I started PT on Tues. The Therapist, did some light massage, then ultrasound, and then strapped round T-8 in a square. This strapping stays on until tomorrow's appt. Don't know if they will replace it, move it, or? Also gave me a couple of exercises. I know the thoracic area is concerned with deep muscles in back and stomach. My stomach muscles have hurt ever since he did the strapping, and sometimes getting in and out of car, both front and back muscles scream! :''( Has anyone on here had that done? I'm not a realy big believer in PT, as I've had it several times before, and the benefits don't seem to last. Therapist will also work on cervic and lumbar areas, if we can get thoracic area flare to quiet down. Any input appreciated.
