    Default Pinched nerve in hip and thigh. Who to see?

    I definitely think I've pinched a nerve in my hip and its affecting my thigh. I'm not sure who I see about this.
    Physio
    Chiro
    Osteopath
    Any one else?
    Any help or advice would be very welcomed!

    Xx

    Chiro maybe? I know that's who DP saw for his.

    And I do not envy you. Sciatica is a b*tch!

    I currently have a pinched nerve in my upper back... the pain is occuring in my right shoulder, but tends to be worsened by movement with my left arm... hmmm. Have to go to work soon (beauty therapist, so lots of movement!) and am absolutely not looking forward to it!

    Hope you find some relief soon!

    My chiro helped my sciatica, as did yoga. Ouch!

    Hi,

    I'd probably be getting a diagnosis before getting treatment. It could be sciatica caused by a pinched nerve in your lower back rather than an issue with your hip. Maybe go see your GP first?

    Osteo would be my vote.

    I've been suffering really bad pain in my lower back/hip/thigh and I was originally seeing a physio with no joy. My OB advised an Osteo for this particular problem and even after the first visit I had better movement - amazing. Highly recommend.

    Thank you for your replies. It's been bothering me for a while and I've done pilates & swimming with little/ no relief. I can trace the pain up my thigh to my hip and it wouldn't surprise me if its it in my lower back too because its not very strong.

    If anyone else has any suggestions or recommendations for someone in Perth it would be very welcomed. Xx

    Get your other half to give your butt a good massage! I've had dramas too and it's amazing what a good hard massage on the sore areas of your buttocks can fix ;-) I can go from limping around the house to back to normal in a matter of 10 minutes.
