I started physical therapy which was basically doing the same exercises from the book. My therapist is terrible. She insists I will probably need surgery and don't be afraid, it is what it is...I'm going to a different therapist monday. Sometimes I wonder what treatment is best. Depending on who you read, theirs is the best. Now I feel like I have trigger points that are irritating me sciatic nerve. What good does building up the back muscles do if I just need to rub out the soreness? My dr. says I should get another epidural shot. The last one is wearing off right about now after 2 weeks. What a waste! Dr. Sarno wrote a book "Healing your Back" he says the pain is in my head!! At this point, I really don't know where to turn. I guess I'll keep doing my cobra's and trigger point rubs and keep hoping, like most people say, that this will go away and heal by itself. Thanks for letting me vent, feel free to respond.....
thanks for the reply. I downloaded the book last night and will give it a try. Also found another physical therapist who is great and ready to help me with this problem. I'm trying to keep my head up and stay positive. I just have to remember the days when I couldn't walk it hurt so bad. It still hurts but I can make it around the block and feel better afterwards. By the way, I finally slept thru the night last night for the first time. I put a pillow under my back between my ribs and pelvis to keep the arch. Worked great!! Happy 4th!
