I always thought back trouble and Chiropractic involved “older” folks until, at 16, I suffered a lower back injury, and, at the insistence of my Dad, visited a Chiropractor for the first time.

Also, when I was sick with a fever, nausea, headache or the like, I was adjusted. That will seem weird I suppose because most people are used to drug therapy and surgery promoted within the medical model.
