Hi,I had a minor injury on the lower right hand side of my back,due to weightlifting in the gym.I had no pains in my legs whatsoever.Then I went to see a Chiro after a friend suggested to me that she was very good.Well after a few sessions there started a pain in my right butt ox,the n it spread to the back of my right knee and outside calves,also a little numbness in my thigh.I was at my Gp for ex -rays was at the phisio a few times ,but nobody can tell me what is going on!! I am desperate and depressed now.I have no pain in my back,Just nerve in my lower to middle back when some one presses on it.Does any one experience the same??

Could your pain be caused by a sciatic nerve? If so, the correct type of physical therapy should be able to help. Once I learned the exercises from my therapist I do them at home when mine acts up.

Hi
I had the same thing 2 years ago.
I was diagnosed with a prolapsed disc.
I had to have a disectomy.
The pain and the pins and needles in my leg was the disc pressing on the sciatica nerve.
Get it checked out asap.

I had the same thing...the doc gave me a cortisone shot and 10mg of prednisone for 6 days and it went away. Sounds like you have an inflammation. Ask your dr about this.

Hopefully, no animals were harmed, especially oxen.
