My back went at work yesterday... Laying on the floor crying with pain. Called 111 and they suggested going back to my doctor. She offered to up the dose on my pain relief but that's all she could offer me. She also suggested the week off work but if I do that I'll just stay at home in bed and probably make my back worse/stiff.
So last night I booked in with an osteopath for Monday. Right now I just want to try anything as the pain relief helps to an extent at night but other than that it doesn't really do much. If my back goes at work, the pain relief does F all.
I'm going back in today and will discuss with my manager different job roles that I can manage without risking my back. (I don't get paid sick leave).
So what are people's views and experiences with an osteopath?
ETA: By 'back went' I mean there was a pop followed by intense pain and inability to move. Doctor wasn't too concerned when I saw her.
