I've had various periods of extended back pain that chiropractors can relieve by "adjusting" (a.k.a. "cracking") my spine in just a moment, providing immediate and long-term relief from pain sometimes in a single visit.
I've asked massage therapists if they can do that, and they decline.
When I see an MD for the exact same problem they may prescribe anti-inflammatories and seem more concerned with whether it's worth sending me to get an MRI, or whether I should just "give it time."
Are there any other professionals that will do the spinal adjustments for which chiropractors are known? If not, why?
