People keep going back because they make you feel good by basically cracking and joint that can possibly be cracked in your body, leaving you feeling relaxed and light, but in the long run they have no long term benefits.
These "doctors" who practise chiropracting can often get their Certs in a 6 months to a year,
Whereas an orthopaedic consultant studies for nearly 12 years and costs just as much to see and actually knows what they are doing.
Sure in Ireland, chiropractors aren't even licensed to practise here on a medical grounds.
I depends where you are. In the US they are licensed and controlled and chiropractor is a restricted term. I would still see an orthopedist first because there are a lot of chiropractors who fully embrace woo and quackery.
