Lower back problem im a 39 yrs old male, with lower back pain. I threw it out a year ago, and the pain is unbearable on somedays. I have been wondering if a chiropracor is the best way to go or a orthopedic?

I have consistent lower back pain, chiropractor says I have 2 lower compressed spinal disks. Should I keep going to the doctor or if not, what do I do?
Normal wear & tear: Everyone gets disc degeneration as they get older. Imagine if you had sneakers that were 20yrs old. There probably wouldn't be much sole left. There is no way to reverse the wear and tear on the disc, but there is hope. Your best option will be exercise. Look into a beginners hatha yoga class for strength and stability.
