Mary, I do see a chiropractor from time to time, but the best thing I do for myself and my poor bad back is get a massage on a regular basis. When you make your appt. make sure the therapist does therapeutic massage, not just foo-foo, make you feel better, massage. There is a big difference. My daughter is a massager therapist. Unfortunately, she lives a couple of hundred miles away. Good luck, I know it is not fun to have an aching back all the time.

Love your pic, it's nice to put a face to the name.
YES I go to the chiropractor weekly! It helps me tremendously! sometimes I even go twice per week.
Give it a try, and let me know what you think.
I also get a massage weekly as well.

you know my back has been killing me for 5 years. I've had bone density tests and scans and nothing ... nothing. Finally I couldn't stand it again and asked my rheumatologist for an MRI. We found a big fat cyst pressing on my lower back. I'm bummed, this is the first time I've had any Ob/Gyn involvement with my MCTD. Dr. mentioned inflammation in fallopian tubes and uterus.. I'm thing DUH (i have it every where else). I'm still waiting to hear about ob gyn appt. wish me luck.. any one have stories? xoxox jeanne
