I fell pushing a car out of the mud in December. I tried physical therapy in the beginning, rest, and had a cortisone shot. I can't have an epidural due to allergic reaction to meds. I am having a really hard time with stairs. Going down is manageable, but up is terrible. AFter the 5th time I am holding the railing. I am out of work now but have to go back since I really need the money and temp disablilty only pays 2/3. Any ideas on what will work or help this? Or, do I just need more time? My ortho won't let me do chiroprator or more therapy he feels it will make it worse. He thinks it's a herniated disc but my insurance won't cover $500.00 of the MRI so I can't do that either. I amnot a pill person either.
Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.
