I have had back pain since May 06. I was treated by chiropractor for 4 months along with massage. Both only offered temporary relief. I then went to the doctor and he discovered I had no reflex in my right ankle. He took x-rays of my back which came back normal. He set up a MRI for me which will occur in Jan. For the past month I have been going to physiotherapy. He has done acupuncture and put me on the traction machine. He told me today that since there has been no improvement with anything he has tried I was wasting my time coming. I have tried to search the internet but haven't had much luck. I still do not have any reflex in my right ankle and now it is numb and so is the side of my right leg in the calf muscle. I am frustrated and would like some help.
