Leaning to the right TOWARDS the pain in the right leg and hip.

Leaning to the right TOWARDS the pain in the right leg and hip.

Threw back out while bowling. Went to chiropractor, felt great immediately after. Can't walk straight since. Constant pain.

Hello John,
If you can't stand up straight, what we call the Pisa sign, othopaedically known as an 'antalgia', leaning towards or away from the pain.

That's the first thing to establish; ask the boss to stand behind you and establishing whether you are leaning to the right for relief (called the medial disc), or away from the pain to the left, the lateral disk; they are quite different.

Secondly, exactly where in your leg is the pain? It tells us which disc is involved.

No one can fix constant pain in the right leg and hip in one treatment, John. You have to go through the boring discipline of our slipped disc rules; find them using the site search button at Chiropractic Help; in part it means going to bed, doing exercises, using ice, and going for treatment.

Boring, but if you don't you'll end up under the knife. Do it. It means taking time off from work, and going through a proper rehab programme before going back to bowling. Did you warm up before play?

Dr B
