Finding Relief from Unrelenting Back Pain

Ever since I woke up this morning, my back has been in a lot of pain. I just want it to stop, so that I can feel somewhat normal. I don’t feel like that is too much to ask, but I have done everything I can think of and I don’t feel any better. I am left to schedule an appointment with a Santa Rosa chiropractor because I can’t honestly think of anything else to do to try to make my back feel better.I started out this morning to try to stretch it out. I warmed up, and did a bit of aerobics, and then tried to stretch.

After that didn’t work, I moved on towards trying to do some yoga, but I quickly found I was too stiff to do much of anything. More than that, the yoga kind of made my back hurt more, which is a bit unusual. I was pretty disappointed at that point, but I didn’t give up.Instead, I took some anti-inflammatory medicine, and I warmed up a heating pad in my microwave. Then I went and laid down on my bed, belly side down, with the heat bad on my back for a couple hours. I had to warm it back up a few times, and I moved it around to different spots that are troubling. But it didn’t help a lot, and so I guess I don’t know what else to do.

Oh, I just remembered that I also rubbed some cream on my back that is supposed to help with aches and pains. It did help a little bit, but not in any sort of lasting way. I am not sure what I did to my back, but I hope that I will feel better after I go to see the chiropractor today.
