So I hurt my back (USPS). I have called every doctor and chiropractor they have listed on the OWCP web site in my area and none actually take the federal worker's comp. Everyone actually hangs up on me after I ask and they say no.

I filed a claim, not because I want to be found disabled or miss a bunch of work or anything like that. I want to go to a real doctor that won't just throw pills at me. I can't take them when I am working and if I don't take them, my back swells and becomes stiff and painful after a few hours. I only did it because my primary care doctor refused to see me because I said the injury happened at work. I have been to the ER and they gave me prescriptions. I need physical therapy or a chiropractor or something that will help me long-term.

What to do?
