I am a 25 year old firefighter. I suffered a herniated disc about 3 months ago. Since then I have been dealing with lower back pain and sciatica. I am a few sessions into physcial therapy, and I have had two cortisone shots in the last 2.5 months. I would like to know if other people have had success with physical therapy, how long did it take to get healed, and is it long lasting? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
