I had therapy at this place before for me knee (to prevent surgery) and was very successfull for patella femoral knee pain, went away.
So today for my back, was the first real day of therapy (eval was two days ago).
The therapist concentrated on my legs/hamstrings way to much in my opinion. I am a very big guy, 6ft 360lbs, so just lifting out of any chair takes a lot of leg strength.
By the time it was over, and I got home and sat down, I could barely get out of my chair because my legs were so sore.
Did anyone elses therapy start out like this? I really don't want to complain and overstep my bounds, but I will be going to therapy 3 days a week and I can't afford my leg strength to be depleted for "stretches".
He tried several exercises to get my lower back muscles but as I explained to him they werent hitting my back muscle, guess I'm not flexiable enough and never have been lol.
Any advice appreciated. Naturally I will not complain to the therapist as thats what hes educated for, but I also like being able to walk and get out of my chair where I sleep and live 18 hours of the day/night lol.
