Coccyx and intercostal nerve.

I have a broken coccyx, which has arthritis as well. I am terrified of an operation - can a chiropractor help? At the same time, I have an trapped intercostal nerve on the right side of my body. It gets inflamed from time to time and I then have to live on anti-inflammatories. It is driving me beserk - any suggestions? I am 53 years old.

Chiropractic can not help a previously fractured coccyx very much - surgery may be indicated if you are experiencing great discomfort or pain.
A chiropractor may be of considerable help with the intercostal neuritis.
