Our expert says:
I would recommend a visit to a chiropractor, who refer you for x/rays of your spine. If you already have some fairly recent x/rays - take these along with you. A physical examination will be conducted with relavent orthpaedic and neurological tests. After a full case history has been recorded, a course of action can be determined, which may indeed be chiropractic care with further advice on the care and maintenance of your spine. Should any other more serious pathology be evident, then a referral may be decided upon. I trust that this will help you - don't delay the problem too long - you're still young and there is still much for you to do and enjoy.
