An MRI will show any bulging disk.

A chiro will adjust you not crack you ;) Yes you may hear "popping or cracking", but trust me if your just out of wack from hitting the saddle hard you will love the adjustment.

I would not get adjusted until you know why you are hurting. They are great and can do alot of good unless you have a cracked rib or a bad disk. I went to a chiro and he did his thing and I hurt worse than ever. Went to Dr. only find out I had a pulled muscle in my lower back. Adjusting tore it loose worse.

go get it x rayed. do what the md tells you. if its a fx the chiro will do you more harm.. they do have srt ? therapy , and it kind of stretches/pulls you back into alignment. Go see the MD first.. Mine dont give shots, mine dont even like to give pain pills

I get these bouts of severe back pain from a bulging disc in my lower back, to the point where i cant sit in a chair comfortably or raise my leg or lean over, so I know how you are feeling. Going to the doctor is so much better than living in pain. An MRI will not always show a bulging disc (it didnt show mine at first) but i did find releif in a chiropractor that does adjustments as well as nerve relaxers with light acupuncture with electric pulses.

I wish you good luck, and hope you get back to riding!

Another vote for a dr. I have back issues and need yo go back in for a reevaluation as the last time I was incorrectly diagnosed thanks to the awful drs here.
However it can definitely help in the long run knowing that there is or isn't something serious.
