Thought I'd let everyone interested I'm back home after 2 weeks of spine rehab at the University of Iowa..
What an AWESOME program.
I went in feeling like crap and in constant pain after 2 surgeries, the 2nd being a 2 level fusion.
They were awesome with helping out with my rehab and if anyone else is interested in the program that has cronic back pain email me and I will give you the info on contacting them.
It feels great to be able to move around and not be in as much pain.
I know that I will always have some pain but I'm greatful to them for what they have done and the acomplishment I have made with their help.
My initial range of motion when I went in was a 10 degree foreward bend and a 2 degree back bend and now I'm at 32 degree foreward and a 12 degree back. That is a 69% increase in 2 WEEKS!
If I keep up on the exercizes and do what I learned,there is no limit to what I can do in the future.
Just had to toot a horn for myself and the University of Iowa's Spinal Rehab Center.
By the way it also feels great to be back home with my family and friends here on the net.
