I have scoliosis & my orthopedic doctor has sent me to physical therapy. She said since im in pain so much, she want to see if physical therapy can strengthen my muscles around my spine. I have gone to 7 sessions of PT & every time I leave the place, im in worse pain then the time before. I get very fatigued & within an hour afterwards, im in serious pain. I hate the fact I gotta go home & lay in bed with heating pads & take several doses of pain meds just to lower my pain.
I am thinking of calling my physical therapist & calling it quits for the rest of the sessions. I have an appointment with my ortho doctor on Sept 9th & will explain everything to her then. I also sent her an email last Friday but she never got back to me. Is it a good idea to just quit physical therapy because I am hurting so bad after each session? I also told my therapist about the pain but they think its not as bad, I hate people like this that think therapy is the cure of everything.
Anyway, what do you guys think? Should I just quit therapy? It seems my primary doctor understands my pain, unlike my ortho doc.
