    I am 23 years old and I am seeing a chiropractor for back pain. He did an x-ray of my spine to check the disc spacings. It came back as my discs are compressed, I have authritis, and I have L5 to S1 sacralization. My chiropractor said there is nothing that he can do other than treatments when it flares up. There are some mornings I can barely move it hurts so bad. I can’t help but feel there actually is something that can help. I have a 3month old I have to be able to pick her up without feeling like I might die. What is usually the plan to relieve the pain? Is surgery usually involved? Thanks for any help.

    The chiropractor is correct in that his treatment will be effective for flair-ups when these flair-ups occur. Ther are a myriad of treatments for lower back pain but since I assume that you have had some time with this back complaint (years?), you need a diagnosis. An MRI would be the next step if prior treatment has been unsuccessful.
