I’m wondering – on a scale of 1-10, what does your back  feel like?

It is common for us to suffer some back discomfort and there are many times when you may feel like your back just needs a good crack?

Spinal manipulation is one treatment option for back pain. It’s a form of manual therapy that can help restore mobility to joints and muscles of the spine. Spinal manipulation is also used to treat some types of pain associated with the nerves that come out from the spinal cord.

However, it is a hugely debated topic on health professional world.

So today, I thought I would pass on my opinion.
