Physical Therapist or Physiotherapist 's  Response

as mentioned about the symptoms, by seeing the history I can understand that the symptoms can be related to the neck surgery. but depending upon what the MRI scan report reveals the further management can be planned. Also the echo of the heart will reveal if any pathology is there. Usually post neck surgery there is a need to strengthen the muscles to avoid the pinching of the nerve. But most patients take it litely and do not perform. And certain times the symptoms recoccur. with the help of a physical therapy things can fall better into the place.

with the grace of God I wish a good health
