I have to vent.
I've been going to PT and it has helped and it's hurt too. My last 2 walks I could barely get through due to pain and that has never happened. My neck is looser so that's good but geeze!
I've had to tell them to lighten the arm bike each time. I forgot and did it as they set it today BIG MISTAKE! I also gave in and laid on my stomach for the massage they give just before they hold my head in their hands and stretch it to a scary degree. I've refused and requested a chair prior to today.
I also had to limit them on the weight they wanted me to lift over my head!
PT has always saved my butt in the past but I'm wondering about this time. If I didn't have 40 years experience as a fitness specialist and hadn't gone to tons of PT in the past I think I would be in bad shape. I would have done all they wanted me to and paid big time for it.
I want range of motion so I know I need to do some of the neck stretching but I think they're getting way too aggressive.
I'm going to talk to them Monday and tell them this is not working. Changes are needed or I'm going else where.
This is the PT my doctor uses so he's suppose to be good but I think I'm running into my common problem. I'm very petite! I had a terrible time with the anesthesia because they gave me too much. I think the PT isn't use to working on wee little people. I look strong and am but I only weigh a 100 pounds and some change on a good day.
Be careful when you go for PT. If it hurts refuse to do it!
