I understand what you are saying and don't worry about feeling frustrated, I understand that too. I've had 3 herniated disks in my neck and before attempting to have surgery (which no one ever claims works anyways) I went to a chiropractor. After 6 months of weekly treatement I'm finally feeling better. I can stand up straight and I don't need pain meds to control the pain. I still go bi-weekly for adjustments, but I'm slowly getting better. I don't know if that helps, but I wanted to tell you what helped me.
