I am getting frusterated. I have been through 2 weeks of PT- 6 more to go (as required by my insurance). I do like my PT but I am confused, sore and frusterated.
On our first session she said if she did not see improvement in 3-5 sessions she woudl send me back to my NS. Each session has been different. She keeps trying to find something that works for me. She is now working on my lumbar area and believes that my weakness in my lower half is causing my neck pain...... I said I think the herniated discs and movement in my neck is causing my neck pain! The funny thing is- that prior to PT I rarely had neck pain but constantly had the arm stuff going on. Now my days are full of neck pain.
She wants me to concentrate on keeping my neck up right and shoulders dropped but this is my problem. It hurts like heck and I start getting shooting pain into my neck and arms.
I feel like I am hurting more each time I see her than before I started. I have been in a solid flare for the last 2 weeks. She say's it is because my muscles are waking up.
I have allso been using my electromagnetic therapy machine. But I have noticed that after I remove it, I am feeling like it is still pulsating down my arms? Maybe I am doing it wrong?
