The good chiropractor I saw a few times for various injuries did not provide temporary relief. It was permanent, lasting relief. I wish he hadn't retired.

Try what you will, but one hour of chiropractic help is way better than multiple visits to an MD, especially if the only other options are narcotics or surgery then narcotics. Do a little research, there is likely a well-respected and reviewed chiropractor around. It certainly won't hurt.

I'd say "modern" medicine is just as guilty as many chiros are with this. A lot of medicine is geared towards putting you on a pill the rest of your life that is only dealing with masking the symptoms and not the root cause.

There are a lot of different treatments that chiropractors may offer. My girlfriend has been going to a new chiro who after 4 treatments referred her to a new chiro because they were only temporary relief and refused to keep treating her. Any good chiropractor will want to take x-rays or at least look at old ones before adjusting you.

She had gone to normal doctors and specialists for the kind of pain she had and they only offered pills and surgery or dismissed her as just crazy. She went to a chiropractor who had her tested for food allergies. It turned out she was incredibly intolerant to gluten and somewhat to dairy. Eliminating those from her diet helped her with so many problems but there are still a few more she is battling with.

As for your original back problem I'd try simple physical therapy or even swimming before doing anything more serious.

I was suffering from the same problem, In morning my back suffers same pain. I think the idea of visiting chiropractor is not good idea, after visiting them your pain will be worsened. If you ask me, I will suggest taking some good sound sleep and change your mattress, buy a recliner for you. Some changes require will be Side sleeping is best. Firstly visit a doctor and take some medication as prescribed by the doctor. You have to change your sleep pattern and for some time, stop the heavy duty works. Rest doesn't take tension all things will be alright

While I appreciate Lewis's input and common sense cures, I might suggest a visit to your doc before investing in Serta and Lazyboy.

While rest and some motrin can help with soreness not related to injury, the risk/reward ratio for back problems doesn't fall in favor of dismissal. If your back is injured the risk of lifelong pain and problems is real. Don't except pain meds as an answer to your issues. Insist your doctor follow a diagnostic pathway that is supported by best practice.

Rest your painful back, decrease the swelling with ice and NSAID's. Stretching and strengthening your core should be the next step if the pain is gone. If pain persists, see your doctor.

I've battled back pain for many years. Switching to foam mattresses did help me quite a bit, but there are a lot of other triggers. Certain shoes will always give me back pain. Usually the ones with a ton of cushioning, although it can be hard to pin down the exact cause. I usually have to throw out or sell 50% of the shoes I buy because they hurt my back and it'll never stop until i stop wearing them.

And when it comes to disc golf, I just have to make sure I warm up, and focus on follow through. Warming up is a big deal for back pain.

I'm super curious what the bot will recommend for back pain. How can they create an account specifically to bring back a 5 year old thread on back pain, set up the product with ANOTHER new account, and then not come through?? DON'T LEAVE ME HANGING

Listen, I am searching for a forum where I can share my pain and my experience with my chiropractor and I know this thread is old but it is related to my problem. If I comment on an old thread it doesn't mean I am a bot I am just helping that person and you can see here people are commenting on my reply. So please be polite. Don't make fun of anyone.

There are plenty of things you can do for curing your back.
1. Do some regular exercises.
2. Some sort of stretching.
3. Join the yoga classes.
4. Avoid excessive sitting.
If problem persists visit a doctor, Ping me if you want any other help.
