I have been dealing with back and neck pain for about a month now. It all started when I was working out and tweaked something. Went to a chiro 4 times in one week and that seemed to make it worse. His diagnosis was that was completely out of alignment etc. From learning that I also had DDD which turns out not to be too big of a deal at this point (ie, not the cause of the issues.)
I have ended up with PT who as diagnosed me with a pull trap muscle as some neck strain. Furthermore, his explanation is that it is then compounded by bad posture, work habits etc.
My regular doc had also confirmed this as chronic back spasms.
I have been seeing the pt for three weeks and really not feeling any better in term of pain. I am ok if I dont do anything, but as soon as I am worked on, or I try say mowing the lawn, or just stretching I get very sore and am out for two days.
I am not sure what to do anymore or how long this is going to take. I was given Orphenadrine and some other strong anti inflammatory, that I have to take. I don't like taking drugs, cause the scare me.
My frustrations are that I have never been this much pain and inability for so long, and they way things are going not sure when or how long a situation like this takes. I keep thinking that "next week" I should be ok, but it seems to be the same.
Any advice or insight I can get is appreciated.
