My name is Michelle Simpson, I am 44 years old and have been a Dental Hygienist for 20 years and during this time I have been getting fairly regular care from chiropractors. I had ruptured my L5 disc in high school, when a friend pulled a chair from underneath me and I had surgery then in 1982. Since then I have been pain free and active, until June 26 2010, when out for a routine jog, I experienced immobilizing pain in my low back, I spent a day on ice and taking Ibuprofen, without any improvement. I was familiar with that kind of pain and I was having flashbacks to my previous injury and scared I would be again facing surgery. I could hardly move or get in and out of bed alone. I tried a day or two of muscle relaxers, steroids, anti-inflammatory medications prescribed by my general physician and again found little to no relief.
