I have rotated vertibraes in my lumbar spine. I was told by 3 physicians that I will live with this pain for the rest of my life. Two physicians told me that I would be able to see a good chiropractor a couple of times and should be set.
I went into some pretty bad spasms the other day after getting a sinus infection and body aches. Went to the ER.
What course of action so you recommend? The pain is mostly spinal pain. Standing for long periods of time hurts my spine in the lumbar area. Laying down also hurts and I have to arch my back for around 20 seconds before everything starts to stretch out but sleeping is usually pretty uncomfortable.
I'm a security officer at a mental institution and my job is pretty difficult for me but I make good money. Please halp.
>>719727207 Definitely some re-alignment can help. However, depending on how long you have had a certain alignment, re-alignment can be more difficult. Schedule a meet with a local chiropractor and they can do a check-up on you. They can measure tension in your joints with a little device that measures nerve temperature. Pretty neat.
>>719727312 Definitely meet with a chiropractor to help you with this. Spinal issues can be very complicated depending on the factors that play into it. I don't know enough about your case to make a definitive claim, but getting it checked out can't hurt.
>>719727500 Sorry, should add that it IS IN FACT a factor, but is not definitive. A common analogy made to counter this is that the argument that Vertebral Subluxation causes disease is similar to saying being a couch potato causes heart disease. It VERY WELL MAY have a role in it, but it's not by any means the biggest playing factor.
>>719727442 Thanks man. I'm getting hooked up with a new doctor in a week or so and I'm going to have to schedule a few tests for me like x-rays and such. Then hopefully before mid February I'll start making a treatment plan with a local sports chiropractor that I get unanimous recommendations from.
Meet with a chiropractor for some good exercises. There are common exercises that you can find with a quick google search, but for the most part actually getting a diagnosis and advice from that diagnosis will always be superior.
>>719727921 Wrong. Orthopedic doctors treat general pain, and will usually refer you to a chiropractor for specific (for example) spinal re-alignment. They can assess better than we can though of course.
>>719728391 Usually hit them with the ol' "good girl" or "good boy" when they are like 18 or younger. Other than that I just say "well done" or "perfect" even though I still know they are horribly fucked up. Part of the treatment is making them FEEL better as well. :)
>>719728630 You'd be surprised by the wonders a good re-alignment of the atlas or spine can do for some people with horrible kyphosis and thoracic pain. Seen people go from hopeless to normal in just short of months.
>>719728790 Had a kid who was literally hunched over like the wicked witch of the west and went to normal in 5 months. It was just in time of his graduation as well. Touching moment really, always have kept in touch with him.
Greetings OP, my hip makes clicking sounds every time I turn my leg. I slipped on a Fantabuloso soaked floor at work nd landed right on my right cheek. Any way to fix this by myself? Like.. fully functioning, just this annoying ass click in my hip.
And no, do not try to re-align your hip by yourself. I clearly don't know all of the details of your case, but get a meet with a chiropractor and tell him everything. He can even get an xray of your hip and pinpoint exactly where your problem is, and help you out through either medication or physical therapy.
My biggest advice is don't let it go left alone for long.
>>719730405 get a midget to stand on your lower back and punch your hump repeatedly twice a week. When the midget says it's starting to get better, go down to once a week, then to once every other week.
>>719730405 Re-alignment, you could be developing kyphosis. It can get pretty bad if left un-treated. Get it done professionally though. Some people fuck themselves up bad when they try to do alignment on themselves if they aren't trained.
>>719726767 I have TMJ (locked open). I haven't met a Chiropractor who's willing to force it back in place. They all want to do focus on spine, not direct mandibular manipulation, but that did help with the pain. Been like this 6+ months.
>>719731481 Understand that we are actual doctors. I have a doctorate from a Chiropractic school and explaining shit in layman terms to shitheads all day really makes me wanna kill my self. Some chaps are alright though. Others, not so much.
>>719731656 Right, but I'm just wondering if it will fuck up my spine alignment or anything. I twist pretty good to pop my whole lower back, then hook my shoulder blades over the back of my chair and rotate my shoulders back to pop my upper back
>>719731932 Thanks. I'll do that soon, but just in general about cartilage: Why might tmj for the first few months lock and unlock, and then one day lock permanently? Does cartilage adhere at times and other times become loose? If so, what can a person with TMJ do to make things less tight or more malleable?
>>719726767 When I was a kid, I had to carry heavy loads on my back on a daily basis (don't ask...). Now my spine is litteraly S shaped. It takes a considerable effort to stand straight and to conpensate, one side of my back is more muscular than the other.
I am 24 now, is there any way I can still straighten up my backbone ? Thanks
>>719732518 Hmm, I did research this before going to a Chiro, and the symptoms didn't seem to match up. He confirmed it was TMJ, but wouldn't treat it directly. I'll just have to see a Maxillofacial specialist. Thanks!
it's my personal opinion that these Real Dr's your referring to have their foots so far up in their ass in elitism in their vows of do no harm, they don't seem to realize that means their supposed to be standing up the lies and poisons the pharmaceutical companies are pushing down our throats not help them do it. you know what I hate the most about Medical Dr.s? they are fucking Hypocrites. all the Woman they lie to about needing C sections, all the experimental surgeries just for a paycheck, completely ignoring the patient, doing just what they wanna do because they think they are better then everybody with a booboo because it doesn't happen to them because they are fucking gods gift.
I have this weird pain in my foot where the bone is... It hurts immensely. It's right below where my big toe's cushion like thing is. It feels like a bone but I'm not sure... What do I do? It really hurts bad. Like, REALLY bad.
I turned my gf into one of those fold-able lawn chairs and fucked her till she passed out. Now her back hurts and I can't unfold her. Any tips on which season I should prop her up at the beach under an umbrella?
I used to click my back all the time, by leaning backwards pressing into and arm or by twisting my whole body whilst stood up using a wall for leverage. But now I can only get slight relief by leaning forwards as I can not longer get it to pop by twisting or leaning backwards... how fucked is my back? and how can i go back to my back cracking ways?
My girlfriend often returns from work (desk job) with pain in the small of her back. Like a horizontal band across her lowest concave part of her back. What might be causing this and how could I help alleviate this?
