I was in a car accident 5 years ago and really screwed up my back-- did something to the 4th and 5th vertebrae in my lower back and I can't sit for long amounts of time in a car, class, or airplane. I've been thru some physical therapy and massage therapy, but that stopped about 4 years ago. However, recently (within the past year or so) I have been running into the problem where I am now losing feeling in the lower left area of my back, especially when I cross my legs (for example, during a class). I don't think that's a good sign.
So, I was wondering... does anyone here know if the UW Sports Medicine Clinic deals with back pain? Have you had any experience there? Does anyone know of a good, licensed acupuncturist? Or know of a good massage therapist (who's not terribly expensive)?
