Hi guys I'm suffering with a 7 mm protrusion at l5- s1 and I've made some great progress in coming up to 4 months.
I've gone from not being able to sleep to being able to play golf. However I am far from being pain free. I know that the golf won't help my injury however being able to play has boosted my mental state no end.
The problem I have at the minute is that I'm in England and using the nhs and the neurosurgeon thinks that PT should benifit me greatly , however the PT I've Been sent to is next to useless and I am going to go private after I get back from holiday . All he has done has sent me a email with exercises I should complete which to me is ridiculous as he hasn't shown me the form for the exercises.
I'm trying to complete the exercises however when I'm doing them I can feel the sciatic nerve pulling in my leg I can still compete the exercise if I want. However should I carry it out , I come from a weightlifting background and it doesn't feel like a good stretch it feels like I should stop . Should I ? Or should I carry on?
Also my PT took my leg and started stretching it and it was the same pain and he said he was mobilizing the nerve is this normal?
I think the problem is I have no trust in my PT thanks for the help
