Re: [RC] Daughters head injury on horse - Ed and Wendy Hauser

"I think that a good physical therapist does much more for most
back/neck problems than a chiro.  jeri"

I have to second that..  In the late '70's I developed back problems.  After
9 months and a number of chiro's who could give symptomatic relief but no
cure, I found a good sports medicine orthopaedist.  One exam, a prescription
to the physical therepist, and a year of exercises and my back has been good

The keys are:

1. Sports medicine.  Ordinary doctors don't believe in PT because so many of
their patients lie and say they have been doing their exercises when they
haven't.  Sports med. Drs. know, because their motivated patients follow
their advice, that PT works.

2. Time.  PT does not work instantly.  You may find 3-6 months of work for
large benefit, a year or more for maximum effect.  It is like LSD in horses.
