My father and mother both suffered from chronic back pain for the last two decades of their life. Despite assuming the problem came from their physically demanding careers, I ended up inheriting the same problem as I reached my 40s. I was afraid that my days of biking and hiking were over. I tried using typical pain relievers and rest to soothe my irritation for a few years, but the symptoms kept getting worse. Discovering chiropractic care was like turning on a light in a dark room. Now I get to enjoy all my favorite hobbies with less pain and a better range of motion.
