The pain in my legs has gone away some with PT but it has seemed to hit a plateau--PT thinks the source of my pain is periformis + hamstrings are choking my sciatic nerve. PT suggested that we try a steroid injection to help things heal up while we work on strengthening the surrounding muscle structure (apparently there's a lot more Suzanne Somers in my future).
I've only known a few people who have done this and its all been used to help deal with pain from playing musical instruments. No one has ever said, "That was awesome." Pain during/after the injection, didn't do much, etc.
I recognize that the DR would be injecting into a different part of the body and for a different reason.
I guess my question is (for people who have been through this) "After 4 weeks of PT are we jumping the gun?"
(Yes, I have a call in to my Dr and I've also asked my PT to talk to him so that all 3 of us are on the same page. )
By the by. PT says, "I think we're gonna need to give you steroid injections...but I promise you, you're not gonna win the tour." I appreciated his humor.
