According to an article in the peer-reviewed journal JMPT 1998 titled Structural Rehabilitation of the Spine and Posture: Rationale for Treatment Beyond the Resolution of Symptoms, " ...manipulation alone cannot restore postures body postures or improve an altered sagittal (sideview) spinal curve. Therefore, postural chiropractic adjustments, active exercises and stretches, resting spinal blocking procedures, extension traction and ergonomic education are deemed necessary(emphasis added) for maximal spinal rehabilitation."
Notice how it doesn't say "it might be good for you" or "possibly good for you". It says "necessary." So if your problems are determined to be structural, and they are causing you to lose the ability to do things you used to do, a structural solution is necessary......not just adjustments alone.
