Chiropractor after Lumbar Fusion???
Hi Everyone, I am seriously considering going to my chiropractor (if he is even willing to treat me) for upper back and neck pain. My neck has been killing me for 2 months, since my lumbar fusion, I blame it on lying in bed with this laptop, LOL! But now my upper back is dying off as well, possibly related to weaning out of my TLSO. My NS said I can get my neck adjusted, not my back for 9 months at least. Well, I never want a chiro to touch my lumbar spine, but oh my if I could get someone to pop my upper back/lower neck it would be wonderful. Have any of you had chiropractic treatment after surgery. It is a totally different area than my surgical area, but I am still hesitant, but miserable
. I am getting massage every 2 weeks, only helps for the day, and then back to this again. My YMCA therapy pool is broken, so missing out on that soothing treatment as well. And my new PT is making my low back hurt in the SI joints. Missing my Chiro, but probably a bad idea, huh? :?
