Question motherof2

My PT has done this for me on my lower back because that is what my perscription is for ...I had a sprain...and it feels great....My question is...she won't do it for the REST of my painful back, because the Rx is for for my lower back and not the upper back or neck ETC...,

I don't know how to convince her that it would help my whole body . Why are PT's restricted to the one specific area of the back for treatment by the Rx

I think the myofacial release massage would benefit my lower back pain, even if it's the upper back that hurts as well...

Anyway..I just thought I'd ask a "professional" opinion as long as I had you here...
