    It will benefit you most to see a Chiropractor and a Massage Therapist together. A Chiro can adjust the skeleton BUT the tightened muscles will just pull you out of adjustment again. The MT can release the tension and make what the Chiro does much more effective. You say how can I afford it? I say how can you afford not to. Cliche but true. Once a month is enough for me. It's about $100 a month for both together.

    After this pregnancy is over I am definitely looking into getting a chiropractor. I had a riding accident when I was 16 back in 2007 where Beau took a sharp, unexpected turn and I was thrown from his back at a full out gallop. I landed actually on my head/neck (thank god I was wearing a helmet) and flipped over and slammed my left side into a fallen tree. To this day I am convinced I at least cracked one or two ribs and I definitely have back and hip injuries from it. Chronic back pain sucks.
    I definitely should have seen a doctor.. but what did I do? Limped back to the barn after I could move/walk again, collected Beau from the barn aisleway where he was waiting for me, he helped me walk into the arena with my arm over his neck and I hopped back on and rode for another hour.
    Interestingly enough, I had no pain at all while riding even though I couldn't walk for about 3 days afterward due to the hip injury. :P

    On a side note.. trying to jump onto a horse bareback from a wooden beam on the ground that is only about 7 inches tall.. is not a good idea after rib injuries x_x I miscalculated and slammed my ribs off his withers and let me tell you that was excruciatingly painful. At one point when I was sitting on him, I leaned down to hug his neck and couldn't get back up because of the pain in my ribs. Bless his heart, I think he realized my predicament and actually lifted his head and neck up and helped push me back into a sitting position.
