I left a message for my doctor to contact me with other options and wanted to know more about manipulation. Has anyone had it? What was it like? What did you do in therapy after MUA? How soon were you back to what would be considerate normal? I have to be back at work by the end October.
I know therapy is painful, I made sure I had pain meds in me. Also 93 isn't bad for me at 6 weeks out. It will get there, I think. . Be sure to do exercises at home too. I didn't have mua, but I finally reached 120 at 10 weeks. Don't give up.
