Re: Chronic back pain from L1 compression fracture
Dear liag, I had to see 2 spine specialist at the beginning of my injury after having a neurologist while being treated at the hospital, a spine orthopedic surgeon & then a spine neurosurgeon worked together to do the first surgery. I was 26, i had 2 lumbar surgs, got married, had my first child, then my second child all before i was 30, well i was 30. Fast forward 30 years, i had to see 3 spine neurosurgeons to try to get one of them to try to do something surgical to help chronic pain. But my point is sometimes it is necessary to get several opinions especially if we are not able to function & may have to see different specialists like spine neuro, ortho, pain mgmt to get varying or even the same opinion because you are so young what has been tried so far as in physical therapy, epidural steroid injections, any MRI's or EMG's, etc?
