Bridgett, I have done physical therapy at least 4 times and it never helped, it made my pain worse. And one time we hit a deer and the chiro that I was seeing took advantage of my Insurance, Big Time!! For a year I used his machine, it was all in one that was adjustable for different people and different stations for different exercises. I gradually worked into it and it did not help one bit, did not strengthen my neck muscles either.
The Rheumy that I saw said no PT especially with the rubber bands. He said swimming or water aerobics.
