severe back pain

A friend of mine has been involved in an accident almost 12 months ago. Since then, he has been suffering with back pains and muscle spasms. At first the doctors diagnosed a severe case of whiplash. It appears his spine took a slight curve from the impact of the MV accident. Now the doctors say his spine is putting pressure on his nerves which is causing him to lose his sight. Can anything be done about this? He has been to the physiotherapists and biokinetists and has spent a lot of money trying to make himself better. But he is still suffering continuously and somedays can' t even get out of bed.

Physiotherapy and Biokinetics do indeed play a valuable role in rehabilitation after MVAs . I would none the less advise an examination by a chiropractor. If you have any X/Rays available - take these along with you as they may still indicate the problematic region.
