Hi. I'm 18 and recently went to the doctor where they took an x-Ray and said my back was inflamed and that I should start physical therapy. He recommended I take 3 prescription ibuprofen along with 2 Tylenol. I had a few questions that I was hoping some of you could help with.
I've never done physical therapy, so I was hoping some of you could give me advice on that. My back hurts with any amount of activity, is there any way to help me avoid huge amounts of pain during therapy?
Also, does anybody know what will help with the pain? Heating pad, ice pack, etc?
And lastly, what happens if the therapy doesn't help my back?
Thanks for your time.
