if you suffer any degenerative disc disease in the neck and try to have neck manipulations from a chiropractor it will give you more pain than you ever thought of before! I've been there, and I never experienced anything so bad afterwards as from a neck alingment/adjustment. The pain was excruitiating. For days. However, I do have degenerative disc disease. Info on the Atlas Profilax certainly sounds like it helps some and I am sure that it may. BUT you must be aware of your own individual situation and what your body can take before you try ANYTHING new. Just be very careful with the neck and spine and any treatments you get.
