Lower and leg pain

Have gone through massage by a qualified chiropractor for one year, twice per week no relief, what is the next move?

If the chiropractor only treated you with massage - then you were not treated effectively. There may be more required than "massage". Consult another chiropractor and relate your past experience etc... Were you x/rayed at all??
