Back ache, neck pain, was choked for a while, in severe pain. What can help?

I am located in Kankakee, IL. I am having extremly bad back pains, and neck pains. I went to the ER when I was hurting so bad I could barely walk, then was put on pain meds, and sent to a pain specialist. Dr. Hasan. I went back to work about a week later, after seeing Hasan and getting ready for PT. I was injured at work, I work with mentally handicaped individuals, and was attacked by one. He had me in a very strong choke hold, was on my back with his knees, and obviously made my pain worse. Hasan said he couldnt treat me due to my injury at work, and now I am in a lot of pain, and I am about to go back to the ER, but I need a dr who is going to be there consistently, and help me. This is torture, and I am stuck.

Hello, Sure this seems to be an injury which has produced this Pain. It does need an evaluation fro sure. A few queries would be helpful, any back pain in the past ? any associated medical problems like diabetes, hypertension, urinary infections, fever??

Yes to begin with pain killers with local ice compress / hot water fomentation would be helpful, and then you will need physiotherapy. Some moderation of work and physical activity will be required till u r pain free.
to complement this a pain killer would be helpful.

share some more information, as above, and then we can take it further.
