Re: How soon after ACDF did you start P.T.?
I didn't have any PT. I was in the Aspen Brace for 6 weeks and then once that was removed I was told to be careful but I would eventually gain all of the range of motion that was possible. It took about 4 months for me to no longer notice myself "stiff turning" my neck and gradually I got better all due to be cautious with everyday activities.
