Gonna let the Chiropractor take another shot at this today! I'm praying I didn't blow out a disk or something bouncing around on our shitty roads in the big rig @ work.
My vacation starts this next Sat. I fear my 6 days snowboarding up north is in serious jeopardy!!!!
When it comes to this stuff, traditional western medicine is a giant turd, imo.
Get you some acupuncture. Go see an old chinese person with herbs and acupressure. I've had pretty serious back problems for 20 years and acupuncture is always my emergency plan. I try to not get it done when I don't need it, seems to have a stronger effect that way. Even most chiropractic shit is whack, pullin and pusshin on your body, pretty sure I can "uncorrect" any violent torque a chiropractor puts on my joints with 5 minutes on the couch....
