I went to PT today and my therapist decided to try using a steroid patch on my neck since I have been in pain for almost six months with muscle spasms. I cannot believe how well it worked!! After six months of pain every day today is the first time I have felt somewhat normal since surgery. It is wonderful!
Has anyone ever had the patch applied? I don't go back to PT for a week due to the holiday and was wondering how often they can be used. Also, I wonder how long the patch helps. Hopefully, the steroid will still be in my system tomorrow.
My doctor wanted to inject steroids in the muscle on the right side of my neck but that scared me so much my PT said I should try the patch first. I'm glad I did!
