The initial fee for a chiro can be pricey, but the weekly visits usually aren't too much and they are often willing to work with people who don't have insurance.
I am seeing a chiro every two weeks. Weekly would probably be better, but I'm not sure we have the extra $200 a month for that! i think I would probably be on bedrest right now if I hadn't started seeing my chiro. By the end of the day I am basically limping around trying to find ways to not get up, or making strategies in my head for taking the fewest steps.
