I'm Gonna Crack Your Bones

Remember how I said that my back had been killing me and I was taking massive pain killers to deal with it? Well, it turns out there's a reason for my back pain. I went to the chiropractor yesterday for an initial consult and x-rays and went back today to see what the good doctor found out.

Turns out that my right hip is out of alignment. It's actually higher (somewhere between a half inch and an inch and a half; can't remember what he said), causing my spine to get a bit of a sideways curve to it and also putting pressue on the nerves in my lower back.

This means that I will be starting chiropractic therapy again. (I saw a chiropractor a few years ago for a loss of curvature in my neck. I mentioned this to my new doctor and he said that it's looking good, so whatever the last doctor did obviously worked.) I'll be getting adjustments for three times a week for three weeks and then twice a week for three weeks (another freaking $250 in doctor's bills, give or take. Will I ever be done with doctors or hospitals?). We'll then re-evaluate and see what needs to be done next.

I also get to wear little lifts in my shoes, which makes me feel like a total dork. Hopefully this will help it stop hurting, though, which is the important thing.

Ouch! I hope your back is feeling better soon.

As I mentioned earlier, my right hip has been higher than my left all my life, and we discovered it probably 20-25 years ago. I'm supposed to wear lifts in my shoes, but I never have. It is what causes my lovely knee pain in my right knee. Fortunately, it doesn't cause a lot of back pain. Yet.

Do the exercises. They will help. That, and time. Plus make sure you get up out of the desk chair and move at least once an hour.

I hope you feel better soon! :D

I feel your pain, man. I really do. I'll likely have chronic back pain for the rest of my life until a doctor decides that I'm a candidate for surgery (no one wants to operate on an almost 26 year old). the cortisone injection I got for my SI joint worked, though, and I haven't had any of the pain from that in several weeks!
