The chiropractor did diagnose a pinched nerve which makes sense with the pain I have and continue to struggle to pick things up. After ten days I have less shooting pain when doing things like getting into car but have more lower back stiffness when standing or getting up in the a.m.
He asserts that he needs for me to come in as much as possible this week before I have a 7.5 hour drive next week. Would this drive be okay?
When you mention conservative, should I continue to ice and heat? Take any pain meds? I do have trouble sleeping on my side which is important.
