I'm not sure what kind of injury you have, but I have severe osteoporosis and also had a car accident 1 1/2 years ago. I also have 2 collapsed disks. I didn't break anything in the accident, but had constant pain in my back between my shoulder blades. I opted for acupuncture for the pain. I feel it really helped. I also had physical therapy exercises for strengthening my back which I do every day. It took one year and 2 months before the pain actually subsided, and I rest my back often lying flat on my back, not in a recliner. I also bought a new mattress, the back supporter by Spring Air and a neck pillow. Acupuncture feels good and relaxes you. It's good therapy. Hope this helps.
