I would never have thought my back pain was from scar tissue. I went to pt exam and treatment. At first I did not have much faith in Pt as they have not helped much in the past. I chose my doctor's physical therapy in his building which is part of a very large Orthopedic group here in Illinois. Let me tell you, from the start this younger guy knew what my pain could be from. Scar tissue. I've had two fusions. I'm fused l2-s1. He did massage and other modalities and really worked on the scar tissue along both sides of my spine. What a difference. I was able to cut back on my pain medication. I had to stop therapy because I got sick for a month and now I'm starting up again. Now, I'm having pain at where they took out my left bone graft ( I think ) it's like a searing pain in only one spot and boy does it hurt. I'm hoping he will know what to do. I'm happy I went back to pt.
