I used to see a great chiropractor once a month. I wish he hadn't moved out of my area. I never went to see him about curing anything, and he never made claims to me that he could cure anything. Also, he only made adjustments to my spine. To me these visits were general maintenance, not a panacea. I just feel much better when I have regular adjustments. I have more mobility. I breathe easier (which was a welcome surprise). Most importantly, I have less pain. I put these visits in the same mental bucket as taking my truck in for regular oil changes and tune-ups. I wish more chiropractors would approach their craft this way. I've seen and bailed on a few quacks since he left.

To the OP: if you're doing videos, anything that keeps my QL happy would be great. Thanks for putting in the effort.

Wasn't Chris Kilgus (Salient) a chiropractor? Lol, not comparing OP to him, just trying to uncover where the hate for chiropractors comes from.

I have a lot of medical doctors in my family and none of them like chiros at all.

Real doctors don't like it when not-so-real doctors refer to themselves as doctors.

I suppose they are also offended by people with PhDs in Math calling themselves doctors?

Like it or not (at least some) chirpractors have professional doctorate degrees.

No professional appreciates it when someone else introduces themself as "Doctor..." in a casual setting, whether they're a chiropractor, therapist, physician, mathematician, vet, etc. As a courtesy to others, introduce yourself by your first and last name unless someone is seeking your services in a professional setting. If you feel the need to announce to the world that you have a doctorate, you're not secure in your profession or your position in the hierarchy. I'd be willing to bet there are plenty of doctors on this website who have never once felt the need to refer to their credentials. We're all just disc golfers here, right?

My biggest gripe with instructional vids on the internet is that they're for the most part way too long. IMHO if I'm trying to learn about a particular stretch or movement I don't want to spend anymore than is absolutely necessary hearing about it. For instance I will pass on a 15 or even 10 minute vid that shows 5 different ways to stretch a particular muscle group and so on. Wading through the internet looking for a specific and specialized bit of info can be tiring enough without all the extra stuff.
