I had my first PT appointment today since the surgery. My Dr has also ordered Work Conditioning. I was wondering if anyone else has done this and did it help? What exactly do they have you doing. I understand it is to regain strength for my job but kinda worried about it. I'm overweight and while I push myself I don't like the idea of anyone else pushing me.
On a brighter note the therapist said I am a lot stronger than he expected. Most people are weaker after the surgery. He said he was pleasently suprised by my current ablities. He was also kind of concerned with my L5/S1 level. When he was checking for tenderness everything else was good but I about came up off the table when he was pushing at that level.
