Protruding disk in back. Is a chiropracter a good first start?

May help temporarily. But doesn't solve the problem. The chiro will have you come back over and over for ' adjustments' And be sure you will pay for each one. But he/she will never solve the underlying problem. Any chiro should be supervised by your MD or spine MD to ensure nothing serious is missed. If it helps, go. If not, don't waste your money b.
