 Hello Snob! :) Yes it is bad news, but at least he is starting somewhere for treatment with you. Stick with the PT, and it may help some. I still do PT in my home, ands it does help a little. Don't give up at the bad news, and we are here for you anytime you need to rant a little about it. Maybe an Epidural will help too. Mention it to him on your next visit, as I'm guessing that would be his next choice anyway.
