I’m going to throw this out for what it’s worth. Maybe you’ll benefit from it or maybe you’ll write it off. Standard caveats about not being a doctor and your situation may vary apply.
I am a fan of chiropractic treatments. Not everyone is, I know. A new chain moved into our area called The Joint – they have locations nationwide. It’s a chiropractic place, but it’s not like a regular chiropractor’s office. You can pay per visit, buy a punch card or get a subscription. It’s an all cash practice; they don’t take insurance at all. I do the subscription and get up to four monthly treatments for $70. Sometimes I’ll go four times a month; sometimes life gets in the way and I only make it 2 or 3 times a month. I’ll tell you this, though, my back feels like it did in my 20s. There have been weeks when I forget to go in and get adjusted because I don’t notice my back at all so I’m not thinking about it.
So, there you go. Something to consider for back pain if you’re open to chiropractors and you have a Joint location near you.
