Well, I went into my neurosurgeon this week and he certainly wasn't pleased with my progress this past year since my lower back surgery. He was talking about the Dorsal Column Stimulator, shots, nerve oblation, etc. I've tried everything but the Stimulator and I have a tens that helps but very little. I have read a lot on here about success stories related to Aqua Therapy. I have also talked to several people where this was the only thing that saved them. I know that regular physical therapy was causing way more problems than help but I pushed the aqua therapy thing and he found a physical therapy office that specializes in both spinal and aqua therapies. I think they do everything they can to keep the treatments (and money) in house. I had never tried aqua therapy and with the success rates I have found, I'm surprised that I had to push so hard to get my dr. to put me in it especially where everything else has failed. Like I said before, I think they want to keep you in house so they can make more money off you and if they don't offer that type of treatment they just try to push you in a different direction. Anyway, I'm very excited to try this and hopeful that it will improve my condition. I figured I'd post here hoping that something good will come of it. I'll keep you all up to speed and let you know how it goes. If you have any aqua therapy experiences, please share them. I have no idea what to expect. All I know is I hear it is one of the more successful rehab treatments.
Wish me luck!!! Pain Free wishes to all my spiney friends.
