My Chiropractor wants to fix my neck but my health anxiety tells me he will break my neck or he will cause a stroke and I will die. What is your experience with health anxiety and chiropractors? thank you

      @Nekose I understand this probably doesn’t seem like a good answer for someone asking for help with medical anxiety, but I think your trepidation is warranted in this case. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6016850/

      For me I dislike the uncomfortable feeling if my neck is not aligned. I love going to the chiropractor. I feel like I get more anxious when my body is not right.

      I will never let a chiropractor do a cervical adjustment on me. There is a lot of peer reviewed evidence to suggest it is a medically unsafe procedure.
