The first visit, after the initial eval, I get this big long spiel about
how the only way my back will "heal" without surgery is to rest it as much as possible. Avoid bending, lifting, etc.
The second visit, two days later, they give me the same bit about
the need to rest my back and then proceed to give me the exercises to do.
The following visit I am then told not to do any exercises but to start laying down every two hours for 15 minutes on my stomach with a pillow under my legs and another under my chest even though when they tried that in during the eval it sent all kinds of pain shooting down my legs.
The 4th visit it was...just dont use the pilllows.
5th and 6th visit after telling them that laying on my stomach for more than a couple of minutes was causing me a lot of back pain was basically told to stay the course.
Maybe I am being somewhat paranoid but I really wonder if this is nothing more than a round about
attempt trying to pressure me into surgery, which I have stated many times over I am not in favor of at this time, nor am I able to do it due to the demands of being the primary care giver to my 4 year old son.
