ashatNYU Posted March 10, 2004 Report Share Posted March 10, 2004 For the past few months, I have been having mid/upper back pain main as a result (I think) of carrying a bag on my shoulder to work. The pain is usually moderate to severe by the time I get to work (a 45 min walk) but subsides in an hour or so. I think in a way my spine is becoming misaligned because one shoulder is trying to compensate for the weight on the other and my posture and balance in class are becoming somewhat affected. I went to the chiropractor for the first time this morning and, after an evaluation, he thinks I have strained muscles and wants to start a two month, three day a week treatment with electric stimulation/massage. My question - is this treatment really worth the time and monetary commitment ($60+ a week) or is there a more afforable (and as effective) treatment option? Quote Link to comment
