Can someone recommend a good Physical Therapist for mild disk protrusions?
Just received the results of my c-spine MRI and I have 2mm disk bulge/protrusions between C5-6 & C6-7. The neurologist prescribed PT and massage along with ultrasound, TENS, and traction. As a trainer & group fitness instructor who teaches 20+ classes per week there's no way I can limit my movement so I want to find a PT who works with athletes. I live in Redondo Beach, CA, does anyone have any recommendations?
Hope this is helpful to you.
I hope that this helps, and that you're completely recovered by now!
The answer to your question depends a lot on a couple of factors: they type of group class that's involved, and the degree to which the instructor is an 'active participant.' For example, I train teams and small groups of athletes. Depending on the actual session involved (e.g. is it a weight training session, or something like a plyometric or speed training session) my active involvement varies. If I were to try to actively participate in several plyometric training sessions in a week, I might find myself injured, whereas if I'm merely supervising and/or demonstrating a weight training session, I may be able to do several of those in a week.
So, take a look at what type of group sessions you're talking about and see where that answer leads you.
Good luck, and stay healthy!
