About two weeks ago my back started feeling like it needed an adjustment. However, I didn't have the time and thought it would just go away. But it didn't. The pain got progressively worse. For two days I could hardly walk, and then I finally was able to go to the doctor.
I was diagnosed with inflammation on the ligaments, etc., that connect the pelvis to the spine. The doctor recommended ice, heat, and steroids. He said that it would take 6-12 weeks to get over it.
I applied PanAway, Copaiba, and Animal Scents Ointment. The pain went away -- almost all of it, almost instantly -- for about 15 minutes. I figured that that was better than nothing, so I just kept applying the essential oils and doing the ice and heat regimen.
Two days later, my back pain is nearly gone! I am thrilled to not have to take steroids and to be feeling MUCH better MUCH faster than the doctor had predicted.
