If there’s one thing chiropractors are good at its fixing back pain. I had the experience of being in a pretty bad car accident a few years ago and I hurt my low back and my neck. My neck was sore after the accident but my back was actually painful. I had a hard time dressing myself for weeks. The pain didn’t really start in until the day after the accident so I went to my medical doctor and was told that it was to be expected. He gave me 3 prescriptions before I left his office. One for a pain reliever, one for a muscle relaxer and an anti-inflammatory.
I filled them all and they didn’t really help. I suppose they knocked me out and made me loopy so I didn’t think about the pain as much but as soon as they wore off the pain came right back. So it wasn’t fixing anything, it was just covering it up. So I decided to try chiropractic for the first time. I was little nervous but I was in so much pain I was ready to try anything.
Well, after only 2 treatments I was feeling quite a bit better and that chiropractor did more for me in 2 visits than the medications had done in 2 weeks. That’s why anytime someone has low back pain I tell them to go see a chiropractor.
