Treatment Ratings

    Not Improved
    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Physical Therapy, Cortisone Injection, Brace, Heat, Stretching, Strengthening Exercises, Epidural

I have had two epidural's, one offered some relief, second one did nothing. I had one round of physical therapy and I am currently starting my second round. I go to a warming pool 3 to 4 times a week and exercise in it for one hour. I do stretching exercises every morning. I am not seeing the results I had hoped for.
