Physical therapist / trainer recommendation?
Hi BPN - I herniated a disc in my lower back several years ago which has caused sciatica and other issues. I've been told by doctors not to do any activities that involve weights or twisting (yoga), so I've been walking as my only form of exercise. When I initially injured myself, I saw a PT covered by insurance, but that office only did brief sessions and mostly gave instructions on at-home exercises. To be honest, I've been anxious to exercise on my own since I could easily re-aggravate my injury with a wrong move.
Are there any physical therapists out there who do longer, training-style sessions? Basically, I'd like to find a PT who could safely supervise a workout to improve my core strength, more in the style of a personal trainer. Berkeley / Albany / El Cerrito would be the most convenient. Thanks!
