I would NOT recommend a chiropractor given your symptoms- you need a proper diagnosis, imaging , and a treatment plan. Obvious swelling, increased sudden pain are symptoms that need a proper diagnosis first before ANY manipulation of spine is done.
Anyone can be disgusted with back pain. It can ruin our life. have you ever considered consulting a professional? A qualified chiropractor can help. They can help your body heal by itself. I had one for years, and I underwent a lot of medication, but nothing changed. But as per my friend’s suggestion, I thought of going for a chiropractic practice. It worked out for me, and I wish I had done it sooner. Chiropractic care is similar to professional massage therapy. So, please consider a chiropractor as one of your options; he or she may be able to assist you. I suggest you go to a chiro; they might help better than you think. They can determine what’s your exact problem. So keep a chiropractor in mind if you are thinking of any alternative therapy.
Have you had a consult with a board certified spine surgeon or recent imaging studies of the painful area?
I would start there and see what they recommend. Without a proper diagnosis, treatment suggestions are likely not going to help.
