I had quite a bit of physio on mine (massage and the magic electric pulsing machine) when it first flared up in 2016 - it worked mostly, but there was one patch of inflammation I could not get rid of.  I still get some pain, but manage it with ice after every proper walk - 20 minutes ice, then a shower, and then another 20 minutes - seems to keep it under control.  Still niggles occasionally, but nothing major.
Thanks for the suggestion

As back to where I started with my injuries, (in fact worse as I have a few more!), wondered how the walking wounded are getting on?

I have started small trips out to see how it goes.  The first day I made just over 450m and it took 2 days to get over it despite immediate application of ice.  Next trip was yesterday, I lasted 2.5km but it took a while to get home followed by another hour with the gel pack.  Today I did 3km and it did not hurt quite as much.  The distressing thing is Mrs N, who was 69 miles behind me,  is using my incapacitation to catch me up.  >:(

I had no major pain after my last walk, but have had some sciatica this week.
