hi i am a 31 year old male and i work for the fire department. when i was 18 i was told that i have degenerative disc disease in my lower back. i have had no problems for years other then maybe a minor week long flair up of pain for that would last for about a week and this happened about every 6-12 months. i am a very active person i play a lot of golf hunt, workout, eat healthy. this nov. about 5 weeks ago i was doing my normal time spending time in a tree-stand bow hunting. the position you sit in a tree stand isn't the best but i haven't had problems before. my back pain started to flair up and it was very bad almost locked up when i woke up one morning. i was prescribed 10 days worth of prednisone 20 mg per day. this seemed to help and at the end i felt better. the pain is still there though more so when i wake up in the mornings. i have never been to a chiropractor and i am thinking about going to one now. i have been told my back could be slightly out of a line and they could fix that very easily. any input on this or advice?? thanks for listening
