I am on month 7 of probable trochanteric bursitis and maybe gluteal tendonitis. I have done 2 rounds of PT and am continuing the exercises.I have had 2 steroid injections that worked great…for 2-3 weeks then the pain returns with a vengeance. I haven’t had a MRI but really don’t think any gluteal tensions are torn because I think the injections wouldn’t have helped that much and the exercises would make them worse.
So, I am ready to try PRP or similar even though I have to pay for it. I have vacations planned for this fall and next spring that demand walking and it would be nice to be able to walk a pain free. Right now, walking is dicey. Riding my horse doesn’t bother it …the one (and only) positive.
How do you find a good provider? There are a couple franchises in town but I am a little leery of them.
