History: Radiculopathy of 2 years duration, x-rays, MRIs and nerve tests completed, tried many forms of treatment; acupuncture, yoga, Pilates, epidurals, etc., saw 3 different surgeons with 3 different diagnoses. December 4, 2017 - Posterior lumbar decompression-L4/5. Uneventful recovery. Pain has been reduced from a level 8 burning pain to a level 3 aching pain, most days.
I have been referred to PT. I will be going to PT twice a week for 12 visits total. Currently, just had my first visit. 12 exercises to be completed twice a day.
Question: Do you feel that PT was helpful/successful in reducing post-surgical pain, and if so, of how much benefit? Thank you!
