Lower back pain
I had surgery in June 08 for herniated disks. Took some time to heal, but started having lower back problems after a fall 13 months later. One disk was removed and two others laser. I started going to a chiropractor in Feb.2010 and it has helped relieved my pain. Treatments were 3 times a week and now down to every 3 weeks. I do routine exercises,walking, and using an inversion system. It all seems to be working to help me, and I have lost 20 lbs. I got vertigo this week, fell slightly and caught myself before hitting the floor. Yesterday the vertigo is improving, but now I have severe back pain. My chiropractor said that I will likely have to have treatments the rest of my life, but I should have significant improvement within two years with regular treatments. When, I re injury myself is this delaying my significant improvement, and what can I do other than what I am doing to get well. I feel like there is no hope for me, and a burden to my daughter, whom, is caring for me. I have had to move and live with my daughter in order to get the care and treatments I need.
