In brief: Treat your own back
If you are not getting the treatment you are looking for, i suggest evaluation from a mckenzie methhod trained therapist.
Robin mckenzie has a book, "treat your own back" which may be helpful after an evaluation with a specialist. You can find a mckenzie therapist in your area on the website: www.Mkenziemdt.Org also osteopathic manipulative treatment, acupuncture & energy healing could be helpful.
