I am 10 weeks post op of ACDf at C 5/6. I am having terrible muscle tightness across upper shoulders. It is better than right after surgery but hasn't gotten any better in the last few weeks. I am back to work full time which stiffens me up pretty bad.
At my follow up the other day, my Dr. Suggested I try a H Wave Machine. Has anyone tried it? I am waiting to see if insurance covers it but am curious if anyone has had luck with one.
She said she had to put a large spacer ( cad bone) because there was too much movement - joints were slipping. Not sure if i am saying that right. It looks huge compared to my C6/7 which is squished like my 5/6 was. She said that is why I am still having so much tightness/spasms.
