When I was in a car accident a year ago, the emergency room physician found that I had previously fractured my back at some point earlier in my life, and, that for whatever reason the bone never repaired itself. I have been suffering from ongoing chronic back pain since the accident, and have been going to physical therapy with no real relief from the pain. I know that physical therapy is great for muscle and joint issues, but what can I do about this old fracture that is causing me pain? Also, I should add, that when I went to physical therapy they found I had scoliosis from all the back issues that have occurred. My doctor is done prescribing pain medication for this *issue* as he called it. Should I get a second opinion?? Is a pseudarthrosis even something to be concerned about?
