Hello. I am 9 months post op. I have been experiencing extreme tightness in my lower skull and upper neck, that has been progressively worse in the last few weeks, and causing a great deal of fatigue. Heat helps a little, but not much. My NS did not recommend PT in the first few months after surgery due to CSF leaks; they have all resolved a few months ago. Today, I received a note from his PA that he will prescribe PT and that Range of motion exercises, stretching, building endurance, massage, TENS may be beneficial in relieving the tightness in the neck. I have seen some posts here that some pt has been more harmful than good and would like to hear from those who have had PT. I plan on making an appointment for a full consultation before I begin, but value all of your opinions first. Thank you all so much!
