Brief Answer:
Need to better understand what exactly has happened here

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. I would like to understand a few of your statements better, and so please elaborate on what exactly :your back being out' means? Does this mean you suffered a dislocation at any particular joint? If yes, then which one?

+And the chiropractor put back the displaced joint? How?

+Is he a trained and licensed chiropractor?

+Does he have any education on the human anatomy? Where which blood vessel lies? Because if he doesn't then I would not trust him with my body, and allow him to go about any such procedures.

The chiropractor may or may not have injured any particular blood vessel in the region, or may have caused nerve entrapment (pinched nerve), or the mere trauma caused by the procedure of 'putting your back in'.

Please forgive my skepticism about the procedure and capabilities of all such personnel, as I do not take any displacements lightly, especially not around the back region and neither should anyone else.

I look forward to hearing from you in order to help you further. Please do write back to me with a little more information on the questions I have so I can better understand what could have possibly happened, thank you sir.

Best wishes.
