My sister has been paying for chiropractic services, that cost around $200-$300. Do they really work?

I looked it up online and learnt that they are not regulated. However, my sister says it helps her in her alignment. Is it just the placebo effect?

It depend on what issue she is suffering from and good chiropractors will give you their best and honest recommendations. I used to suffer from bad migraines almost every month but after trying out at a chiropractor once a week for almost 3 months, the frequency on the migraine had reduced. And I do see some patients had benefit in chiropractic and their quality of life had improved.

Chiropractors worked out for me in solving a long term pain problem that many docs couldn't put a finger on. That solved I now feel able to achieve alot more in my day.

I've stopped after 2 years primarily due to the cost of care.

Chiropractic is not based on medical science. But if it works for her...

My back was injured during NS. Prognosis after MRI was only a 50% recovery chance if I opted for surgery. So both my orthopedic surgeon & chiropractor communicated and formulated a more 'sustainable' plan to get me walking properly again. It's been 25 years since.

Nowadays I rely on 2 TCM guys for my occasional upkeep and my chiro.

$200-300 per session sounds like a very serious injury.

If she finds it useful, why not continue? It's somewhat like the western form of Tuina.

Does tuina crack your bones also? While I don't really believe in chiropractic services, I do like massages that crack your joints haha

Tui na is a manipulative therapy often used in conjunction with acupuncture, moxibustion, fire cupping, Chinese herbalism... It's massage with much more elements (pun not intended).
