YES!!! I was sent originally for Lower Back. They want to use heat, my back yells if I heat it... I respond better to cold. I can't bear my own wait on my hips all the time, there solution was stretches and stuff that put my back in *more* pain... I still do them at home. They gave me a print out of all the exercises they wanted me to do. I do them, but I don't do 10 or 15 at a time like they wanted I do 5 at a time... then go about my business... then 30 min to an hour later do another 5. I still get the quantity done, just not as quickly as they wanted me to do them.
Also, they had a Electro-Stem machine (not TENS) the moment they hook me up to it, it triggers a migraine within 5 min. After about 5 times of this I flat out told the PT I can't handle this. He then told me PT wasn't a good choice for my neck and I should just do the exercises at home.... I for the life of you can't tell you what they are, cuz they didn't give me a print out ....
I was doing Water Therapy for a while in a nice 89 to 92 degree pool. It helped a lot! I would encourage you to request it, and see if it helps ya any....
Good Luck and you are not alone
