Be very careful with the chiro care IMO <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />.

Do not have surgery unless you are flat on your back and unable to help yourslef. It'll lay you out for a few weeks and the pain is unreal after the morphine wears off <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" /> I got talked into the surgery route before I should've and it's not reversable, nor permanent help <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" /> I have good and bad days, and have gotten out but it's something always on my mind to be careful out there.
