Numb hip with tingling. What can help?

I bumped my L hip and now it is has been numb/ tingling for a few days as well as entire L lateral leg. I thought this could be back issue but with forward bending to open the lumbar foramen it did not decrease numbness/tingling. The numbness and tingling is mild, intermittent, with no numbness/tingling at night (at least not that I am aware)

Hello chartrainus,

Thanks for posting your query

Acc. to your description you are suffering from the symptom of sciatica.

Means there is some stretching of sciatic nerve.

So you have to extend the hip & flex the knee to reduce the stretching over nerve.

I hope this answer satisfy your query.

hi patient,
you r advise to take acupressure and magnetotherapy treatment from specialist.

this is a case of sciatica

However, advice;---

1.Place south pole of strong magnet on hip.

2. another south pole of strong magnet may b place back of knee.

3. Place north pole of low power magnet on feet near thumb .
keep this position for half an hour twice a day for 15 days.
also massage entire leg with magnetic oil.
