Hi, I have a tear between two discs/degenerative disc disease as a result of over-training for a marathon. My symptoms began in my leg, and as time went on it concentrated in my lower back, resulting in my current diagnosis. Anyway, I had a cortisone shot a little over a month ago, and I'm still having a good deal of pain, both in my back and my lower leg. I was wondering if anyone either had a similar injury and could share their experience, or if anyone could suggest any other therapies for the injury. I know the shot wasn't supposed to cure my injury but was supposed to mask the pain. Seems it isn't really working. Thanks for the help!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
