Hi, ShellieOchs--we are so sorry to read about the amount of pain you're dealing with! It is extremely frustrating when it feels like your medical team isn't hearing you or taking your pain seriously. Have you checked out our doctor finder tool? https://www.spineuniverse.com/locate/spe... It might be time to get a second opinion, and you can use the tool to look up spine specialists in your area.

We wish you the best of luck in physical therapy--it has helped countless people with back pain, and we hope it has positive results for you, too. Please keep us posted on your progress!
