Chronic pain from thorocolumbar spinal stenosis, fractured superior endplate, spinal faucet syndrome, arthritis in the hips. And ddd. And copd. I asked the Dr. If I could try aqua therapy, he said okay. I went for a evaluation he only had spinal stenosis down I had to tell him all the rest. He continued a careless pushing on my spine and proceeded to get on the table and place a arm on each shoulder and put is weight on me
, he said oh we will have you running to the store and getting your own groceries. With that I was done. I thought we would devise a plan togeather.
I spent the next few days trying to quite things down again in my back. However I was excited about getting in the water. Once in a noticed a feeling of someone standing on my chest, and the heat took a lot out of me. The therapist got right to work following a 1,2,3 type therapy written on a big board. I was experiencing pain but she continued to push. I left and again I had to spend the next few days quiet ing things back down. My family advices me not to return, but I decided one more try. Well again we started the one size fits all routine, and dispute my optimism, She tried to force a straight posture I have a slight hump. I told her it was painful and she insisted I try harder. Between the pressure on my chest , and exhaustion from the heat I keep trying. Once home I started to experience, tingling in my hands, a st and half headache which I never really had a lot of headaches but this was horrible. And a feel I g of my spine throbbing, when I stand. Now my family is saying it's one thing g to watch you suffer day to day, but this is to much to ask us to see you bring more upon yourself. I put off anymore until I see my Dr. And now I beat myself up, as I feel I failed. Any opinions?
