    Hope your feeling better with that virus thingy! Take care and thanks!
  • Kristen, I am new to this as well. I have severe stenosis C5-6-7. They have started me in PT but my symptoms are rough and I have a tough desk and field job. I don't know how long they'll let me go with this until trying to fix it

    Most doctors try the conservative approach such as starting you with PT unless you have blatant issues that compromise your safety and spine. Years back I had severe stenosis in my lower lumbar region and went thru a similar protocol until a laminectomy was done to repair the problem. That was 7 years ago and it still hasn't given me any more problems in that area.
    Now my cervical spine is whole different animal.
  • But sometimes won't physical therapy just tend to further irritate the problem? I know when I went years ago it aggravated it more than helping it. And I dint have near the problems in there that I do now.

    My experience with PT has been really good but that has been mostly post-op. You bring up a valid point that in some cases it may make the problem worse. I guess like most things it would depend on the attending physician, they all have their different ways.
    Hope you can get better soon and put those neck issues to rest.
    Take care,
