Hello from JA
This is a great question and has happened to many.
And there is a perfect answer. Let me know though if you have more details or questions....so.....
You need physical therapy.
But the correct therapy.
Do not go based on the order of anyone other than a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist, especially in this situation. This is an MD who spends his/her post graduate training on full body structural diagnosis and manual medicine therapies and treatment..you might need, physical therapy that is tailored to you, home exercise, traction, electronic therapy, injections, etc.......
This should happen before any consideration of surgical repair, although this is needed in some cases...if so, the PM&R doc can help you get through this better as well.
Let me know if you have further questions.
