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

I think i have a pinched nerve in lower back. Went to doc,today and got meds. How long until pain stops? I have had severe pain for 5 days now?
Pain will go gradual: pain can linger longer if you have muscle spasm. but either way, dont be surprised if it goes on longer than one week. recovery and resolution will be quicker if you do everything right- rest, relax the muscle, take pain meds and do gentle range of motion exercises AFTER the pain goes away. the key is not to rush it ...Read more
Traction/acupuncture: Great question: the real answer is nobody knows. They have never been compared head-to-head in any sort of controlled trial. They are both treatments that can be beneficial and i would suggest doing both of them. Consider epidurals too. When dealing with a pinched nerve, i think the most important thing is to know if there is nerve damage (an EMG will diagnose). If so, surgery is warrante. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What can I do for a pinched nerve I have on my lower back? It also goes down my right leg towards the back right above the knee.
Sciatica: Low back, buttock and "shooting" leg pain are all symptoms of a pinched nerve. It sounds like you may have that problem. If the pain is severe and limiting your activity still, the best non-narcotic medications that I have found to work for my patients are antiinflammatories such as Ibuprofen or Naproxen which are over-the-counter medications. Other non-narcotic medications include tramadol (ultram) which requires a prescription and nerve-pain medications such as gabapentin. These are all to be taken for temporary pain relief. This type of pain typically resolves with time. Ask your primary physician about these if the pain is still limiting you. If it is still going on for more than a month an MRI may be helpful to help sort out what is going on and there could be other potential treatments outside of surgery that could benefit you. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
