Physical therapy (PT) is a component of rehabilitation to build strength, mobility and fitness. PT may be used short term after an injury or long term following traumatic injury or serious illness such as a stroke to regain as much independence and functioning as possible.
Advice & Tips:
This treatment for my neck/cervical spine was helpful. But, it caused my already lumbar pain to go from 9 on a scale of 1-10 to 10. My neck muscles are so tight that when the therapist manipulated my neck muscles the pain traveled down to my lower back. I gain moderate mobility in my neck, but when it was time to get up off the bed I needed help due to the severe pain in my lower back. I could barely walk after the treatment. I walked like someone that was just injuried. So this treatment had some positive, and negative. I received my last treatment on September 16, 2009. I stopped taking this therapy because OWCP stopped paying for it.
