I was in a bad car accident two years ago. I've never fully recovered. I still have headaches, dizziness, and constant pain. X-rays were taken but didn't show anything. I've tried acupuncture and craniosacral therapy but nothing helps. What do you think I should do next?10 years 29 weeks ago1527
I was in a car accident (my fault) while out shopping with a friend. My friend tends to be a bit on the hysterical side normally.

Are these problems really just personality driven?10 years 8 weeks ago3015

I was one of the first people in our area to have a disc replacement for a herniated disc that was pressing on my spinal cord. That was five years ago. So far, so good.

I like to keep up on this technology, should I ever need another one. What's the latest?9 years 11 weeks ago3146

I work as an EMT on an ambulance service. My sister is a nurse in an emergency department. We both see patients involved in motor vehicle accidents who end up with a chronic neck problem from whiplash.

Does anyone really know?10 years 8 weeks ago2061
