I have been seeing a Chiropractor since October (3 1/2 months now), and he is still convinced he can get me right. I'm loosing confidence. I still cannot run and cannot put any weight on the hip. the pins and needles in my foot and leg come and go, but the hip pain is pretty much there all the time. I have had x-rays and I don't have Arthritis.
I stick to the exercises he gives me, and do them all through the week, and am now keeping a diary of each day.
Surely the fact that I'm not running or in fact doing any sport at the moment should easy the pain. the last thing i want is surgery but should i consider it. the chiropractor advised me not to have any surgery.
I haven't ran since October. its driving me mad. how long do i give the Chiropractor?
I too have struggle with hip pain in my Left hip and havent ran for 4 months. it started as a sharp pain ( when I did taekwondo, kicking with that hip) initially it didn't affect my running.
However over the last 12 months its got worse, and i seam to have it all the time. I also have leg pain and pins and needles in my foot. I have had MRI and X-rays and seen a hip specialist and was told i may need a Hip Arthroscopy, but couldnt explain the leg and foot symptoms. I dont think I have got to the bottom of my problem as the Hip and leg pain are definitely connected, they are all mild or severe at the same time. I also get some lower back pai at times.
