It's in the groin
Just come back from the physio after trying to continue training with it for 3 months, already signed up to run the paris marathon not realising how bad the injury is and now been told I need 5 months off! I got mine from skipping, so painful! After your MRI, what has the specialist advised? I was told that if its a really bad case surgery is sometimes required?
I've had this condition for 11 months now. I've had 2 steriod injections and followed all my specialist advice, I haven't run in 2012 and do pilates 4-5 times a week. This condition is crippling my lifestyle, I've run out of options! Fortunately I can still cycle with out any pain, but find walking painfull.
CAN ANY BODY IN THE UK HELP ME!!
Would happily tell you what i tried and what worked for me, but dont want to slate anyone on a public forum.basically I am pain free and doing sport though not run much yet. Combination of a hip injection and deep tissue massage in my back seemed to do the trick after 2 years of frustration.. cld you find me on facebook? from cornwall, profile pic is a sailing dinghy.
DT2 - if often not what's been done, but what hasn't been done.
What about specific stability stuff rather than pilates? What's been said about your back? Gluts, adductors, hammies? What advice have you been given?
Does anyone have a recommendation for the London area as well? Thanks
Des Thorpe if you're in the Manchester area try Bolton University sports and spinal injury clinic, they treat repetitive injuries and it is where all the Harris and Ross people are trained, they will treat you at a fraction of the cost and it's worth every penny.
Looking for advice (and hopefully some positive stories!). Had OP since January 2013 but only got correct diagnosis start of August. I spent 6 months being managed for a pubic ramus stress fracture but a repeat MRI, when it didn't seem to be healing, showed it was a problem of inflammation not bone damage! So after 5 weeks of diclofenac, gabapentin and a steroid injection 2 weeks ago, I am still seeing no improvement (i.e. can't do ADL without pain & can't look after my 2 children on my own). I am unable to do any regular physio or swimming because it is too sore and told not to do anything that aggravates. I have been given a neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) machine to trigger disused muscles-I use 4 times a day on abductors, gluts, abdominals and quads. Currently NHS physio at a loss-has said just keep using the NMES and trying to swim (not using legs) as much as possible. Have been advised I may benefit from IV biphosphonates to reduce bone edema but Drs are reluctant to do anything till 6 weeks post injeciton to see if it helps.
I look forward to the day I can run again and compete in adventure races (I was looking forward to throwing myself into training post children and pre children was racing lots and well). I will not give up! But as yet can't see a light at the end of the tunnel.
