I am in week three of an intensive rehab program. After 7 surgeries, I am giving it a go again with PT. After a battery of tests, the team determined that I have about 7-9 degrees range of motion in my Lumbar and Thoracic spine.
Treatment has begun, and they are "flexing" my rig-cage and working my thoracic spine to hopefully restore some blood flow and increase movement. I can tell you that these have been the worst three weeks I have endured other than dealing with a staph infection post-op.
Has anyone undergone PT in the thoracic spine area, and was there any success? I am committed to giving this all I have, but now I have my existing lumbar/leg pain and this new, INCREDIBLE thoracic pain. My guts actually hurt! We slowed down some last week, but I was hoping for some success stories if there are any out there............
