I have some herniated discs in my neck and am finding it my range of motion is a little limited in turning my neck on one side. I am going to a reputable doctor, and the adjustments are improving my necks mobility and my posture too.

One of my friends told me I am wasting my money and these adjustments can be dangerous. I am 54 years old and have a bit of osteopenia starting. I am on Reyataz, Norvir and Truvada, am undetectable and my CD4 has ranged from 700-850

What is you take on the value/dangers of chiropractic adjustments? Thanks

Response from Dr. Henry

I have had numerous patients have some benefit from chiropratic care for neck/back problems though response varies from patient to patient. Assessment for osteoporosis is also recommended as well as informing your HIV specialist of the situation. KH
