Neck Pain

Started by cervy286 on 10/11/2018 8:04am

I have been told I need surgery (ACDF) and a second opinion surgeon said I have moderate to severe cervical stenosis. He wants me to try PT. As anyone else tried PT before surgery? He said that he wants to put off surgery until next yeear as my symptoms are not bad enough yet. I am experiencing pain and stiffness in my neck, chest, top of shoulders, and some foot numbness. I told him all this but he said that he wants me to try PT first. What are your thoughts/experience. The surgery I would have to have is multi - level...he wants to go in through the back and take out my vertebrae and then put screws in, etc. Yikes!
