Chronic Lower right back pain

Hello.My lower back has been in constant pain since late October 2013.
I have visited my Chiropractor 25 times from December 3, 2013 to April 15, 2014.
I have yet to feel any releif at all, even after the visit.
My right hip is noticabely bulging out & lying flat on stomach & flat on back is very painfull.
The Chiropractor in question simply places shocking pads (electrical impuls) for approx. 8-10 min every visit. I need to know what to do next. Being a fit & healthy 25 year old, I am concerned that there is other treatment needed to fix this extremely annoying back pain.

protruding floating ribs

My floating ribs on my left side protrude quite a bit from the others.
It is quite noticable if I am lying on my back, and makes lying on my stomach uncomfortable at times.
Primarily, does this indicate a problem? Either way however, is there something I can do to fix it?

dislocated rib

(16 discussions)

I have a rib that is out of place in my upper back. As a result I have severe muscle spasms from my shoulder to my neck. The only way I can stop the pain is to lay down. My chiropractor will pop it back in and 2 hours later it pops out again. He tells me to just keep coming back and eventually it will stay in. I hope he is right I have had him pop it back in 5 times now within 5 days. Is there anything else I can do? Any help would be appreciated thanks.Lt.

knee injury related to back pain

1 year ago I was skiing and ended with 2 tibial fractures and a stretched out ACL.
I was in a full leg cast up to my buttocks..making it very hard to sit properly aligned.
Since then I have had one surgery to my ACL and next month I will have an ACL reconstruction.
My question is ever since I borke my leg.. I can not stand straight for longer than 30 minutes without having lower back pain.
If I move around then I am fine…. After standing straight without moving around I can crack my neck and I feel like I need to crack my back because I feel out of line.
Is this problem related to my knee injury? And if so should I see a chiropractor before or after my acl reconstruction? Thank you for your time.. Jessica
