I went in for an adjustment on June 26th because my lower back was hurting. Prior to my visit I was able to walk, drive and do my daily responsibilities even though I had just suffered a torn quad tendon and was wearing a leg brace. He did not even follow the standard practices for chiropractic care. He did acquire my prior medical records, have an X-ray done, have an MRI done, or warn me of the possible complications of physical manipulation and have me sign a consent form which is required. He also used and epidermal Electrodiagnostic tool that is not sanctioned by the Chiropractic rules. I asked him if I should have xrays or an mri and he said no. He visually inspected my back and said it was out of alignment. At this point he laid me on my side and forcefully physically manipulated my hip and lower back causing extreme pain. One week later I had to go to the emergency room because of all the leg pain, fatigue, sweating and physical sickness I was experiencing.The MRI showed I had a herniated S5 and L1 disc. I have been in extreme pain and have had extreme difficulty walking or driving anywhere since this visit. I've been to three neurologist and an orthopedic surgeon. I've gone to physical therapy, had 2 epidural injections, had a lumbar nerve block, and several other procedures. For the past 5 months my life has been ruined because of the herniations that occurred most likely from the physical manipulation that he did without knowing any prior history before doing those manipulations.Personally I think a responsible chiropractor would have xrays or MRI done prior to physically manipulating someone's back. I Expressed this to him and he didn't seem to agree for some reason. I would be very cautious in using this Dr if he suggest any physical manipulation of your back without prior knowledge of your medical history.Please be VERY cautious about letting anyone physically manipulate your back.

Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
