Been to family Doctor ,Chiropractor Physical therapy in the last 2years only seemed to be temporary relief now as of February 2017 went to see an Orthopedic Doctor he requested an MRI only to have insurance reject it and requested I do 6weeks physical therapy at 3times a week then after they get result from therapy and review that information then if I failed therapy then maybe an MRI over a year ago the family Doctor put me on medication for pain and leg cramps for a week that medication didn't even seem to help my pain misery the Chiropractor did electro pulse therapy helped temporarily
