    I used to get similar pain. I went to a chiropractor which helped alot and she gave me exercises to help strengthen my lower back, its slowly getting better.

    I've never been to a chiropractor, not sure what the difference between a physio and chiro is..... the chiropractor sounds a little scary with all that neck cracking and stuff
    I will definitely look into doing something, I've also got pain killers now but even though I'm able to stand straight (no longer have to be bent over) I'm guessing the meds are not fixing the actual problem. I have been doing some very light yoga for lower back pain (just YouTube, but I'll have to sort out some professional help, still finding mobility a problem so will give it a couple days)

    I have a disc in the lower back that swells too, and I still have issues with it if I bend over a lot (picking things up, doing laundry etc). The best treatment I found was chiro (it's not all cracking I swear - very gentle and for me, amazing result) and I have to squat down to pick things up. That stops the strain on the disc and lets it heal itself.

    I really thought I'd be back to normal by now, while I am able to move around the house ok, it's still difficult to put socks/shoes on, I think I may be over doing it a little during the times I'm feeling a little better, trying to take it easy though.

    My chiro doesnt do any bone cracking and does a few stretches i assume would be similar to a physio.

    Default Lower back pain! Help!!

    So I just got back from my vet, who because of me still looking very stiff insisted I give his chiropractor a call, he says she is a miracle worker.
    For those who have used a chiro, is it supposed to be painful during the treatment? And is it basically just a massage?
    I'm really not usually a sook, I'm just scared of her making it worse, as dh is away, I have to be able to do- basically everything, and I have a long haul flight coming up I have to be able to sit through.

    ETA: to clarify I wasn't there for myself- I was taking the dog

    Most likely you will leave the appointment actually being able to walk and move without pain! That's how I find it, anyway. They use a little thing called an activator which kind of clicks into the areas of your spine that are out of alignment, and then massage the area a bit to loosen it up (though they all have different techniques, that's what mine does). Totally painless, my 5 year old has had adjustments before (after an accident) without complaint. I hope it helps - the only negative to chiro IMO is the cost.

    I was very confused about why you went to the vet about your back pain glad you edited the post!
