I suggest you see an MD specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation.

They will do much more than massage.

The correct physical therapy is essential.

They can also handle medications and shots needed.

Shots alone are not adequate for this situation, and only temporary. The correct therapy is needed.

Chiropractic rarely helps in this situation.
