Re: Mystery diagnosis help
I had the sharp stabbing pain in one side of my lower back. And although I was skeptical, I went to a Chiropractor. First there were 2 visits a week, then 1 per week, then 1 every other week. 12 visits total. He wanted me back once a month, but I haven't been back since then. (back doesn't hurt anymore)
The visits consist of the adjustment, the massage, and the vibrating table thingie you lay on.
I recommend trying it for a few weeks, and if it doesn't help, then maybe go down other roads.
Only thing to watch out for is once his adjustments "stick", your back will be very weak because it is in a new position. So no heavy lifting until you strengthen you back up again. That was my mistake. Probably would have had it back to normal in half the time but I threw my back out mid-way though, lifting and turning like a dummy.
"Another note: Gomes told me yesterday that Rolen and Cabrera congratulate teammates for 10-pitch ABs that end in outs, and for sacrificing themselves to get runners over. Gomes said he’s never been on a team that did that, not even the World Series Rays." -PD
