Chiropractor help
 
Can anyone recommend a good chiropractor in the Wipkingen area? I am really suffering with what I think may be a bulging disc and my physio in town has been cancelled due to lockdown so suffering in constant pain day and night locked up :( I would like someone who does a proper assessment ie X-rays/ MRI and if anyone can give a rough idea on cost that would be great!

You should be looking for a proper doctor or other medical practitioner, not a chiropractor. Chiropractic is about treating illnesses by manipulation, not treating actual musculo-skeletal problems such as this.

Anyway, if your physio is closed, what makes you think a chiropractor would be open?

I don't think chiropractors can do X-rays, and it sounds like you need something much better than a chiropractor anyways. I suggest calling your regular "house" doctor or going to the emergency room at the hospital if you don't want to wait to be referred by your doctor to a specialist. Perhaps you could even try contacting a spine doctor directly to see if they will make an appointment for you (I did this myself a few years ago and they were willing to see me without a referral). e.g.

A friend of mine in the US slipped a disc (or something) after falling on the ice a few years ago and was in so much pain that she was practically having seizures from the pain and was put on bed rest because she wasn't supposed to move more than absolutely necessary. Then she had a quick outpatient surgery and was back to feeling 100% within just a few days. Hope you're feeling much better very soon.
