I suffered a broken spine in 2008 after a car crash and have been having pain in my neck, back, arms and hips ever since - today I have a really trobbing pain in my arm. Last time I went to the doctor he said it was inflamation of my muscles - I haven't had a scan or xray since my accident, nor have I ever recieve pysio.
If your Dr has recommended PT, then you should pursue that. Also if your pain in continuing you may need to get an mri (lumbar and cervical) which will show if there is anything going on the disc level and will also show soft tissue injury. Definitely look into this further with your PCP.
