A bit of a back story I'm 22, in '99 I was in a car accident and me and my family started going to the chiropractor for treatment (not to sure on the details as I was about 9 years old) but I had an x-ray done there and they had told me I had Spina Bifida Occulta. Ever since then, I had back problems/pain (as well as others but I will get to that later). There was no real follow-up on it but after I got pregnant with my 2nd child the pain has worsened. So I went to a specialist in '08 (don't remember what kind) and he took more x-rays because he stated the x-ray from '99 was to blurry for him to make a real observation. The results of that x-ray stated "there is an anomaly of the spine, but nothing to cause pain." So they started sending me to physical therapy. Up until a year ago, I was on SSI and so I had not worked, but after I got taken off, I started working. As I have been working the pain has been steadily getting worse, so I again went to my doctor asking for answers. They had done another x-ray and the results baffled me. "Mild Degenerative Wear and Tear". From what I understand is that this pretty much only happens in older (like a lot older) patients. My question is, What does this mean? Has anyone heard about this? What is the treatment? Do you think its a mistake?
I am also going to add that I have congenital hip displaysia, central precocious puberty, an extra bone in my ankles, and after starting work my knees, legs, and feet have also increased in pain along with my back. Any info is appreciated!
