Hi Nancy, I find this an extraordinary request coming from a chiropractor without giving you any further suggestions but that is besides the point. What you have her do all sounds a very reasonable approach. I have often found that asymmetries like that are very difficult to resolve and can s...

Answered by Karin Singleton on Mar 04, 2016
