I have been getting physical therapy for about 6 mos. now per my pain management Clinician's suggestion.
Like once before, today, they will give me a tablet where I will have to answer questions about my pain level and progress. P. Therapy has helped very much, I'm scared if I indicate that I'm having pain today they may assess that they're not helping and release me or discharge me.

Hello Laura I'm Dr Chip

What kind of pain are you having now?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
The same as what I came in for, but I've improved, I have shoulder ,neck pain, scalp nerve pain, and headache...from a collision.

Well, there's no need to worry Laura

Just because your pain may have suddenly worsened wouldn't mean that they'd discharge you from physical therapy--they'd just modify the treatment for now to accommodate the pain

Please let me know if you need any more information

Ok. Thank you. I will be honest about my level today. One more thing, For past two visits I got the new pt in the office who didnt know me, of course. After each of her visits, i have been unable to use my neck or turn it, and it was spasmed , sore, stiff, & no mobility. I got an appt. in a different time frame which got me one of my orig. PTs. When she asks how My neck etc is, Im not sure how to tell her with out pointing finger at a co worker's results.
That will be all , thanks

Just be honest and tell her all about your pain--there's no problem in doing that

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
