Backbone Problem ~?

Hello All i need advice for my DAD !

Well my dad was slipped in bath and he fell down and since that day he is feeling much pain on his back, we have taken xrays etc and Doctors say that 3rd last joint of backbone is effected a little bit so it will take bit time to recover and its been 1 year now he still feel so much pain.

He has done excercises and taken many other prescriptions but no result , So now situation if he is fine he feel strong but when there is pain then he suffer pain for 2 days atleast.

Please suggest me the good solution or a good Arthopedic to resolve this problem.

Is there any one you know been suffered some thing like please help me out.

Thanks

Hi.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by third last joint....but no matter what you need to get your father in to see a good spine doctor or an orthopedic surgeon. Not a chiropracter. He needs to see a docotr that specilizes in the back. There is something wrong and a general practitioner isn't going to get it taken care of.

good luck and keep us posted.

No Chiropractor But Possibly A Neurosurgeon Would Be The Best Bet

Re: Backbone Problem ~?

i do think just considering what was found upon x ray,obtaining an MRI of that area would really give you much more in depth info of the extent of that injury.x rays merely scratch the very surface not in depth down to the nerve and spinal cord level.it does sound from what you are describing that there is alot more in depth damage going on that just is not going to show up on any x ray.it would most likely show upon MRI tho.his primary care doc can refer him for that test.after that is done,seeing an orthosurgeon would really be a great idea,just to see how significant his injury actually is and whether or not it can be treated.an MRI should have been done as soon as the x ray revealed actual damage.they kind of dropped the ball on that one.but you can get it done now.your dad should not have to suffer thru all this pain without actually knowing why.i wish him luck and hope this is not too severe.please keep us posted on what you find out,K?
