Well, I have to admit that I used to fall in the camp of skeptics–that is until I had unbearable back and neck pain, and out of desperation went to see Dr. Soraya. I am so thankful that a particular friend suggested that I go to Dr. Soraya, because he does not require repeat visits. He only says (to all of his patients) that possibly you might need to come back, especially depending on the severity of the issue and how long the issue had been taking place. It is left up to you, the patient, to decide if you want to/need to come back. This is totally different than others in town (my son and daughter-in-law both went to another before switching who wanted them to be there a couple of times a week, for months on end. To make matters even worse, they felt less relief from that doctor than they do the one we all currently go to, who does not insist on repeat visits!). I guess the moral of the story is: If you get a chiropractor with whom you do not feel relief, and who wants you to be there over and over, switch! If I had gone to one of the less-effective chiropractors I would have dismissed chiropractic, but as it is I am totally pain-free and feeling great! I would whole-heartedly recommend that anyone at least try it!
