Because you are releasing endogenous morphine into the body, i.e., endorphins. Also, correct a spinal misalignment helps the nervous system function better, decreases stress hormones like cortisol, and improves blood/CSF circulation. Who wouldn't want that on a regular basis?!

Easy. Get pre-requisites completed. Then go to 4 years of doctorate training at any accredited chiropractic college. There, you will gain the knowledge and practical skill to be able to ascertain where subluxations exist (versus compensating vertebra(e)) as well as the ability to determine if, when, how the offending vertebra(e) should be adjusted and which division of the Autonomic Nervous System will be therefore facilitated or inhibited as a result. Excited for you to join this great profession in the future!

What is wrong with me? Shins and hips

I would stop eating meat, dairy, and gluten. Patients never want to do this when in fact it is the very thing that needs addressed. There is no sense applying this treatment and that therapy if the fuel going into the body is pro-inflammatory. You are putting out one fire while starting another. I would begin cryo-tube sessions twice weekly for 4 weeks, then down to once weekly, then down to once monthly.

I would continue the chiropractic indefinitely because it is not a treatment it is a lifestyle -- you'll only really benefit once you commit to keep your spine and nerves in line and online for the rest of your life -- this is no different than brushing your teeth everyday -- except your spine and nerves are more important than teeth, and are irreplaceable vs. a tooth which is totally and completely expendable.

* Consider finding a chiropractor with decompression therapy -- you may have lower back nerves that need decompressed and those nerves do in fact supply the hip/shin areas. Just a thought. I see hundreds of patients every single week in my clinic and this therapy helps significantly with "pains that just won't go away."

Lastly and most importantly, I would forgive anyone in my life that I am holding grudges against, including yourself. This is extremely powerful. No one wants to complete this task either -- if there is guilt, shame, anger -- it needs to be diffused, balanced, neutralized.

* Repeat the following: "I forgive you, I thank you, I love you."
* Repeat this one also: "I live up to my highest standards with love and with joy."
* Many times shin pains are due to a person thinking they are not living up to the ideals that they think they should...do you feel as if you are not meeting someone's standards, even if it's your own?

Conscious competence they call it, meaning being aware of your posture -- that is the first simplest step. Next, sit at your desk nice and tall and adjust monitor to the perfect position and then don't touch it ever again. If you can't see the monitor then you need to sit up straight! Also, do this in your car -- adjust the mirrors to fit you when you have perfect posture. If you can't see out of the mirror, your posture is going bad. Also, look into "extension exercises for better posture" on YouTube.
Good luck!

Is it bad to pop your fingers?

There are no studies that show that. Twisting the finger joints to make them pop is no good -- just a light pull on each finger is plenty. Nothing with rotation or excessive force. Respectfully, Dr. READ MORE
