I need to find a good back doc. Any suggestions in the South East Mi area.
i liked chelsea back and pain care and the therapy - especially if you are leaning towards non - invasive action . chiropracters have their place

my future ex wife had a basic back doc named dr handlesman.i wanna say he was associatted with st joe in ypsi.she went through three back surgiries.he wasnt her surgeon but hes a back doc.ill call her tomorrow and find out contact info and pm you.

sometimes a day or two on the couch with a few muscle relaxers is the ticket.

I would like to know what is going on with me. I get a sharp pain in the lower part of my back. It has been going on ever since I wrecked my quad at the sand dunes. When the accident happened back in 04. I went to the hospital and they x-rayed my back and seen nothing damaged.

But I get a sharp pain that almost puts me on my butt it hurts so much. But it only happens when i twist or something. Usually if I have been on my feet for long periods of time is when it is the worse. But lately it has been happening after sitting for periods of time too.

That is great but that sounds like my ortho doc. manage the pain but not fix the problem.

That is why I have a big bump on the side of my knee again. So I know I will be having another knee surgery to remove built up fluid. Because no one wants to find the cause of the problem.

I am truely thinking I have a pinched nerve in my lower back or some nerve damage in the lower part of my back. I got thrown 20 ft from my quad was knocked out and came too on my own before the DNR got to the crash site. Made it back to my truck on my quad slowly and then my buddies helped load my quad. My one buddy drove me to the er where they gave me some demeral and x-rays. Then they gave me percocet and flexirel for the pain and muscle tightness.

Now 4 years later I am getting a sharp pain in the lower part of my back that puts me dang near on my butt when it hits me.

from what i know as being an obserevor.you are in for alot of testing.mri's,dye injections,therapy.god forbid your have to have surgery.i was there for three procedures on my wife.
first she had two chrushed discs.had a fusion done.everything was good.
then she was rearended,a repair surgery was made.didnt work.
ended up they had to take out everything that was done three years ago and start over.poor woman was on the table for 17 hours.laid up for another year.

i hope you dont have to be cut on.

Long periods of time spent hunched over a keyboard will have that effect on a person with a bad back. Spending more time in the units might help out with that, and heck, who knows...maybe even a promotion. ;)

Knowing your a big guy, part of the problem is likely that you need to lose some weight, which is one of the most difficult procedures to undertake EVER! :)
