    Thanks for the recommendation....

    Unfortunately I live in the City, and even though I have jeeps they are rented alot of the time.... So Cabarete is just too far for me to go... I would be a cripple if I went in a carito!!!

    Thanks again!!!

    Dr Frank in Costambar,- was an orthopedic surgeon till he had an accident,-very skilled in all things bone related. Many of us travel from Cabrera to see him tho he comes to Rio San Juan every month or so. My husband practically crawled in to see him with severe back pain,- fixed him in 2 visits,- now he still goes for "tune-ups". Dr frank is European trained (Swiss I believe) and speaks excellent English.

    Cute joke, but a good chiropractor is worth his weight in gold. Doctors mask pain, but chiropractors actually get rid of it.

    Yes, they posses magic wands that the medical community does not have access to. They would never take advantage of the infirm and uneducated.

    Many of the "medical profession" will refer patients to Ciros. Back in the Dark Ages some Chiros claim to be able to cure cancer, aid in digestion, improve erections etc. Most modern Chiros provide joint and muscle manipulation to relieve pain with great success, they aren't really that successful at curing the underlying issue Think of them in the same manner a you would a pain control injection, relief of the symptoms

    Osteopaths often suffer from same misconception, they actually receive further training them MD's in the methods of high velocity manipulation

    I never believed much in acupuncture or herbal medicine, but can billions of people all be wrong?

    If standing over a septic tank naked while saying 27 hallelujahs gets rid of kidney stones, I'll give it a try next time i have an attack

    I fear it is the beginning of the end for me, Iím agreeing with Fish
