      My shoulders and back have been a big problem for me due to shoulder subluxation and cervical instability. My two things that have helped: trigger point injections (cannot live without them) and non-traditional chiropractics (someone who is aware of the condition and doesn't perform the usual popping). Haven't found any good treaments for my other aches and pains yet 😕

      For me, it is really about finding the balance between physical treatments (dry needling, cupping, deep tissue work on tight muscles, strengthening, my tens unit anf heat/ice) and low dose medicines. I take tramadol (lowest dose possible) and only when I absolutely have to. I find that pain meds only mask the pain and don't actually help reduce my long term pain.
