thanks for replying.
I tried all sorts of therapies, osteopats, doctors, even acupuncture... I'm a bit desperate.
those supps you mention, I didn't try them yet. Will do in the future and see what helps...
Been there ... and if its what i think it could be , namely tedon or ligament issue, then mris , x-rays are pretty much useless unless they know what they're looking for.
1 MHZ Ultrasound is useful for me , as is DMSO ( athletes have been using it for years.)
If its available over in Belgium Id consider trying " Prolotherapy " too as option , as it works esp well for backs ( if it is the back)
Soft tissues injuries are notorious to spot or heal , if the pain does feel muscular it could be your muscles are overcompensating ( a common problem for soft tissue injuries ) as well and thus creating a secondary problem that is also masking the original problem ( wherever it is)
It could even be youve had the injury for longer than you think, in which
case , working proprioceptive exercises would also benefit i.e. so you can isolate / get feel of where the problem is / is not , yourself.
I would avoid steriod injections or anything else that reduces inflammation or weakens the tissue , at least until you tried a different approach to see if it helps- keep in mind too you need to be aware of the pain / discomfort in order to stop it , as that is going to be your barometer of which exercises, methods can help.
