Speaking from my experience at my clinic with respect to massage therapy, I would recommend a Chiropractic clinic if you are looking for a therapeutic massage and/or deep tissue work. The therapists at my clinic are trained and certified in a variety of therapeutic techniques. This does not mean that a massage therapist in a massage studio is not up to the task to do deep tissue work, but you chances for a therapeutic massage are higher in a clinical setting. It is also helpful when the doctor and the massage therapist work together to give you a proper evaluation before you begin the massage!

Sciatica should not be a lifelong condition. Hopefully you are improving with PT. When dealing with a patient that has one-sided leg pain we first want to rule out a disc problem. Making sure there is no weakness in the limb, next is to see how far the pain moves down the leg (ends in behind, knee, ankle or toes).

If it's a true sciatica, improving flexibility in the Glutes and Hamstrings daily can help reduce the Sciatic pain, making sure pain does not become an ongoing issue. Improving flexibility and then incorporating core-strengthening exercises is a formula for continued success. Chiropractic adjustments can be an intricate part of your treatment to keep the joint spaces open in the Lumbar and Sacral areas, as the origin of the Sciatic nerve begins in that area.

First it is important to get a patient history and the mechanism of injury that caused your father's back pain. If all checks out and he is considered a good candidate for a manual adjustment he should get some relief. Following the adjustment it would be important for the practitioner to give your father home instruction regarding moist heat, stretching, exercise and use of ice if needed. Likely a follow-up in 2 days to see if his pain is reduced.
