Chiropractor vs. Physical Therapist, which is better for my condition?
I’ve posted on here before about the car accident I was in on October. I had whiplash and still felt the affects. It is better than before but I still feel a slight pain. I have been to the chiropractor for a month and a massage therapist but the relief was only temporary. I stopped going since I couldn’t afford frequent visits and because I have no insurance for it.
Anyways, I was always able to lift weights. I decided to try shoulder workouts and I guess that was a mistake. Ever since I tried it, I felt new slight pain when I lift my shoulders and kind of swing my forearm. I quit the shoulder workouts for two weeks now and it has gotten a tad better but the pain hasn’t gone. I also quit bench pressing and lateral pull downs from my workout.
Since there was nothing wrong with my bones in the x-ray, I was thinking that it was more of a muscle/tissue problem. Should I see a Physical therapist instead? Chiropractor cracked my bones and neck which scared the crap out of me.
