Obviously like most of us spiney's have tried physical therapy, meds, and some surgery to get relief.
I have tried physical therapy, and it helps somewhat while I'm going to it, but after all the muscles go back to being tight etc.
I am currently in college and have to let my professors know about my condition, and have struggled immensely this semester.
So far I've had two professors (while I'm sure they were trying to be helpful), be like "Haven't you tried physical therapy?" "You should go all natural herbal way" or "Maybe acupuncture will help take it away," which was the latest one.
I haven't tried acupuncture, and maybe it would help, but I doubt it would take it away...If it did none of us would still be in pain.
My gripe is "How do I explain it to them?" ... I mean both have had some sort of accident, knee surgery, or rotator cuff problem from a car accident , that they took care of I suppose in the advice that they have given me. And I don't want to discard people trying to be helpful, but I think our stuff is a bit more complicated than that.
Well at least mine is. IDK ...Just needed to vent this, cause it's like er "You don't think I've tried Physical therapy before/ anything to get rid of the pain?"
