me too I have had more than 7 mean doctors about my severe spine pain- Chronic- Vancouver, B.C. history of it,
In 1966 I had a horse trauma & horse i WAS RIDING ON fell on me ,then rolled on me , WHOLE 1900 LB. horse WEIGHT, nearly died that day , but no blood ,ruining more than 13 spine bones and disks. Because of dr's lack of concern, laziness to get me mri"s I was left alone with it for many years! I lost my mom and sister over this case at age 22.
THEIR DISBELIEF i EVEN HAD A REMOTE TRAUMA--i GOT SORT OF BLACKLISTED BY DOC'S AND MY FAMILY, # MRI"S came to me 30 years late- all damage in 3 parts of body, SPINE FACETS, CROOKED SPINE (called listhesis) BROKE SHOULDER in the joint ,FROM 1966 Could you e-mail me so we can talk -Same problem as you w. doctors/MEDS.THEIR feAR OF PILLS. The doctors are quite evil and willeven laugh-I am like you I am straight female, I feel "shafted and let down." I WANT TO TALK. I think the 2 stories should go on t.v. " Chronic pain in good people"....

Osteopathy healed my back and neck pain
I had chronic back pain until I found an OSTEOPATH. Osteopaths are MDs and often covered by insurance. They have additional education for gentle manipulation of the body to relieve pain and increase movement from an Osteopathy school. It has been around for over 100 years. None of the chiropractors I saw could help me but the Osteopath helped me very quickly and permanently!

You also must not do anything that aggravates the back so it can heal. I read this from a surgeons book. Don't lift, push or pull anything over 10 pounds or whatever weight aggravates it.
