Should a chiropractor visit be painful?
Q:My back is out of alignment very bad. I have had xrays and my neck, upper and lower back and hips are all out. I have been visiting a Chiropractor for about 3 or 4 weeks now. My main complaint in my upper back. The last 2 or 3 time that I have gone, when she popps my upper back it hurts. Almost like I can’t breath. It is a sharp pain. It will be a little sore afterward. Is this normal?? The other parts that she pops do not hurt, like my lower back. And, it used to now hurt when my shoulder popped, but now it does.

Sounds like you need a second opinion. Try some type of Physical Therapist or Occupational Therapist.
