I had 8 months of PT prior to my lumbar fusion, which did absolutely nothing but make me more comfortable. I had ultrasound, Stim, massage
, and traction. Then, I had 10 weeks of PT after my surgery, which absolutely helped. That time, I had water therapy, and land therapy including stim. I guess as my back got worse, the PT stopped working as well. I also had PT years ago, which seemed to help at that point.
