I don't understand why your replies are being deleted by the moderator. Anyway good luck with your problems. I am so relieved to know the the L3 disc in my back is causing the pain in my thighs and hips. The epidural cortisone injection I had on 12/21 is still helping me. I don't know how long the relief will last but I hope for a few months. I am planning to try an inversion table for my slipped disc (L3). Does anyone have any experience with an inversion table for back problems and, if so, which brand is a good one?
As with all overuse injuries, doing too much, too soon can be a major contributing factor in developing Hip Bursitis. When beginning or stepping up a running program, gradual progress must be made. For example, it is impossible to increase from running 2 miles per day one week to running 10 miles per day the next week, because the tissues of the body are not prepared for the increased stress and they may fail under the increased load. By gradually increasing the training intensity, frequency and duration the tissues can adapt without a problem.
