Leg pain: Your chiropracter helped the muscle pain, but it sounds like something else is going on. I would suggest you see your family doctor, an neurologist or an orthopedist and evaluate further. Nerves can be pinched by many things, including disc fragments, bone spurs and even tumors. ...Read more

My back went out and I still have paine on  my leg?

Doctor can evaluate: A back problem that includes leg pain should be evaluated by a primary care doctor, who can then refer the patient to a physical therapist, orthopedic doctor (regular or back specialist), pm&r doctor (physical medicine & rehabilitation), and/or neurology doctor. The leg pain may be due to pressure on nerves coming out of the spine, which can lead to permanent leg problems if not corrected soon. ...Read more

Ice, rest, see doc: I think the same general principles apply here as in any type of trauma. Since, you are not apparently disabled at this point in any significant way I don't see the absolute need to go to an emergency room unless you'd like to take advantage of having met your deductible for the year with your insurance and try and get as much medical service as possible? Ice to the back, rest, and call your doc. ...Read more

Get re-evaluated: See a Primary Care provider and explain your symptoms to them. Depending on the location of the injury they may order additional imaging tests to get more information. Don't just treat the pain with narcotics after 6 years of pain. If that's all they offer get a referral to an interventional pain specialist who may have more longer-term solutions rather than just more opioid pain pills. ...Read more

BACK ATTACK: The complex motions of the spine make it susceptible to injury in many locations. The supporting soft tissues and powerful muscles also are at risk. If imaging did not disclose an abnormality, that does not mean one doesn't exist. Alternative therapies like accupuncture, manipulation and massage can help. Radiating pain suggests nerve involvement and a physician should do an exam to be sure. ...Read more
