Peanutsanjam- thank you for your input.
To answer your question, which as you know is going to get us some major grief on this thread, , yes. Chiro manipulation may help. Most low back pain is caused by poor posture/ biomechanics . Prolonged sitting places a great deal of weight on weak lumbar muscles and you may feel stiffness and pain.
I would go to a well respected chiro. Ask your GP or better yet any nurses you know. Pain management will likely refer you to pt and although exercises are important manipulation will be more helpful. Especially if you can't exercise because you feel too stiff. Your chiro will perform a high velocity low impact maneuver and force joint motion.
You will be surprised at how effective it can be.
I get many referrals form pain docs and orthos . these professionals are aware of chiro benefits and usually have some dc's they feel comfortable referring to.
Make sure chiro performs an exam, checks your range of motion and looks over your history. I assume you don't have prior Injuries , disc lesions etc, it's okay if you do, just let your Chiro know.
Depending on your condition, no spams, no radicular pain ,etc, you're looking at a short course of care with transition to home exercises. Something like 3-6 visits .
Hope that helps
