I've had ischial tuberosity pain on both sides for 18 months. I can't be sure what started it off, maybe a fall I had a month earlier. I do have a sacroilliac joint problem and some degeneration of the 5th transitional vertebra of the spine. I've had steroid injections.. didn't last. Acupuncture... no good. now physio. Some of the exercises were making it worse and I've been told now I must only do the 2 they have given to me... and no more.I'm to limit any walking... I like walking! I'm not supposed to do any gardening, etc. I'm on my own and have house & garden to maintain. I try to keep fit and maintain my flexibility and strengthen my core to help support my back and internal organs. At my age... 66 this is important. esp for a woman. I had depression some years ago and found exercise really beneficial... although I gave up jogging because of knee trouble. I'm at a loss now what I'm supposed to do for the next 3-6 months of inactivity which they say might improve it. Has anyone had a similar bursitis problem which they manage to find a permanent cure for?
