I saw the head PT today after my water work, and she's identified the source of my pain as being a pinched nerve at the base of my spine. The burser may be a little inflamed but the back is the primary source.
So, she treated me with heat, stretching, and ice. I still hurt but she thinks we can have me back in business soon (2 or 3 days) with me doing the treatment at home. I return on Friday (my last PT appt) and we'll see if I need more PT.
She did say it would be alright to continue upper body and light core work. Of course the water jogging, as I found out today, is a littlt challenging, but do-able with a noodle and/or water weights.
For now though, a nap sounds good.
