Yes, at the Chiropracters about 2 weeks ago.
She said that the x-rays did not show the "discs" being compressed (the good news). She seemed to be concentrating in that area where the "sciatic" nerve is found in the lower portion of my back and trying to stretch "something"...The nerve inflamed?
The back of the knee area was somewhat swollen...that is why I was given the anti-inflammatory medication.
What is "standard sciatica" and would this pain come about slowly...say over a period of a week or longer? What is a "herniated disk?
What is the best thing to do if one's job is to sit in front of a computer for 8-10 hours? What are other potential factors that cause both conditions?
