If the pain is in my leg, why do you adjust my back? If you step on a dog’s tail, the “bark!” comes out of its mouth. If your nerve is irritated at your spine, the symptom may show up in your leg, but the problem is still at the spine. The pain in your leg is not the problem, it’s your body’s way of letting us know there is a problem. The pain is the symptom, but the cause is the nerve interference. I adjust your spine to correct the underlying cause of the problem, and then the pain should reduce.
