Hi all. I recently found out that I have spinal arthritis. For this last year and a half, I've experienced moderate back pain. I wasn't too concerned because the pain wasn't ruining my life or anything dramatic like that.
A friend told me I should go in for a free consultation with a Seattle chiropractor and she found out that I have spinal arthritis. I was pretty stunned and *****d.
To my knowledge, not a person in my family has ever had arthritis. I guess I'm lucky that I don't have osteoarthritis. I know fevers go along with that disease. It just had to develop in one of the worst spots. On the spine? Really? That's such a lousy location because the spinal cord and all of the nerves that are back there (I guess those are everywhere-duh).
I've seen those commercials with the woman talking about arthritis and the pain in her hand. I thought about that after I was diagnosed and wished for it or even for what that golfer has.
Apparently, since it was noticed early in its development, I know what medications and back pain exercises that will help in delaying and relieving pain.
I'm just glad I went to that appointment that my friend recommended.
