I don't know anyone in Ohio, but I did see a chiropractor for almost an entire year without health insurance! I would suggest calling around and see what happens. I know most chiropractors usually give a free consulation. You can go for the free consulation and see what happens. Mine let me keep coming and paying $20 a visit. Just a word of caution though and I'm not saying this to scare you, but just be careful!

Now that I do have ins and was able to see a "real" dr if you will, I found out that my chiro missed a lot of stuff. For example, I have Scoliosis that was never found as a child. My chiro never noticed it or told me about it!! I almost fell over when my dr told me because I would have thought my chiro would have noticed it. Also, I don't know your symptoms, but adjustments can make some back problems worse, like if it's a disc. My chiro was also telling me exercises to do that made my leg pain worse. I've been in PT only a week and my leg pain has almost totally gone away with doing the correct stretches. My PT has told me never to go back to my chiro. (still not sure about that!)

I understand not having insurance, I didn't have it for a year, but just be careful. I don't know what is offered in your state, but maybe you could get some kind of low cost health insurance? I know not having insurance is horrible. I had to leave a job that I loved just to get it to be able to get my back treated. I wish you luck and hopefully you can find something that will help you :)
