swollen facet joint causing hamstring pain.
(Belfast, Northern Ireland)
Hi there. I have had a feeling of tightness in my left hamstring for a long time. I love triathlon especially running but the problem has really effected it. After getting numerous sports massages I was recommended a physiotherapist in Dungannonwhich which practice your method. They are excellent and the pain/tightness has improved with massage of the facet joint as well as my work with the back block and excercises. I now have 4 weeks until the next appointment to start building on my swimming and possibly biking but I feel the improvement is one which seems to be there then it goes back to feeling the scrappy again. I just don't have any confidence in the improvement. My physio has said that it will take time but what is the general success rate for the sciatic nerve being "untrapped " by the swollen facet joint? Also how long does it usually take and are there any tips that I couldn't speed my recovery up I'm really getting feed up with this injury I just need to get back to exercise without feeling I can't do it because of my hamstring/back.
Thanks so much.
