Good Morning everyone :H I had a microdisectomy in May, I have had low back pain ever since. Recently I was diagnosed with both hip bursitis and sent to have iontophoresis with dexamethasone to the area. My first P.T. visit she had me do hamstring stretches and some hip strengthing. I came home and did what she told me to do. I couldn't walk for days, the pain was to intense and it caused my back to hurt even more. I was not able initially to have any p.t. after surgery do to nerve pain which I still have. What role does hamstrings play in low back pain, as I recall I have always had tight hamstrings. I have a apt. tomorrow and now I am fearful to do what she asks. I know the saying, no pain, no gain, but I also do not want to make my situation worse. Some folks swear by p.t. and some folks swear at it, I truly do not know what to do, any suggestions please would be greatly appreciated.
