six months i was crossing the street (cross walk as well...wow) and i was hit by a car.

the driver was going pretty fast and from what my friend said i flew close to twenty feet.

i landed completly on my rear. i had an enormous bruise on upper left leg and rear.

i have found a neck / spine guy to diagnose my neck C5-C6 thing

but i have a limp. an obvious limp.

my right hip is an inch higher than my left
but right leg is longer than the left

the left side of back is puffed out - much bigger
the right side of back is flat

the right side of body has atrophied a great deal. to a point where it feels like my should will slip out of the socket. had surgery for that over 20 years ago and has never been an issue since. but since my arm has become so weak

at this point i have not found one doctor who shows any interest.

i happen to have a mile case of scioulis. i didn't know that this would keep doctors from taking me seriously.

also was an athlete. ranked very high junior tennis. so i can't help but know my body.

i don't know what to do. i don't know what doctor to look for

as of now my back / spine guy has me doing physical therapy. but it is futile. they don't know what is wrong.

i really need help. i can't really do anything. i worked at a bar just checking ideas and this became utterly impossible.

thank you very much one and all

hope everyone is at least okay

  • no. i hopefully will. but at this point i would really like to get a doctor who specializes in this area then be able to make the decision depending on what is said.for a reason that might not sound logical i don't feel comfortable going to a chirophracter till i really know what is going on. hope that makes sense. though at some point if this continues i might have to change my mind. also there are the osteophatic doc's.i do really appreciate you responding.
