It wasn't messed up. Chiropractors are charlatans; all backs creak
like that, it's normal. I am sure most believer fervently in what they
do, but it's bogus.

Acupuncture cures nothing, *but* the transient placebo effect does
provide pain relief. Needles stuck in at random will do this, though,
as will fake needles, sugar pills and saline injections. It's just
flim-flam. All the stuff about "meridians" and "qi" is nonsense.
