Back pain : I have seen thousands of people with spinal pain. I can't tell you how important an in-person examination is needed to help you. Chiropractors have an added advantage of using spinal manipulation, physical therapists "physio" are more likely to use exercises. So, find a chiropractor that uses exercises and manipulation.
