This morning my GP advised me to see either a chiropractor or an osteopath. What is the difference and what would be best?
I have suffered from chronic pain in my thoracic spine which has gotten much worse in the last 6 months with severe spasms lasting hours. X-ray shows only spondylosis though an x-ray 20 years ago showed previous Schuerrman's disease. I asked for an MRI but my do refused. He also said my facet joints were causing my pain. I am so confused. I take strong painkillers, diclofenac and diazepam.
Please can anyone advise? I am seeing a chiropractor tomorrow but have read some nasty things about them and am scared of making things worse.
