Hey Daniel2,

I was actually arguing against a chiropractor. It sounds like the chiropractor somehow irritated your sciatic nerve. This branches from your lower back and you can feel pain anywhere along the nerve pathway down your buttocks (I'm British, I can't bring myself to say butt!) back of thigh and calf. Give that video a go. It may not be for you but it may be a game changer. Please report back your experience.

Best wishes,

Atty

atty, sorry I misread what you said about the chiropractor. with the experiences of how more than one chiropractor trigged this condition, I am not going to get adjustments anymore. however, I was thinking if I can find a chiropractor that has knowledge and experiences (and the resources of course) in his/her office to deal with this condition with therapies other than back adjustments like massage, etc, I would consider that (and my insurance would cover it). I have noticed since yesterday, the pain when I walk now has settled into my left hip. I how get a dull-ish sharp pain in my left hip area and an ache lower down my thigh on the same side when I walk and its VERY uncomfortable. I tried the video once yesterday. not sure how many times I'm supposed to do it and I'm also concerned that if I am rolling on this area, and its not the right thing for this mystery condition, I might make it worse. thanks again atty! (that's funny about the brits and not being able to say "butt" LOL) I say worse than that actually

My Mood: Undiagnosed buttocks and legs pain/numbness/tingling

The 2 chiros I went to for other issues were very helpful..
one used many other modalities besides adjusting, and he was very gentle/careful with adjustments also..
He used -
IF stim (much better than TENS)
Low level laser (also called cold or soft laser) great for specific pain areas
Ultra sound
Also did some manual trigger point release

The other used KT (kinesio) tape (also other similar products)
kinesio tape - Google Search

After I found how well it worked I googled of course & bought my own and have used it many times for shoulder, knee & back pain..
That's the colorful tape you see on many athletes..so if it works for them in competition...
Tons of videos on how to apply or find a pro to apply it the first few times...

If any provider is not helping much , keep looking for better ones..

Hey Daniel,

I think these protocols are designed for people without nerve issues (like allodynia for example), so that if its too painful for you don't do it. But if you find you can do it and that it helps continue. You know your own body best. I'm not actually sure about frequency, I use a foam roller every day, but sometimes my thighs or calves are too sensitive so I leave it for a few days and concentrate on my back.

Best wishes,
Atty
