Re: Question about chiropractor
I'm a chiropractor and I see these types of cases frequently. I handle these with kidd gloves and usually do a manual distraction technique. You can tell withing three of four treatments if there is going to be a positive effect. Sometimes it will feel sore the first or second time but should improve after that. The use of ultrasound is also a good adjunct. Ask around for a gently doc who isn't into the heavy-handed treatments. I've been seeing a chiro for years for a bum disc but when I blew the second one it was quickly evident that I needed more. A percutaneous disc-ectomy has been helpful but not a complete recovery.
