Advice Anyone?

Hi, I am an active 41 year old male. 5 years ago I was diagnosed with hip bursitis in my left hip. I went to physical therapy, had cortisone injections, iced the hip, etc., all to no long term benefit.

In April of 2003, I had a pain in my lower back while playing basketball with my son. The next day, in my left shoulder blade area I had a throbbing pain. Went to the doctor and he injected the shoulder area and the pain temporarily subsided but never completely left. By mid-summer, tying my shoes each morning was a lot of trouble as my lower back was so sore and hurt so much. I went back, had an MRI and was told I had slight bulge in L4/L5, small tear in the disc, and some disc degeneration.

I think this was the root cause of my hip problem all along.

Any advice on what I should do if physical therapy doesn't rectify the problem?
