Re: Backpain

None of us should be diagnosing based on anecdotes....I agree that a visit to a good physical therapist, chiropractor, acupuncurist, craniosacral therapist or trigger point therapist would be a good place to start.
OFTEN (but certainly not always) what is called a nerve impingement is not spinal but either a muscle trigger point referring pain or a muscle contraction impinging on a sensory nerve. This includes sciatica that orthopedists will almost always insist is spinal in origin based on their very limited experience with purely soft tissue issues.
