Re: Pinched Nerve Problem

ok,i went last night and she said the same thing, it will not show on an x-ray. She does adjust my neck and last night she did more of this stretching pulling thing. She mentioned that by 3-4 weeks i should be seeing an improvement. And that my next step would be an MRI.
That leads me to this. i am so confused as what to do. i called my regular Dr. and i am waiting on a call back. i just want her to know what is going on. So my question now is, #1, should i get a second opinion from another chiropractor? But i don't want to go to another one and it take just as long and no results. There is that possibility that my current chiro. is not doing what needs to be done. #2, i have had absolutely no trauma to my spine, no wrecks nothing, how can all of a sudden a disc be messed up with no trauma? I am so new to this, so it just mind boggles me.
#3, What do you do for patients that have disc problems?

Silicone inserts leave the epicondyle pressure-free and provide an intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
