Just wondering about the frequency of chiropractors in India, as I don't remember seeing any. Do they have these?

Should have done some simple research first- Ran across a 2006 article titled something like 'Chiropractic finds its way to India', which indicated clearly it's a fairly new thing. Only found reference to 4 centers in India. 2 in Goa, 1 in Bangalore, 1 in Delhi.

Let me know if anyone knows of others.

I presume you mean a Western type or such qualified chiropractor. Not too many, or popular, I think.

You have a gamut of homemade Indian ones... from 'bonsetters' to others, some of whom have very good reputations. Doubt they have any formal degree. Many are scammers and touts.

In Bombay years ago, a Parsi (mentioning that because many have a typical way of talking, and more than a few of both sexes use profanity liberally) friend of mine described his visit to one of these quacks in Mahim- translated for polite company- 'The guy kicks you in the a$$ and your spine is fixed!!"

Back on topic, suddenly occured to me that nobody in my immediate family has been to a Doctor of Chiropractic in India.

I used to visit chiropractors a lot in the US. Was able to discontinue the use by simply lifting weights. This may or not work for you and I'm not trying to sell a weight training program. What I have found useful in my travels to non-chiropractic countries is a simple western massage or two. So get a good crack before you leave home and have a massage or two a week and hopefully, you'll be fine.

I haven't a clue about Indian chiropractors

--- but I know a man that does !

PM Jean-Philipe. He was full of praise for the guy who sorts out the back problems he sometimes gets from touring India ---on a motorcycle.

I think he said that the guy called himself a bonesetter --- but it sounded very professional, was not cheap, and for JP at least, was very effective.

Have you tried Thai Massage? It is like yoga, only it is done to you. Very effective for joint problems.

Always check your chiropractor is a "mixer", beware of any claims to treat anything other than back pain and be careful of neck manipulations; there's some evidence that chiropractic manipulations of the neck can lead to stroke. Very, very rare, but not a possibility you want to mess with, really.

In all honesty: a trained physiotherapist is just as good and comes with no stroke risks.

PS there is no evidence for the existence of "subluxations" of the spine.
Mosquitos suck.

Yes, I have my doubts about many of the claims that chiropractors put forward regarding the benefits to other regions aside from the back.

It's not for me, as I can self-manipulate most bones in my body. It's for Mrs. G, who has recurrent problems with her upper thoracic vertabrae. These are the ones between your shoulder blades, and are extremely difficult to adjust (though I've been trying to learn the standard adjustment for these, I'm not confident to try it yet, as it's fairly ....uh....assertive).

Still have only been able to find the four doctors I originally found. Will look into 'bonesetters' when I get there.

Thanks for the replies.
