severe lower back pain and severe right shoulder pai
Mu husband is 48 years old and has been in pain for years! A few years ago, he found out he had ruptured/heriated dics in his back.His PCP sent him to a Doctor at Strong Hospt. who told him to go to sports physical therapy (my husband climbs poles for a living installing cable). The physical therapy was a joke!!! The doctor then subscribed some Ibprofin and told him to basically live with it! The Doctors name was Dr. ORSINI @ Strong. My husband just went to his PCP today because his right shoulder is killing him (he had an injury years ago and now his right arm is 1 1/2 longer than the left. (He still has severe back pain). Today the doctor referred him to an orthopedic doctor (she thinks he has bursitis in hs shoulder) - he also had blood and x-rays done today . My husband called to make an appointment to see the specialist and the secretary asked him if it was work related? My husband said it might be due to the job of cable work he's be doing for 15+ years. She told him he had to go through Workman's Comp.....WHAT???!!! We pay$1200.00 a month out of our pocket for MVP health insurance and we want service!!!! For my husband to go through workmans comp.,he would most definetly lose his job and he really doesn't know if his pain is because of work. Is there a doctor out there who can REALLY help him????????
