    No, she didn't. But I was of the impression that a good massage is one that hurts, because that gets the blood flowing, breaks up scar tissue, etc.

    Well, I would also recommend a chiropractor for chronic problems. But yes, a good chiropractor will recommend you to strength training for rehabilitation and prevention. Remember; most injuries in training are preventable with good technique and proper conditioning. A good physical therapist of any sort will recognise that.
    Of course.

    A lot of things here in the Aus are covered by Medicare, and it's getting a bit better, now that things like psychiatry are starting to be covered. I think that's maybe why there isn't such a contraversy around Chiros in Australia- we don't exactly fork out an entire arm and leg to them for payments.

    I'm suspicious of chiropractors. I'd rather just use inversion.

    Frankly, that may be reason to be more upset about potential quackery, not less. Consider the UK, where tax money apparently goes to support homeopathy... If I were, by law, required to give money to that sort of people, rather than merely having them exist by virtue of the folly of the gullible, I'd be raising one hell of a stink.
