    It might help us if you tell us a little more about the nature of the injury. At least you're not in AFG, what province?

    If it's still injured dont try to strengthen the muscles to much. First find the reason you are still in pain and fix it. Look into decompression therapy, inversion tables and PT.

    DONT do injection except as a last resort.

    Focus on getting it healed or you might be in the same boat as me 2 surgeries later because I ignored it for 25 years.

    I'm guessing Kandahar.
