Re: Neurologist or Orthopedic ???
has anyone thought to actually send you for an MRI yet of your c spine? given your progressing symptoms and the findings upon just the plain x ray, and what you have been thru with the MVA there could be alot more going within the spinal canal or at the nerve root level that simply would not show upon plain x ray. i would try and get this done first,before anything else and that includes going back to that chiro for any adjustments until AFTER you know for certain just what it is you are dealing with inside the spine. some adjustments made by chiros can actually cause many more problems when what is going on inside is simply not known. there are just situations that you can have going on with your c spine that could be a very big deal with even slight movement of the vertebrae. i would definetly stay away from the chiro or do anymore PT til that MRI tells whats going on. it can just be avery risky thing when all you have had is only x ray that does show something significant that is actually out of place. that also affects the placement of the inner spine structures too. hopefully it is not a huge issue up there,but you do really need that MRI at this point just to know what IS going on in there. the MRI results would kind of dictate your next step,which would probably be seeing a good neurosurgeon for a consult/eval of your situation. please keep me posted,Marcia
