I am a 52 year old female. I have 3 bulging/herniated discs in my lower spine (along with stenosis and degenerative arthritis) and herniated discs in my lower neck area. My MRI showed the damage on the left side of my lower back but my right leg continues to give me pain, tingling. I am in physical therapy. Could there be inflammation to a nerve to cause this pain in my right leg? And can a Chiropractor help at all?
It really depends on how bad the stenosis/degeneration is within the lower spine. I've seen cases where this condition responds favorably to chiropractic care, and other cases where pain injections were the next viable step before surgery.
I would advise being examined by a reputable chiropractor in your area, and seeing what the findings are... It's definitely worth a try.
