    I've seen bad chiros and good chiros. The one I'm seeing right now has helped tremendously.

    The hanging your head off the foot of the bed thing is essentially a free, at-home way of doing traction. Basically it will relieve some of the pressure on your neck and let muscles/nerves stretch out some. It's totally legit and has helped me in the past.

    Good to know, thank you. He suggested a few minutes with shoulders and head off the bed, then a few more minutes with shoulders on the bed, neck still off the end.

    Do you just let the head dangle? or support it with muscles?

    Dangle. With shoulders on, this is similar to cervical traction. With shoulders off the bed as well, you are getting some traction through the thoracic and lumbar.

    Just saw a chiro/physical therapist today that reads Tnation and likes Brett Contreras. Turns out my upper back problem is from a lack of scapular stability and a weak ass serratus anterior.

    i rmember kunk posted numbers once and somebody called him out on it said its not physically possible and challenged to produce video as evidence. it took like a month to get a video posted and it was only sent privately. apparently it was too blurry or at a bad angle or something so we never found out if it was real

    I don't know about kunk but it is definitely possible: [VIDEO][/VIDEO] I don't understand why you guys want to compare charly and kunk so bad though.

    Yeah, some of those numbers are insane.
    Dips with three 20 kg plates? BB curls with 90 kg? He curled as much as I DL'd for my last set today :embar:
