While I agree that you shouldn't, technically you can. Chiropractors frequently utilize PT billing (Current Procedural Terminology/CPT) codes when sending out bills to insurance companies. :/

Chalk up another piriformis syndrome issue here. Went from 953 to 923 in a year. Lost about 50to60ft on distance, but some days I can throw like I used to with no pain. Nobody seems to have an answer as to how to fix it. Took a year off....felt great and now it's back. Anybody have the miracle solution?

Yet your website says you treat children's ear infections, ADD, and bedwetting, among others, with chiropractic treatments. If you're not evidence based in that portion of your practice, it makes me skeptical about the simple "PT-esque" treatments.

Maybe its not piriformis syndrome. If a medical professional doesnt know what is causing radicular LE symptoms, the usually call it sciatica or piriformis syndrome, or both.

I believe the proper place here for this thread would be under 'Ask me anything' in the 'water cooler'

My major issue would be not figuring out exactly how to keep the front knee bent through out the process. My right leg would stay straight and my right knee will lock straight at the hit and follow through. Had a doctor look at it and he was surprised I had no knee problems. Since the issues started with my piriformis there are times where my plant foot hardly turns at all. After looking at older videos of myself I never had that issue. I'm thinking that when this injury surfaced I started to shift my weight too far forward so that the pain from bracing fully would go away. Either way now my timing and bracing is a mess. When I go back to old habits I can throw well, but the pain and numbness is too much to bare so I compensate therefore my game suffers.

Not really clinical evidence, but personal experience with a similar issue. Years ago I was having pain in the piriformis area and ended up taking six months off to help heal it, felt great starting back up and within two weeks back started having the same pain happen again. I figured it can't be from overuse and after self-analyzing I found that two related things were causing the pain, one was keeping the head down which lead to the other thing trying to push off the back leg too late through the brace and jamming things up. After I got my head up dynamically balanced and stacked and started getting back off my rear leg before bracing on the front leg again, it was like a miracle and instant relief. This is why I hate the advice of "keep your head down".
