Chiropractic Therapy: Yes, the lbp can be helped by chiropractic care. Conservative therapy is always best, but with your cervical disc pathology, i would assume that you have lumbar disc pathology as well. It would be good to have an initial evaluation by a physician and if appropriate, then a referral to a chiropractor would be in order. Good luck.
