you seem to know an awful lot about the injury, the treatments, and the better doctors who treat them.

the doctor i've been seeing told me Meyers would do exactly what he's been prescribing - a month of PT, if no results, a cortizone injection, then another month of PT. Still, if nothing, then surgery is the next option. That's pretty much the only reason I haven't gone down to see Dr. Meyer's on my own. I've been following the protocal given to my doctor by Dr Meyers. Are you familiar with that treatment?
- PT
- Cortizone shot, more PT
- Ultimately, surgery

If surgery seems to be the only thing that can actually "fix" this problem, why the hesitation to prescribe the surgery? other than the obvious risks that go along with surgery.

thanks again.


that dr. would be incorrect. i went to meyers after having the problem for 3 months. long story short: he put me on the table, poked around, and we scheduled surgery. one year later, and i still feel great. the only thing he wanted beforehand was an mri. the word "cortizone" never escaped his lips. the PT was AFTER the surgery not before.
