Chiropractor advice

I am a long term sufferer of DDD but recently I have had the worst flare up which has lasted 3 and a half months.

I'm not sure what's up with my back now, but I was in a collision with at Deer which came through my windscreen about 10 days before it kicked off. Now when I do a certain exercise which I was taugh previously by a physio ( you lie on your back, knee bent and almost do a cycling motion)' each time I do this I have a horrible click in my back, it's every time I move my left leg, it sound like bone on bone, it certainly very different to the normal pops you get when moving. I'm not sure if the accident may have caused something to pop out of alignment and that when I thought about a chiropractor, but I'm just guessing at what might be wrong. My doctor has assured me that I will get back to a baseline pain but as time goes on I struggle to see how it can now change.

    Based on their initial clinical observations, they may set up diagnostic tests and/or some form of physical therapy.
    From that point on should be able to identify if it appears to be a muscluar , nerve or spinal problem or direct you
    to another specialist.

    Chiropractors can do wonderful things, but their scope should always be limited. They are not as qualified as
    Spine specialist and IF you do have a disc problem, they could potential create additional problems.

  • I know this might sound wierd but research NUCCA. Along with all my other issues, I slipped in my tub. Got knocked out of whack in the middle of my back and my already TMJ jaw. After several weeks in treatment those were back where the were before I fell. It's upper cervical spine treatments. The adjustments are very subtle. The idea is when those are aligned the rest of your spine follows. Do alot of research first and see if it makes sense to you.
