Yesterday was Sunday I was cleaning some on my appartment. Well today was a very bad day. I have been extremelly tired today. Sore, in pain, tired. Went to the Chiropractor today and he said he couldn't help me until my trunk or core got stronger. He could feel where I was out in my back but I know anything he would do wouldn't help until my trunk got stronger.
 
I am really depressed right now because when he touched my neck and shoulders I just screamed, as much as I wanted him to take my headache away he could not because I flinched everytime he rouched me. cry cry

I really understand what you are talking about. I have built my core and yes it really helps. I haven't had my back go out in 9 months. Perhaps you should get a massage before you go for an adjusment. Or a nice hot bath. I have found that sometimes it is worth the pain of someone touching me for an adjustment, but only you know. Although I find it a bit strange he said that he couldn't help you till you made your core stronger. I know that it can slip out if your muscles aren't strong to hold it in place. Ah I am rambling, sorry. I really hope you can get out of your pain. Relax today and don't over do. Thinking of you and hope you treat yourself to something wonderful today.

I break down and cry too when people say they cant help me (esp when it is their JOB to help me!!). It really makes you feel alone in your pain and misunderstood.
Some of his point sounded good though, at least he doesnt want to waste your money or just keep hurting you. But at the same point, its not like you are in the position to do a bunch of sit ups! hehehe Walking around the block or swimming can be good options.
Have you ever tried getting a yoga DVD from the library? They have ones for injured backs that are really good stretches that I bet would feel good! You just have to make sure your neck is relaxed while you are doing it. And that would strengthen your core without you barely knowing it! : -) Good luck & Im sorry you were in pain and you didnt get the care you needed that day, hope you can give it to yourself now---we are getting good at that arent we?!

He's the only one that is being honest with me and I'm better off for it. I don't want someone to say I can do it but then turns around and hurts me worse. At least he did take a little bit of my headache away. Plus he told me he did not want to waist my time and money if he could not help me (yet).
