i do not know if this is true. my main neuro was very concerned and honestly, which i appreciated, said he could no longer help me. after the nucleur full body test came back saying degeneration of shoulders hips knees.
i was hit by a car crossing street 8 months ago. i flew fifteen fit and landed only on my left part of rear end and high part of leg. no blood. i had no problems. until six weeks later broken tibula / fibula
after that it began
-hump left back
-drop right shoulder-
-right leg length - now two inches longer htan right
at this point it is still unknown what is going on. all i know is i have yet to find anyone to help me. stanford wouldn't see me under neurology because they said they didn't have a dept.
ortho's do not fit into a whole body category.
does anyone know of a place where one can go to have there entire body looked at. i am in oakland. but i don't care if it's across the planet. i have not started to get better. i have not stopped getting worse.
physiatrist has been mentioned. neuro doc supposed to send info to them. and a place called valley medical center.
From the information given I would say that you have suffered what is sometimes called a soft tissue injuries to the lumber spine. which can lead to lower back muscle tension,then the symptoms that you said would have come about.The MRI shows mild degenerative disc disease which could have been present before the accident. The accident though could aggravate and bring about more symptoms from this pre-existing problem.
I would agree that physical therapy, intensive acupuncture, and mobilization exercises can be helpful !
