Okay, when the pain doc wanted me to go to PT it was for my neck that was giving me a lot of problems. I had been to a chiro that knows about fibro and that only seemed to aggravate it and massages only aggravated it more. The CAT scan showed a little osteo arthritis so I new the problem was fibro related and the more people worked on my neck the worse it got. Common sense said "keep people away from your neck" and I listened and it has gotten better. So my question is for people that are going to PT what do they hope to gain from it???
Sherrine is right, I've had some bad experiences with massage til I found the right set of hands to give them.
When it comes to fibro it's all trial and error to find what works for each person. Our treatment has to be tailored for us personally.
luv and hugs
