    Default Physio or Chiro...???

    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?

    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!!

    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!
