I have been suffering from a sore back for the past week and I'm not sure who i should see about it. Does anyone have any idea whether I should try and see a physio or chiro first?

Physio or Chiro...???

Osteo works better for me than either of those

*Generally* speaking, a chiro is more bone/joint related whereas physio is more muscle/tendon/nerve....everyone has different opinions though on who's best
Osteo's claim to be both, which is why chiro's and physio's don't like them apparently!!

I would stick to physiotherapist personally.... Not a fan of chiro's

Physio has always helped me more than osteo or chiro.

I always go to the physio, but other people swear by osteos.
I think chiros are charlatans.

I'd definitely do physio! I had a crippling bad back that inhibited my movement and I couldn't walk properly. I endured this for ages - I am male remember, it's what we do - and finally went to the physio. Six visits and I haven't had back pain since! Just amazing! The massage can hurt like hell though, so keep that in mind! My physio was this cute, tiny young woman in her early 20's. I remember walking in thinking "Hello!" Little did I know that something so tiny could cause so much pain!
But, it was all worth it! Pain free movement! Ahhhhhh!
