I agree with josh, he is not saying chiropractors are bad, all he is saying is find a good one. And that not all posture problems are spinal issues, you may have to look else where, stomach, mentallity, diet. when someone comes on here and says that the person writing the article is wrong, that normally means they are one tracked minded.

It is VERY clear that the author of this article has done little to no research on the vast diversity of the chiropractic profession. Yes there is a place for some upper cervical technique chiropractors in the profession but there is no GOOD research that shows this form of spinal adjustment will have any effect on tilt of the pelvis. Finding a chiropractor with a sports fellowship would be the best bet in this case due to their unbelievable ability to work with soft tissue/ conective/ fascial structures in the kenetic chain that may cause functional misalignments. A c1-2 manipulation will not effect the tone of the muscles in your lower body for any time length of time, which will be needed in order to effect these postural misalignments.
