Look into the qualifications of the service provider.
It's a computer-controlled procedure, and you're lying in a table in your stomach holding handles that you can let go. (i.e. safe.) So some providers think they can strap you in and walk away, and they just treat it as a profit-generating exercise with little pre-planning or follow up.
It works best when 1) they know how to determine whether it's for you, typically from X-rays or an MRI, 2) have a technician present most of the time (not every second) while you're being stretched, because the pulling can be manually adjusted if it's uncomfortable, and 3) follow up after the first few treatments and after the course of treatment.
One consequence of the 20 treatments is that you get a little taller. After each treatment you'll probably be pretty tired. (4 days/week, 5 weeks.)
If it works and you feel a lot better, there's a temptation to get much more active. Is best not to do more than walking. But if it works you'll be pain free.
My wife's first time was supervised by a doctor, and second time by a chiropracter. Both were good. The first time, it was pretty new and cost $4000. The second time: $800. Prices have come down. It pays to shop around.
We are at the very beginning of time for the human race. It is not unreasonable that we grapple with problems. But there are tens of thousands of years in the future. Our responsibility is to do what we can, learn what we can, improve the solutions, and pass them on. - Richard Feynman
