New to the site and am on Day 4 of SEP! a little background first...I've been dealing with back issues for about 2 years now. A doctor told me I have a herniated L5 S1, saw a chiro briefly that didn't help, then started seeing a PT 2 times a week that I liked a lot and actually improved me a lot. Enough for me to be able to function halfway normal and even go to the gym! I always had my back condition on my mind and things would still flare up, so I was always caution. Then about 2 weeks ago I had debilitating back spasm that left me in the hospital for 2 days unable to move. I finally regained enough range of motion to hobble out of there with some crutches then laid on my back for the next week. Slowly, the spasm subsided enough for me to walk carefully, but more on that later. A week into my back vacation I stumbled onto the 20/20 vid then some other videos and websites, then bought Dr. Sarno's Healng Back Pain and finished it in 3 days (and I don't really read that much). Every page described me, I was hooked and continued studying and doing SEP. I still after 2 weeks from the initial attack have a spasm in my lower back that won't let me bend over or move in certain directions without causing the pain. I've been using Dr. Sarno's techniques and have feel as though I'm starting to have improvements in other areas but this one spasm (and pain) seems to still persist (they may have been slight improvements every day, but still not enough to bend over to tie my shoe). I know the program takes time and I shouldn't expect anything over night but... My question is, do I go to my PT or find some other way to deal with the acute spasm? Or continue the program and it should eventually work its way out? Thanks in advance.
