Customer Question

I am asking for advice on behalf of my son 61/2 years ago he sustained some kind of injury to his neck or upper back ,he has constant pain in his neck and sternum and is now finding difficulty standing upright .He has had numerous investigations but has been told they can find nothing wrong other than a hiatus hernia. He has looked on line for his symptoms and he thinks they point to a herniated disc in his spine but doctors have been dismissive of this suggestion and my son is becoming very depressed.Please can someone help?
