Ok, I’m 5’9, i weight 155lbs, and i have never taken any medication. I was playing basketball one day, and I took a hard fall on my left hip. As a result of the fall, I endured an injury to my spine which knocked some pieces of my spine out of place, as a result, this left me with one leg being longer than the other, because of the imbalances of my spine. I’ve seen a chiropractor about 10 times, going through a treatment called “sublixation” and he tells me that I am close to recovering; Maybe after about 5 more visits, ill be done. But I’ve started playing basketball again, in attempt to try to regain my conditioning. I’ve just been training, no contact or live games. My question is, is there any harm I could do to my back, if I’m just training? Sometimes, after a training session, i feel some soreness, in my left hip, sometimes in my right hip. My chiropractor says not to worry about it, that will happen because I’m not fully recovered, and that there’s nothing I could do to reinjure my spine by just training, but sometimes the soreness I experience puts a doubt in my mind, so my question is, My question is, is there any harm I could do to my back, if I’m just going through my basketball training? also, I haven’t seen my chiropractor in 2 weeks, so that also scares me a little.

Hi Robert,

This is a tough one to answer as I haven’t examined or treated you!

All I can say is that your chiropractor is probably correct in what he is saying. Discuss your concerns with him so that he can put your mind at ease.

With regards the 2 weeks since last seeing him, if you feel that you want to see him sooner, simply ring his clinic and book yourself in with him sooner. Easy!
