This page will chronicle the lost buildings, forgotten streets and alleyways, and defunct businesses which once called Spondyville their 'home'.

First up: "Backbreakers",
(a spinal manipulation clinic.)
The Backbreakers Clinic was a family business, which, surprisingly, lasted for almost 30 years on the outskirts of Spondyville, but which finally, (and mercifully), closed its doors for good in April of 1981. 

The business was run by the Bellicose brothers, Billy and 'Bix'.  Their woeful ignorance of human anatomy in general, and Spondylitis in particular, was stunning, to say the least.  Their whereabouts now, are unknown.

For many years, the business was headquartered in a building, located just off Subluxation Square and the corner of Quackworthy Rd., which offered a silent comment on the services provided within.

Their slogan was:
"Backbreakers, it's more than our name,
it's what we've done to you since 1952."

People with back pain often seek relief from spinal manipulation as performed by chiropractors.  Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) is a disease which often can fuse the neck and spine.  This makes having chiropractic adjustments a very bad idea.  Trying to force a spine whose vertabrae are fusing can be extremely painful and have possibly dire circumstances, including fractures and, worst case scenario, paralysis.
