WOW, I think I would get an appt and get back into see my dr. Its time for a new PT person. I have never heard of anyone being told to bend over every hour, thats just nuts. I also know that peole with back problems should not lay on their stomachs, per my orthopedic. In fact most people are unable to lay on their stomach that have back problems. Is theis person trying to try you for a marathom of some sort? Sorry-but I would kick that one to the curb and get another one. Of course we have all had some mild pain when first start in PT but what is going on here does not sound right.
