Would a chiropractor help?

Hey! A little over 2 years ago I had surgery done. It was a laminectomy and discectomy on my L4-L5. I've been to PT after surgery. Saw the surgeon a couple months after surgery and I currently see a pain management doctor. I'm still in a lot of pain. I want to find another pain management doctor because the one I see now pretty much doesn't listen to the pain I have. It's in one ear and out the other. I have pain in my lower back, upper back, and also in my hips and legs. I spoke to a friend about a chiropractor and I'm wondering if anyone else that has this type of pain or had this type of surgery found that a chiropractor helped with the pain. It's hard going day by day with pain and I'm only 29 years old. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!


  • I have had surgery on my lower back. Prior to surgery the chiropractor did not help my lower back much. My neck is a different story. The Chiropractor has helped my neck. I have not had any injections or surgeries on my neck as a result.
    Post surgery, my Chiropractor has helped my back a lot.
    Your story could be different depending what is causing you the pain.
  • I think I will do back and neck exercises for the rest of my life. I don't want things to get worse than they need to be.
