I’ve been going to a chiropractor for over 2 years( I am on my 3rd one and I really like him... the first one wasn’t doing anything for me, the second one was too far of a drive so I have one closer).. anyway.. I first started going for sciatic pain in my lower back which extended to either leg. For some reason I am not aligned correctly meaning one hip is higher than the other. My pain varies from side to side. But mostly on my right side. The sciatic pain has been better but it still sneaks up on me every now and again. My most recent complaint however is my right outer thigh like the right thigh mid area feels like a big bruise or knot or something. My right knee also hurts from time to time. It hurts when I sit, which sometimes also makes my knee hurt also. I first had this pain in mid May before we went on vacation and all through vacation we walked a lot so the pain wasn’t as bad. When I got home the chiropractor adjusted me and it went away and now it’s just constantly there. I use biofreeze and it helps a little bit.
Last time I went to chiropractor he gave me adjustment and also used pulsated magnetic therapy on my low low back for 10 minutes. It was strange. But this damn pain in the thigh remains. Sometimes it hurts when I’m walking, it definitely hurts when I’m standing. It hurts when I’m sitting, especially driving my car. Idk what to do about this. Anyone have suggestions? Luckily my chiropractor office has many different types of therapies to help with pain and whatnot so next time I go I’m going to ask other alternatives. Oh and I also work as a caregiver in assisted living so I’m constantly going up and down stairs and transferring residents( I am actively seeking a new job because this job has been wear and tear on my body and it’s only getting worse).
I have done some stretches my chiropractor has suggested and it worked at first but now some of them hurt so bad or don’t do anything. Please help!
