Another cause to leg pain may be a piriformis spasm which often traps the nerve in the lower buttock area. Massage therapy is very helpful with reducing the spasms and giving temporary relief however the misalignment of the pelvis needs to be addressed by a Chiropractor so that the problem does not repeat itself. Chiropractors are specialists trained in restoring the functioning of your nervous system. I would always do the chiropractic first and let them decide what is the correct treatment for your condition.
Here is a quick question for you.
If you had a tight rubber band on your finger what would it do to the finger?.....( it would hurt, get swollen, cut off circulation)
Then would massaging the finger fix the problem? (No)
Would exercising fix the problem? (No)
Would taking medication fix the problem? (No)
All these methods only treat the symptoms what needs to be done is to remove the rubber band. This is what Chiropractors do for your nervous system. We remove the subluxations caused by misaligned vertebrae and free the nerve thereby removing pain and restoring function. I hope this will help you in making your decision.
