Chiropracty sucks

Well, maybe not sucks, but I'm not convinced that it helps.

My back's been bothering me ever since I threw it out a few weeks ago. And my wife's been bugging me the entire time to go to the doctor. I've been hesitant. While initially I was in great pain, I thought that things would get progressively better. I just needed to give it some time. But man, a lot of time has passed.

So I broke down. I'll go to the chiropracter. Let's see what he has to say. The chiropracter said he's not sure what's wrong and referred me to an back specialist.

I have had back problems long enough to know what's coming. Hmm, we're not exactly sure what's wrong here. You probably sprained something. The X-rays are inconclusive. All those tests that your insurance only pays 80 percent of? We're still not sure exactly what's wrong. Take it easy. Here are some really good pain meds. Go on a diet. Lose weight.

While all this may be true, I don't need a doctor to tell me any of this stuff. I've been told it all before. Bastards.
