Chronic back pain

Hello -

I've been having chronic back pain for about 5 years now. I keep going to chiropractor and it helps after a few weeks of treatment, but then comes back even worse. It is in my lower back (minor pain) and my middle to upper and right side of back. Chiropractor seems to think joints along thoracic spine and arthritis.

On a side note - I was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2008 and had surgery and six months of
chemotherapy (during this time, not much back pain). It's been 1 year since chemo ended and back pain
is worse then ever.

Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you!

Chiropractors always think its joints.How bad is this, is primarily in your low back? Have you seen a Doctor or had any X-rays?
