Osteopath: Mid-twenties female with chronic (4 mo) back pain needs evaluation & osteopath good place to start. Mri might be in order. Chronic soft tissue injuries (tendon, muscle, fascia, & ligament) not discovered by imaging & physical exam paramount. Ligament disorder of joint hypermobility syndrome to be considered in young female. Unfortunately, young adults oft unfairly stigmatized as "drug seeking".
