Proper Physical Therapy Procedure?

Started by DonaldB on 07/16/2012 9:27pm

I was injured on the job and was experiencing back pain. Was sent to a physical therapist for treatment of a pulled muscle and pain from neck. A procedure that was used on me during one of the sessions was that I would lay on my back on a table. The physical therapist had his forearm over my chest, placed one of his legs over my legs and placed his fist underneath my back. Then he pressed his forearm on my chest which caused my back to make a cracking sound. I seemed to have progressively worse symptoms (burning and weakness in left leg and left arm weakness) since this procedure and just wanted a professional opinion on what type of procedure this was, if any.
