Can taking pressure off of the nerve cause muscle spasms?

I went to the chiropractor last Thursday and now I have cramping down the back of my left leg the comes directly from the disc protrusion. I really do not know if he made it worse or if messing around with the disc like that and taking pressure off of the nerve can cause it to react by causing muscle spasms. When I sit in a chair now I can feel my left leg in the back tighten up and hurt. If I lift my weight off of my back with my arms the pain goes away. I also had a back spasm right around the site of the disc protrusion and it shot directly down my left leg. This has never happened before since I injured myself in February. Does taking pressure off of the nerve cause it to react this way sometimes or do you think he cause my disc further damage?

Others here may well disagree with me, but when you have a bulging disc, you should not let a chiro manipulate that area of your back. That's a quick way to a herniation. A good chiro would not even WANT to go there; please, take care of yourself and let a spine specialist treat you rather than a chiro.
