Yes.: If your symptoms are not improving, you should get a medical evaluation, because there are causes of pain other than sciatica such as pelvic or spinal infection or tumors.

See a doctor ?: Have you considered seeing a doctor ? Usually it’s a good idea to see someone if injured to make sure there is nothing serious. ? Chiros will just charge you money over and over again to come back and get “ realigned”. But what does that do if you have an occult fracture ? A tendon injury ? Stop wasting your money on a quack and see a doctor.
