Do You Feel Physical Therapy Helps

Do You Feel Physical Therapy Helps

My physical therapy ended because my insurance will not pay for anymore sessions
I try to do the exercises at home
Each Theripist has different ideas

I o not think PT is the answer. And fibro is accepted now because it has a medical code called ICD-10. That is what the Drs send to insurance to have them pay. Get copies of your charts no matter what you go to the Dr for. Piece you disease together. Then find a good Dr and let them see your struggle. If they are decent they will work with you to find the answer.

I think PT helps but you do need to keep it up at home. You also need to be careful and cut back when you feel worse.

This past summer I was referred by a friend who has MS to her physical therapist. I had to pay out of pocket and unfortunately, I had to suspend treatments when money got too tight. I did find that pool therapy and massage helped greatly. I really think exercise is the key along with Lyrica and Cymbalta and restorative sleep. It's a vicious cycle if we don't get restorative sleep because then we hurt, we are irritable, tense, hurt worse, then stress, hurt worse and then don't sleep. It's all about balance I guess.

I would just be happy to find a doctor that would take the time to sit with me for a few minutes and actually learn what is going on with me and my symptoms.
