28 Dec Groin Pain Radiating To Lumbar Area: Nothing Helped Until Astym Therapy
Experiencing frequent quick painful “catches” in groin area causing me to lose my balance and was unable to move until I positioned my leg by hand inward to put what it felt like back in the socket. I could be walking along and all of a sudden I felt like my hip displaced out of the socket and many times losing my balance and falling. Nothing serious was revealed on SI X-Rays or the MRI. Had injections of steroids, PT series, nothing helped until I had Astym Therapy. One of the physical therapists found a pad of tissue in an old incision area on one of my X-Rays which had been overlooked by doctors. There were also adhesions, which had developed from a old pelvic fracture in a serious car accident.
Since Astym Treatment, the pain, and catches in my groin or SI area are corrected. I actually told my doctor that I think I needed a hip replacement but was wanting to try one more round of physical therapy and told him someone had recommended a physical therapist who is certified to do Astym Therapy. It has made a big difference in my back pain. I am a totally new person! I now am walking 1-2 miles three times a week after 5 years.
