I have reached the end of my epidurals, facet blocks, etc. Chiropractors and physical therapy were of little use, although I did gain strength from physical therapy.
MY PM doctor referred me to a massage therapist that he works with. I went to see him and brought my MRI and xray results last week. The massage therapist seems to know what he's doing. He claims that my thoracic pain is coming down from my C4-C5 neck joint. My rhomboids are virtually locked up in spasm.
So I'll have to see how it goes. I had my 3rd massage today and it feels somewhat better, as did the last 2 treatments, but for a little while.
Diagnosis: Thoracic facet syndrome & cervical and thoracic radiculopathy from car accident trauma.
