I break down and cry too when people say they cant help me (esp when it is their JOB to help me!!). It really makes you feel alone in your pain and misunderstood.
Some of his point sounded good though, at least he doesnt want to waste your money or just keep hurting you. But at the same point, its not like you are in the position to do a bunch of sit ups! hehehe Walking around the block or swimming can be good options.
Have you ever tried getting a yoga DVD from the library? They have ones for injured backs that are really good stretches that I bet would feel good! You just have to make sure your neck is relaxed while you are doing it. And that would strengthen your core without you barely knowing it! : -) Good luck & Im sorry you were in pain and you didnt get the care you needed that day, hope you can give it to yourself now---we are getting good at that arent we?!
