Severe back issuies

Patient : I have been using a therapedic massage chair ( bought 5 yrs. ago)I would use this chair a lot because it seemed to help my back with massage. I have since had a mri because one day i woke and couldnt walk. I have two herniated and one slipped disk,sciatica and went to a pain spec who refused me the shot due to the bad condition my back was in. I am seeing a surgeon but my question is in your opinion could this massager manipulate your back to cause problems after so much use?? I did always feel cracks and sounds while using this chair from my back and the next day I always felt like a monkey pounded my back all night. Very sore..Whats your opinion????
