Spinal compression fracture
I was injured on Oct 6, 2010. After 4 trip to the ER and also seeing my family doctor, an X-ray of lower-back, CT scan of lower back, MRI of lower-back, all scan showed nothing wrong, the diagnosis was a lower back injury. The symptoms were severe burning on the thoracic spine area, muscle tightening and severe pain of entire back, leg weakness and cold and hot sensations. Not until Feb 18, 2011 when an X-ray of the thoracic spine was done, that an (old) spinal compression fracture of the T-10 vertebrae was found. I have been receiving Physio therapy since November, As well as taking anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxants and t-3s. The pain has not left, and the weakness and numbness is still happening in my legs. Was this a normal standard of procedure used by Canadian hospitals or should they have done something other and been able to determine the fracture earlier? What is my best method of solving my illness now? Are there procedures to cure my problem?
