I have suffered from chronic back pain ever since I had an accident about 5 years ago.  Doctors have prescribed me multiple painkillers and chiropractors have been futile in their attempts to treat me.

Suffering from chronic pain since a car accident a few years back had left me unable to hold a job and enjoy life.  I was taking seven different prescription painkillers every day, all riddled with side effects.  My bowels stopped working for long periods of time, which led to even more pills and more problems.   [...]
