    I had an issue with the small of my back (disc bulge), could hardly walk, sit down or get up without pain. Went to chiropractors and they were okay, they love their clicking of the spine and neck. Only in the clinic for 5 mins (for about 8 times). Seemed to have sorted out the back and definitely made my neck straighter. Then the back issue came back.

    Decided to go to the osteopath instead; definitely much more active (muscle stretching mainly, some minor clicking) and making sure that you tried to help yourself with home exercises. Definitely seemed to work faster than Chiro but the issues wasn't as bad as before.

    The niggling is still there and am always aware of it but I can at least move and do some active sports now.

    Physios have been said to be the best though, but I think it's all luck of the draw. A mate said their chiro was very good. I wouldn't necessarily rate mine. The Osteo was good though.
