fracture a rib - but they've been cracking me for the last 2 months.
So now what do I do? Has all this back cracking, neck snapping, etc been a waste of my time? Did they make me worse than I was before? Who should I go see about this twist in my back that makes my ribs pop out of place so often? Should I demand my money back from this place?
