dear fellow sufferers , i want to see a chiropractor in jhons hopkins because this is the place i was referred to by the health mission of my countrys embassy , but when i looked up the web site my appointment is with orthopedic surgen while iam reluctant to have coccygectomy because the outcome from this procedure is only 10% success rate. iam not sure i can mention the name of the DR in the forum I want your advise with this regard
my diagnosis of coccydynia have already been confirmed by ortho in saudi arabia & london,uk, am not sure why the saudi health mission arranged appointment with ortho rather than directly to a chiropractor,
my concern is that upon reviewing the hosp web site , it lists ortho but no chiropractor
regarding symptoms: sitting is my enemy ,otherwise am okey
MRI , & digital x-rays have confirmed my coccyx is displaced anteriorly almost 90 degreesView Thread
