Trying out My Philadelphia Chiropractor to Avoid Going Under the Knife

January 7th, 2017

I have never strained my back or fallen and twisted anything. I never have even broken a bone. The worst thing I have had happen was a few skinned knees as a kid and a couple of sprained ankles. I have signed other people’s casts, but I am happy to have never needed one. I could not explain why I suddenly needed to see a Philadelphia chiropractor when I reached my 40s. My doctor did the imaging starting with x-rays that showed nothing that should be causing my back pain. When it got worse, I had to have a CT scan. There was some early indications of some slight discogenic disease, but not anything to any degree that would explain my discomfort. A later MRI revealed some areas that might be beginning to cause some nerve impingement.

There was no way I was having surgery after talking to the surgeon and asking for facts. Positive results of back surgery are not guaranteed, and the actual results for what I was looking for seemed to widely vary. Before I would let one medical professional render me unconscious and another one cut into my spine with a knife, I wanted higher odds of becoming pain free. They could not give me the odds I wanted, so I opted out of surgery. I never really thought of trying chiropractic, but it worked for me.

Instead of going to my Philadelphia chiropractor with any preconceived notions of chiropractic effectiveness, I just went in to see what it could do. I let them do their thing, and I was kind of surprised at the immediate relief from some of the pain. I kept up the recommended therapies provided by my Philadelphia chiropractor, and my back no longer troubles me like it did. I think for folks like me there is an option for treatment for back pain other than having surgery.
