MOTHER'S SPINAL CORD
MY MOTHER WAS HIT BY A CAR A YEAR AGO. SHE IS 70 YEARS OF AGE AND WE WERE TOLD BY DOCTORS THAT THEY CANNOT OPERATE HER BECAUSE OF HER AGE. EVERYTIME WHEN HER BACK ACHES, THEY GIVE HER PANADO AND A RUBBING STUFF. IS THERE ANYTHING THAT I CAN GET HER TO EASE THE PAIN IN HER BACK?

Ntso, they should at least give her an anti-inflammatory drug like Arthrotec®, Brufen®, Celebrex®, etc. (depending on what other problems she has). Maybe the best would be to take her to another doctor for a second opinion. Good luck.
