Dear Confused
Just let a physiotherapist also evaluate you - if there is no sign of nerve entrapment on the x/ray Left side, this may just be a deep muscle spasm or triggerpoint that will improve with proper physiotherapy.

It was physio that diagnosed this by testing reflexs on legs and feet. slightly less sensation on right compared to left. No x-rays have been taken. Would chiro help or should I have x-rays first? Would walking help? Thanks
