What is wrong with my hip? Hip pain/ numbness down leg and foot?

Pain and Numbness: If the hip hurts but the pain goes down to the knee, calf, foot or toes, you may wish to consider it sciatica - a pinched nerve in your back.

I have a protruding disc diagnosed many years ago. I am having hip pain and numbness again. I am going to a chiro, is there anything else i can do?

If you are having numbness and perhaps muscle dysfunction, then you need to see an orthopedic surgeon or a spine surgeon and might also benefit from physical therapy. Stay away from the chiropractor until this is done as you may get worse. ...Read more
