Hey everyone! I'm 23 and have been suffering from chronic back pain for several years. I've spoke to my doctor on several occasions regarding this. He wouldn't give me anything to take for the pain but instead sent me for a massage to see if that would help. Once there the masseuse told me she recommended I go see a chiropractor as to her it seemed like my hips weren't in line. So I followed her recommendation and went to the chiropractor. Since then, he told me that it was indeed that my hips were more or less 'squish', which could be due to one leg being shorter then the other or it could be because of bad posture. So I went every week for a couple months and it seemed like my back pain was gone. A week after the chiropractor give me the all go and said I didn't need to go back and see him, the pain came back. And since then it's been a daily struggle dealing with this pain. This pain can be excruiating at times, and then other times it just seems like a dull ache, but it is ALWAYS there. If I'm going on a trip and need to be sat in a vehicle for even only a couple hour drive, my back is killing me! The only relief I find at times is essentially 'cracking' my back, I turn side to side and the cracking does not sound healthy, as well as just bending to the left and right it does the same thing. I know it's not healthy, but it's the only thing I can go on right now that actually reliefs some of the pressure. Any suggestions on what could help this pain besides seeing a chiropractor every week for the rest of my life?
