Sciatica- Would a chiropractor help?
So on Sunday I bent down to put my dog's collar on and my back popped and cracked a bunch of times and then I couldn't stand up! I went to the ER, they did x-rays and they were fine. I was told I had a lumbar strain and sciatica. It's excruciating if I do more than lay down in bed. I can walk but I still get muscle spasms doing that and sitting is not even an option. I am on a oxycodone and flexerall which makes it much better. And I am using a heating pad as well per doctor's orders. The meds are just masking the pain. I tried not taking them this morning and it was horrible.
So my question is, would going to a chiropractor be a good idea at this point? I am a barn manager so obviously my job is very active and physical. My boss is great and has been covering it but I feel so guilty, she has a day job.
