I fell in an ice storm at work on January 25, 2013. I sustained both lower and upper back pain from a direct hit and whiplash. I filed work comp and was accepted. I saw a neurologist who reviewed my ex rays and said that I was not a surgical candidate however did not return me back to work. He referred me to a soft tissue specialist who then put me in physical therapy. My MRI did indicate a bulging disc around the upper back/ neck area. The Physical Therapist said that my vertebra was twisted and was the reason my neck was locking up. She told me not to worry that she could get me back in good shape! I've been through two sessions and my neck still locks up and hurts! I'm back to work now with restrictions but I'm not healing and its been four months! The Dr. says she doesn't give a PPI?
