What is your goal? Do you just want to be out of pain? (Drugs can many times do that.) Do you want to be off pain medication? Do you want to be able to do normal every day activities without pain? Or do you wish to have ALL of the signals traveling along the nerves to and from the brain to do so free of interference? Chiropractic is not about pain relief, but nervous system function. The decision to seek or continue care is always yours, but don't short change your health by having pain be your guide. In most cases slow gradual damage occurs long before the pain starts.
