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!
