Range of motion 1 year post-op C5-C7 fusion
I had a nasty injury to my neck in 2003. I had C5/C6 Posterior discectomy in 2004. I just hit my one year anniversary C5-C7 Anterior fusion. Great Neurosurgeon. Quick recovery. No real issues per se.
I have tightness with my range of motion with no pain. Is this tightness due to my anatomy - ligaments, etc.? Or, am I messing with with my good levels above and below the fusion by pushing for more range of motion - with no pain. Anytime I have pain I stop doing whatever it is - dishes, cleaning, etc.
