After I had my back surgery I went to physcial therapy. I thought at first it was helping, but after 2 months of therapy, I really didn't see much use of continuing. I was walking 1 mile a day and the hospital I work in is a walk and a half everyday. I tried doing physical therapy excerises I learned quite a while after the therapy session were over, without much relief. It seems to me that if you do everything your doctors want you to do and it doesn't help, they just throw the towel in and say..well, you will probably have chronic pain the rest of your life. It is so disheartening. I am sure there are many on this blog that have went thru PT. Did anyone have any better luck with it? For me it was a waste of my time and money. I do continue to walk and some days it's really hard, but I do not want to be seditary and is even worse on your back. I told one doctor he could go to PT and I would trade my back for his anyday. I have done everything my doctors have asked me to do and still have chronic pain. Let me hear about your physical therapy stories. Blessings...missourigal
