Hi all, need some input here.I have a new client who injured her back in summer 02, had a discectomy in fall of 03 (L4, L5, S1). Still had intense pain so dr recommended fusion in fall 04. Fused L4, L5, S1 and put in rods and pins. Pain is worse than ever and now her left leg constantly hurts. Basically she was told that they can do nohting more for her and referred her to pain management. She takes Percoset every 5 hours for pain and wears a Lidoderm patch on her sacrum 12 hours on, 12 hours off. She came to me via gift certificates as a last resort. I've worked on her twice and she would like to continue, if only to reduce some of the stress she's under (she's unsure whether or not massage can help). But, money is a huge issue since she's not able to work. She thought workman's comp would cover it but her dr won't recommend massage, though he doesn't oppose it.My issue now is she would like me to write a letter to her dr stating benefits of massage as they directly relate to her, hoping he may decide massage could help her. I'm at a loss as to what to include in this letter. I've never done this before and, while I have some experience working with lumbar issue, I'm definately no expert.Any suggestions?
