The last few years of my life I have been dealing with almost unbearable back and leg pain. I have gone to many different doctors. Sometimes they will give me recommendations for exercises that I can do to help relieve the pain, but most of the time, they all just want to write me a prescription for pain medicine and send me on my way. This is not how I want to live my life and I am considering trying something new to help me deal with my medical issue with the use of medication.
My first thought is to make an appointment with a Chiropractor to see if they can help with my back pain. It might seem obvious to some that one should seek help from a chiropractor when the issue is in your back, but I don’t know anyone who has been to a chiropractor and I have no idea where to even look. I really hope that this will be the answer I am looking for but if it isn’t I have a few other ideas that might be options as well.
Acupuncture is not something that I would have ever thought to try before I started experiencing so much pain in my back. But because I am very open to any treatment that doesn’t involve medication I think I would give it a try if chiropractic doesn’t work. I have also thought about using herbs as homeopathic pain remedies. We have a local nutrition store that sells these kinds of products and I have thought about trying them, but I am a little apprehensive. Well at least I have a plan, so now all I have to do is go out and try one or all of these alternative medicines.
