OT/ Visit to a new chiropractor....

I have a really super-duper messed up back... If I weren't on ivillage right now I would use my favorite expletive to describe it... ;)

At any rate, it has been a while since I've been to a chiro, and it is really REALLY noticeable now. I have scoliosis, I was rear-ended by a drunk driver in 1994 when I was 19 and it messed up my neck and upper back;

I hate back problems. I have a mild case of scoliosis but it really doesn't bother me (knock on wood). I have gone to a chiropractor in the past but haven't gone for years. I would go when I get headaches and I would have a couple of adjustments and it would get better. I got whiplash a long time ago and not sure if that causes it sometimes. I am not sure how back problems effects TTC but I do remember my Chiro saying that he can do an adjustment to help with fertility. He told me this before I was TTC so maybe I should go back. :smileyhappy:

I aml lucky enough to be free of body pain but Tony has TERRIBLE back pain. Had surgery for it back in 2006 that seemed to have helped a lot but after a couple years it started to decline again. He has told me that the chiro only seems to help for that day. It never made it any better in the long run. But then again, he was going to a typical "back cracker" kind of chiro also. Your nre chiro sure does sound promising though! :)

BTW - I didn't really stare at your back and you were sitting most of the time, but it def wasn't noticeable to me!

Christy... the scoliosis never really bothered me until I had the other back injuries... then it just seemed to aggravate everything. I'm glad the adjustments helped with your headaches.

I'm to hear that your chiro mentioned fertility... maybe I'll be *brave* and bring it up today... :P
