You may want to get to someone who can prescribe an MRI of your spine and make sure it isn’t a disc pressing out to your spinal cord. Your symptoms are typical of that.  Did your chiro do that for you and rule out disc problems?  

And if it’s that, you definitely don’t want to blow out your disc by more lifting – probably just needs time to heal – took me 9 months to get back into pain free action from some partially herniated discs.
Otherwise, massaging of tightened muscles will help alleviate pain…
