Lower Back Pain into left leg
I'm a 39 year old female who was involved a car accident back in the beginning of December. I have had two MRI's the most recent one was on Friday. The findings were L5-S1 broad based posterior disc protrusion with associated posterior annulat tear as well as the disc being desiccated.
I have tried P.T. but was recently taken out of it because of the possibility it was hurting more than helping. I have also had three spinal steroid injections. None have worked. The pain is sometimes off the charts. What options are left for treatment?
