Hello! I had an ACDF of C4-6 last year due to nerve damage and pain. I was feeling great and real happy I choose surgery.
I recently started working again, 1st time in over a year. I only work 3.5 hours a day as a clerk in a store where I get to sit and relax during customers. Over the last month I have started to get pain in the back of my neck. It is now extremely sore and burning! I have been icing for days. I have lost my health insurance and can't go see the doctor for PT. I never completed my PT after surgery due to lack of money and am I regretting that choice!
I realized that the looking down at the register all day is killing me! What can I do? Any PT ideas I can do at home? Thanks!
PS I still have a herniated disk in C3 and L5-S1.
