I'm going to try to make this as simple as possible, and I'm probably going to leave some things out. There's also a good chance that I've misunderstood or misinterpreted all or some of the diagnoses I've been given over the last couple of months. Having said that, I will do my best.
First Chiro Appointment
When I showed up for my first chiro appointment last November, one of the first comments she had after looking me over was that my right hip was low compared to the left. She also found out, by poking around my muscles, that my left glute and hip area were EXTREMELY sensitive compared to the left side.
Treating the Pain
Over the ensuing weeks my massage therapist and chirpractor used a combination of adjustments, massage, pressure points, and exercises I was to do at home to treat the leg pain. They also started applying Electrical Stimulation Therapy to the shin area, which is supposed to encourage the body's natural healing systems by sending safe, low frequency electrical pulses to the affected area, causing the muscle to contract and increasing temperature and blood flow.
