The problem with prescribing pain medication is that it doesn't fix anything. Pain is only a symptom of an underlying problem, and the pain won't go away until that problem is corrected. By taking pain medication you are trying to ignore the problem, which allows it to become worse the longer you, ignore it.
My advice is to see a Gonstead Chiropractor as soon as possible. They will find the problem and correct it, it's what they do. Gonstead chiropractors like the "tough" cases, and they are the highest trained and most skilled chiropractors you will find.
To find a Gonstead Chiropractor in your area, go to gonsteadseminar.com and at the very top; click on "Patient Info."
On the following page scroll to the bottom and click on "Referral Directory"
From there you can find someone local. I will provide a direct link for you as well.
