I hurt my back a few years ago while moving some 27" CRTs up 3 flights of stairs at my old job. The next day I woke up and could barely move without significant pain. I made an appointment with a chiropractor in town and had to do what SDW described, go to a new patient orientation meeting, watch an anti doctor video, and talk with people who were patients that swore that if I went once a week, I'd lose weight, prevent illness, and overall be a healthy person.
I didn't buy into that guy's methods and found another chiropractor that actually helped fix my back. They used a combination of ice, heat, massage, and small adjustments and really seemed to know their stuff. They also didn't bad mouth medical doctors while I was in there. I wouldn't see the need to go to a chiropractor again unless my back was really hurting, but that's just me.
