the chiropractor was a waste of time and I hurt worse after. I tried PT and that made it worse. finally I went to a back Dr. who gave me a Stand UP MRI and I had a herniated disc. The pain was so bad that I would cry. I could not participate in any of my usual activities. People said don't do surgery. Well I tried all the options. My Dr. did surgery and I was traveling with my husband the next week. The next month I went on a trip to Europe. I still have 4 bulging discs so I need to watch it.
