Threw my back out!

So I bent down to pick up my 3 year old and put him in the bath. All of a sudden my back just froze and I heard the loudest cracking sound down my spine! I fell onto the toilet and literally, could not move! I had to send my 3 year old after his daddy to come and help me. He took me to the ER and the only thing they would do is try and give me painkillers, which I obviously can't take. They sent me to OB first and they checked out the baby and he was perfect, so they sent me back down to ER. Basically, I have massive muscle strain and it's pulled my back and hips out of place.

Yesterday I decided to try the Chiroprractor and WOW!!

Sorry about your back :( I am having chronic low back pain now as well. I love chiros..I went to them for years after car accidents...I am thinking about going to a prenatal one if my back doesn't get better with a belt.

Ouch. Sorry about your back :( Your chiropractor sounds heaven sent!

I've never been to a chiropractor before, but I've only heard good things about them.
