Last year while playing football, an accident occurred, and I’m suffering from low back pain after the accidental surgery. Physiotherapy was highly recommended to me by the doctor to get fast relief from back pain. But I managed with the situation. Last week, my condition worsened, and I could not tolerate it, so I decided to consult a physiotherapist. I researched massage therapy online and asked them about the method they follow during the treatment. What do you guys think? Is this therapy can rectify my back pain
Does anyone have experience regarding physiotherapy?
I’m somewhat confused as you note: “suffering from low back pain after the accidental surgery”. I think you meant “injury” and not “surgery”. Without knowing the injury dynamics, the specific symptoms and the imaging findings, I would say expect 6-8 weeks of discomfort, use a core strengthening program in PT and avoid impact or contact sports for now.
