This video is inspiring.

I have seen a lot of differences in the quality of physical therapy facilities. If you are in the California workers' compensation system and have reached the 24 cap limit on physical therapy, you can ask your doctor about alternatives such as home exercise or even if if a gentle yoga class or senior yoga class (even if you are not a senior) is ok for you. I have even found classes that are for those in wheelchairs or who have difficulties walking. There are also videos and exercises on spine health website geared for specific injures.

Always talk to your doctor first before attempting any exercise program.
