I hurt my back catching someone from falling in a shower at work. The doctors said I have a lumbar and thoracic sprain. I was injured at the end of January, and I'm still in so much pain. I see a chiropractor 3x a week, but he's not sure why I'm not healing. By the end of the day, I'm almost in tears I'm in so much pain. Sometimes I get sharp pain in my back, and I had sharp pain when I breathed but he adjusted my ribs and I breathe fine now. I still get sharp pain in my back and then this horrible, intense pressure/throbbing/cramping feeling from like the core of my thoracic cavity. My sternum is also very tender if pressed on.
Has anybody else felt like this? Was there anything that helped? I'm on restrictions from the job I was injured at, but workmans comp has been horrible to deal with. I can tell they are putting pressure on the doctors to release my restrictions, even though I can only lift 20lbs without severe pain.
