I fell off my bike 9 months ago and it caused what has now been diagnosed as a lower back bulge (no lower back pain - just numbness in foot which is persistent). doc says xrays reveal it should not need surgery.
I tried physical therapy and it did not do much. I have had steroids pills and a shot in the back - did nothing except make me feel toxic.
Last thing I tried was bike riding and it feels great but it also increases the numbness. Used to do elliptical an hour a day as I have one at home. Have not done it in months due to it also casing flair up. Not sure what to do now.
