Should I stop going?

I have been going to a chiropractor for the last two months and have been recieving three adjustment every week. I have lower back pain and neck pain which I have acquired from playing too much sport.

Here is what he does; I ly face down on the table with my head angled upward and he pops the head part of the table down. He also has me ly on my side and twists my spine to align it more to the right. I lie face down and he presses on my sacrum to correct a subluxation and the table pops down.

I have not noticed any improvement in my symptoms, rather I have a pain in a new area in my sacrum (tail bone I think)and I have gotten a little worse everywhere overall.

He has made a drawing on the x-ray of my neck of how he intends the position of my neck to be after a year of adjustment. It seems lke my neck will be in a severely retracted state and I will look like a goofball. I think my head position looks normal put he insists it is too forward.

I have paid 2500 euro already and signed a contact so if I decide to leave I may be forfeiting all my money. That is a lot to me as I am unemployed. I think I am going to tell him this week or perhaps give the treatment another couple of weeks. I would be grateful for any advice on what I should do.
