I hesitate to bring up the topic of Chiropractors after the last ridiculous thread, but I have a curiosity question to ask about one practice in particular. Before the first Abu Dhabi Pro Trials that was held in Florida, I had a super stiff neck from over training and playing a retarded guard. I was sponsored at the time by a chiropractor for MMA, so he told me to come in and he would work me out. He put me on the rollers, which was nice and just felt like a massage chair. He did an "adjustment" which just cracked my joints and felt cool but didn't do anything noticeable. But he also put muscle stims on my neck, and gave me a few minutes of shocks. This, I felt like at the time, did actually made a difference, and gave me some temporary relief. I could look over my shoulder again. Fast forward a year or two and I was in Brazil and strained my neck again. At the time, Cavaca's gym had a physio's office inside, and the physio himself was a Cavaca brown belt (now black). He treated me by putting needles in my neck like acupuncture, but then having stims attached to the needles. I can't remember if that helped or not. Is there any definitive proof of muscle stims helping to reduce inflammation, or otherwise promote mobility (even if temporary) in strained muscles, or is it completely a placebo? I am fine and healthy now, but just curious about the science behind it. I felt like it helped the first time, so did it, or am I just losing my mind? And before anyone says, if I felt better, then it worked... no.
