“In many cases, if the patient had the patient subjected themselves to the rest associated with the surgery, and skipped the surgery, the results would have been just as good.” -Dr. Stuart McGill
We find this to be so true!
Sometimes rest is all you need to get to get out of pain.
Find a great clinician who will spend time assessing you and finding your pain triggers.
Remove those pain triggers and desensitize the system.
Maybe rest and very low-level activity is what you need during this time. Imagine you just had surgery — don’t do anything that you wouldn’t do if you had the surgery!
Reintroduce pain-free movement.
Reintroduce originally painful triggers gradually as you build tolerance.
