Low back pain and pain and spasm/cramps in both legs

by Nicolas Jacobs
(South Africa.)

Good morning

Kindly assist please. For the last 8 months I have suffered from lower back pain and pain in both legs. Iv'e been for X-Rays and my doctor says that it can be a nerve that is causing my pain.

It seems it's not getting worse but their is no improvement for me either.

Is there any treatment for this and the possibility to cut out surgery??

You opinion will be appreciated.

Kind regards


Hello Nicolas,
Eight months is quite a long time; a good place to begin is with some gentle exercises every morning before getting out of bed. You'll find them in the navigation bar at Chiropractic Help.

Give that say a month; if it's not improving, chiropractors specialise in this sort of problem. Take the x-rays with you.
