How do I find a chiropractor without the "woo" - ?

I like how I feel after a chiropractic adjustment, but I am deeply tired of the offices I have gone into where the whole place is like a wellness cult. How do I find a chiropractor in Chicago that's gonna make me feel better without all the woo? [more inside]

Are there any websites that lets you explore the human anatomy in 3D?

I'm looking for a low-cost app or site where you can explore the muscular structure, how they attach to the skeleton, isolate a muscle by turning on/off other muscles, etc. My chief aim is for fitness purposes so I can understand my own body better before my chiropractic visits. Book or other learnig tool recommendations are welcomed! [more inside]

Chiropractic Manipulation of the Ear

My wife wants to take our 9 month old to the chiropractor to have his ear manipulated to address ear infections. From what I understand, this would involve tugging/manipulating the ear itself, and not the C-spine. Hope me with science? [more inside]

What did I do to my back?

Help! I think I seriously messed up my back. About a week ago, I jumped on a giant indoor trampoline and since then my back has been really bothering me. It's my mid-back, hurts most when I walk, run, or jump. It doesn't feel like the muscle. Should I see a regular doctor? Chiropractor? Is there any home care that I should be doing? I am worried that it's not improving. Thanks so much!

Back walk massage in Tokyo?

I've got a bad back and neck from playing piano and double-bass a large part of my life, and lately working a lot at the computer. Since I'm in Tokyo for another couple of days or so, I thought I'd ask around for the absolute best massage in town, that also won't break the bank. (It's a pretty sizable traveler's bank, but I'm not rich.) I've seen the (in?)famous massage where a woman (men are too heavy me guess) walks on the back and cracks the joints. Is that something recommended? Looks darn cool! :)

Extreme neck pain

Neck pain. Sharp stabbing neck pain, you know the kind you get when you sleep in a odd postion and wake up with a "crick". I woke up this morning with such pain, and now I can't turn my head to the right at all. This has happened before, but never to this degree. I sneezed earlier and thought I was going to cry. What's the remedy? Wait it out? Heating pad? Ibuprofen?

Back Pain

Back Pain. How do I get rid of it? I've tried changing my chair, the level of my keyboard, what side of the bed I sleep on. I've been stretching. Nothing works. I am in agony. I've never had back pain like this before. I've always had back discomfort, aches -- that sort of thing -- but never debilitating pain. I'm only 22. What should I do?
