Clif describes his physical therapy experience here:
I wore a cervical collar (neck brace) for 13 weeks, but my neck didn’t heal correctly, so I had to have surgery. My doctor put 4 screws and a plate in my C6 and C7 vertebrae. Four weeks later, I started physical therapy.
When I first started, I couldn’t turn my neck enough to look over my shoulders. I knew this had to improve so that I would be able to drive safely and comfortably. I was also worried that I wouldn’t have the range of motion needed to swing a golf club.
So far, my range of motion has improved significantly, and my pain has decreased. I haven’t been back on the golf course yet, but I did go bowling last week – and bowled my highest score ever!
Clif lives in Ringgold, Virginia. He is a salesman at Riverside Roof Truss.
