spinal arthritis and back pain

Started by brit1 on 01/06/2020 11:55am

I am a senior but in good health/slim/exercise/walk daily etc. Due to several horse riding accidents 30+ years ago I frequently have times when my back "goes out". I was seeing a chiropractor (has retired) who saw me every few months and most of the time my back stayed great. A few weeks ago my back went out and I saw a new chiropractor. She insisted on xrays and showed them to me said my spine had lots of arthritis and was misaligned and could get very bad! I was so depressed to hear the news! I was going to start seeing her but the cost was so high :( She inferred only chiro manipulation could help me :( however I am wondering if physical therapy could help my condition as it would be less expensive. Frankly I was not doing my daily back exercises which I think led to the problem. thnx for any input

Hi Friend ,

I have been here . Those constant back pains when i used to bend or stand or engage in any physical activity. It lead me to be inactive at work , with family and most importantly led me towards anxiety and depression. I understand how chiropractor bills and visits get costly and painful.Been there ! Luckily , A friend of mine who works in the health industry then recommended me a simple device to get rid of this pain permanently. And trust me , it worked like magic after just a single use. Hope it helps you too. You can check it out atwww.spineyogi.com . I guess they have an ongoing offer too celebrating the Healthy Spine Week. Best of luck with your recovery. Do let me know on your status. And please do not miss on your back exercises.
