I hurt my back 3 weeks ago, I had an MRI and it turns out that I have bulging discs at s1-l5 and the two discs above that one. I had an ESI 15 days ago.
Today my left leg is essentially useless. I can walk, although with a limp. I would rate the power of the leg at 30% of normal. Th leg is numb and feels quite strange.
Saw the doc yesterday and his prescription was for PT.
I'm quite frustrated with the pain and the weka was and am wondering if PT is a normal approach to improve leg strength?
I'm a competitive cyclist so my legs are very strong, so I'm just not sure how PT help the. nerve issue.
