Read: 3 mins. Six months ago, my lower back crumbled with paralyzing pain, and it happened again a month later -- but this time, the severe pain would not subside after two weeks, and I went to see a well-respected orthopedic.

I chose to initially go to a chiropractor instead, but that was a mistake. Read on to see why.

After having done a lot of research and interviewing a handful of heating contractors, we came across Yaeger Services on Angie's List. Here is our experience with them.
