In brief: You need spine eval

You need a formal neck and low back evaluation, including mri's by a spine specialist, particularly given the complexity of insurance issues long term. A diagnosis is important for medical and insurance reasons.

In brief: MRI

Assuming that you have had mri.
If you haven't you should consider pushing for one. If it was normal, nerves may have been stretched. If that was the case it may take 3-6 months to get better.
