Be very careful: I am not a Chiropractor but I am a Spine Surgeon and I see patients that have suffered spine injury after Chiropractic care. This is very rare but an unusual amount of pain after treatment can be a sign that your spine has been injured. You must seek help. Start with Chiropractor but if you get no where get to doctor. More likely than not, you will be fine but don't take the chance.
