What is causing this shooting pain from my right gluteus down my leg?

I was in a car wreck 4 weeks ago. Following the accident I had bad lower back and chest pain. 2 weeks later I went to a chiropractor and masseuse to help with the pain. My back and chest have gotten a lot better, but about 1 week ago after one of the massages, my right leg starting hurting incredibly. It hurts from the lower gluteus down the hamstring, then is excruciating in my outer lower leg and my foot is 1/2 numb. I thought it was a fluke at the time, but it has stayed this way for a week now. My chiro kind of plays it off and says that it will heal with time if I'm in alignment. Is there anything I can do to fix this? Should I go to a doctor? If so, what kind of doctor? Also, this is kind of a side note, but has anyone used CBT therapy online for depression? If so, did it work, or was it a sham? Thank you very much for your time and answers. Have a great day!
