Went to my PCD for. X-rays after falling backwards over my box Boxer, Lucky. Hit hard sitting straight up. Pain was awful was numb for about 10 minutes until I could breathe and got up on my knees and used my hands to get up. Went to Doctor on 2nd day after trying ice, hear. Pain in buttocks and large knot along right upper legged that had shooting pain. Finally gave in after 2 weeks. And went to Chiropractor. I had lived on heating pad S per doctors instructions. Chiropractor said the hip was out of place and Sciatica inflamed from injury and heat. Have been 4 times and don't anymore than get home until my middle back, butt, and leg is hurting again. Not giving up...am 64 and sure don't bounce anymore. The Sciatica is cronic that will hit me hard about once or twice a year if I turn or just look at something wrong pain so bad I actually scream. ER visit, shots and physical therapy for a few weeks and good to go. Can't afford the PT so praying eventually my Chiropractor will get it straightened out. Am not going to rate until I am up and going strong again. By the way, PCD didn't seemed concerned
