osteo-artheritis

G-morning! I have recently been dignosed with osteo artheritis. About 2 years ago a chiropracter told me I have a pinched 'siatica' , that makes my right leg drag. He gave me some exersizes to do....50% of the time it helps. Now I'm in constant pain in my lower back........getting progressively worse. Every 2 to 3 weeks(when the pain gets unbearable) I have a Voltaren injection. Where do I go for help now!

If the Sciatica has disappeared - then continued periodic chiropractic care could be good. You may however seek another opinion by consulting a Rheumatologist - A thorough x/ray examination of your lower back is also advisable.
