Default Finding the right back specialist

Hello, first let me say I hope this is the right section to post in.

I have 4 vertebral compression fractures due to seizures, and very recently decided to start focusing all of my efforts on and treating this as a more serious matter, rather than spreading my efforts all out over many other things at once. Especially since I've read, and wonder if my spinal injury could have caused or at least contributed to some of my mental health problems (which I can include if needed/requested).

When my first fracture occured I was told surgery was not an option. So as far as I know, physical therapy is the only route to take. Recently I've only been looking for and considering options nearby, (which are very limited) but since I feel I should take this matter more serious, I'm not very opposed anymore to having to travel a significant distance for the right treatment if needed.

So all this being said, I was just hoping to get any advice or information I can on finding the right/best source of treatment - whether you happen to personally know of a specific specialist or place, or just any advice or information to help my search in general. Thank you...

Hello Photonate: I see this is your first post here on PC. So... welcome to Psych Central.

I don't know as I would have any particular recommendations for you. There are many medical / surgical providers in the Twin Cities. But, of course, the provider everyone thinks of when it comes to the state of Minnesota is the Mayo Clinic.

The other thing I thought I would mention, though, is that Psych Central has a sister website: "NeuroTalk". If you don't get the information you're looking for here on PC, you might also consider taking a look at NeuroTalk as well. Here's a link to the NeuroTalk website:

NeuroTalk Support Groups

You referenced some mental health problems in your post as well. So I hope you find PC to be of benefit.

Thank you for the welcome and your response. I was not aware of neurotalk so I'll give it a visit.

I haven't done very much searching online lately which is why I'm seeking advice and information from others, but I'll try doing some in the twin cities area if that is a recommended place to look.
