I first experienced back problems in my early twenties because of bad and improper lifting techniques working in landscape construction. I would frequent massage therapy which would give me temporary relief, but would never fix the problem. In my early thirties I started seeing a chiropractor in a monthly basis, they assessed where my problems were in my lower back and adjusted accordingly. Since going to a chiropractor on a regular basis I've had very few problems. And if there is a problem, with regular maintenance recovery time is much faster. Overall, regular chiropractor adjustments have improved my quality of life significantly.
