I suspect the issue isn't the car.
I have found many of the minor physical complaints I have had were able to be solved by a chiropractor visit, and I go fairly regularly now.
Insurance will cover a certain number of visits if you request a referral from your doctor, and say to your primary doctor you were moving a refrigerator or fell on ice. I get about 24 visits for a year, which lets me go every two weeks if I want. My cost is $17 per visit, and it's well worth it.
There after, you can just request more visits after they run out or they expire in December, by just saying I've had good progress and want to continue to go.
I'll mention minor complaints that I don't really think are a problem, like many repetitive nerve twinges in my left foot for instance, and he finds swelling around a certain vertebrae, cracks it at that point, and the issue is gone.
Normally, my back seems to curve into a C shape, so he pushes down 4 places on my back with me on my stomach from lower back to between my shoulder blades, and just about every one pops.
Then I roll onto my side, he grabs my knee and shoulder and he falls on them, and I walk out feeling an inch taller, it takes about 1 1/2 minutes tops, once he knows you.
Before we start, he puts me on a roller table that has kneading effect on your back, alternating up and down you back for about 10 minutes. First, he puts a formed bag of hot clay down on the table to help loosen the muscles up in my back that are tight due to them instinctively clenching due to misalignment. This lets them relax so he can move the bones causing the problems. They can be out of alignment in all directions; twisted in 1 of 6 possible ways.
Ask older people who they go to, chiros are like anybody else, there are schmos and there are good ones. People that talk bad about chiros haven't had a real issue and or haven't found a good one.
I've been in such bad shape before, I fall to my knees and can't hardly breathe due to impingement pain. I got the tractor/snowblower stuck one time and jumped off and shoved my hips into it while steering it and in gear, and later I was so bound up the pain was excruciating. This incident convinced me of their ability and importance of having regular adjustments done.
Times like this they will xray you to make sure you haven't done some actual damage before they try to adjust you.
They can fix you, if you ain't broken, but just out of place.
