    I went to a chiropractor for the first time before Christmas. I had a similar pain issue in my lower back/ sacrum area and I received the TENS then adjustments. It took 3 visits for the pain to completely subside. My lower back never really popped, but he would adjust my head/neck area and it made a loud pop. I was irrationally concerned that my head was going to come off! I’ve been very happy with the results and would definitely recommend trying a chiropractor.

    I agree that the process was creepy, but it worked!

      That’s great that it worked for you! I am hopefully it will work for me. I have my first PT appointment this week and I hope the combo of those two things will make this go away!

    Oh my that s*cks! Sorry to hear you are injured.

    Lying on the couch is never a good idea with an injury. I miss walking though in the lists you can do, usually here they always recommend swimming and walking with injuries.

    Hope you feel better soon and quit the Ibuprofen as soon as you can because it’s addictive, I know from experience.

      Oh yes, I know the addictiveness of ibuprofen!!!

    Nertz, just when things were getting all better! At least you aren’t completely down for the count, so that’s good!

    Doing some weight lifting is a good idea to help alleviate back pain. I know that using my body always helps me loosen up, and feel more relaxed. Exercise is the greatest healer that I’ve ever found in this life. I am glad that I regularly take the time to do this, it makes me feel much more fulfilled.
