I don't understand why I have not recovered from this yet.
- I eat a strict and very healthy diet
- I work out and stretch 3 days a week
- I am perfect BMI weight, on the lower end of the scaleI had a football type injury, very dumb in retrospect, bounced niece on my back for about 2 minutes. The next day I was in the worst pain of my life. Burning down to the toes.Month later I went to a sports medicine doctor, got anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxer. Then shot in the back, pain free for 2 months. Pain came back, physical therapy. Did stretches religiously. (My hamstrings on the affected side are still very tight after two years, even with regular stretching.) Earlier the this went to a chiropractor, that did nothing. Kept exercising the last 2 years to strengthen my core, got ripped – lost 35 pounds. All this – and still the Sciatica remains. It is baffling, I am peak physical health with the exception of this problem.I went back to the sports medicine doctor last week, more anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxer. Next is a shot again. I'm in the same place I was 2 years ago. What should I do next?P.S. I am 38 years old.
