Re: Should I stop going?

I'm from Ireland but I will look into how I stand legally. He tells me that my my spine needs to be physically realigned in order to releave stress on overworked muscles and to allow even distribution of weight. My spine is slightly off to the left but it does not look too bad. My neck is apparantly too far forward and need to be retracted and curved backwards at an angle that apparantly will better support my head. This is why I get cricks in my neck he says. When I stand in front of the mirror and retract my neck it seem my jaw sinks back into my neck and my head seems too far back. He has said that this is the position that he wants my neck to be in and insists that I am abnormal now. I am in a fix about what to do because I would really like to get back playing sport again and perhaps he may still help me as i've been going for two months only now. Maybe it will take longer for me.

I was a bit suspect when he whipped out the contract. He allowed me some time to think about signing it. His reason for the contract was that he expected 100% commitment from his patients to the program as he also gives 100% to his patients.

Can you tell me something about repositioning the neck into a more retracted position? Is there a chance I could look silly? Where in the neck will the new backwards curve be formed? I think may end up looking the same as when I pull my head and neck back like the backthrust of a chicken impression, if you know what I mean.

The Achillotrain has a viscoelastic heel-wedge to raise the heel for relief of Achilles tendon. A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
