I understand so much and have been in a similar position and still am. Upper fractures of thoracic knee pain and a healing broken shoulder. Warm water therapy ie. aqua aerobics n a warm pool will help One needs to strengthen thenuscles surround the fractures to take the strain rather than the bone sturcture.
Warm water also makes one relax and at the classes one can meet new people who are proably worse off and all can complain together as we do.
If you do not have anything like this near you a holiday somewhere where you can find a heath spa or hotel where these classes would help. An osteopath has also helped me and deep breating exercises from the lower abdomen before I sleep and when I wake up has helped me relax to ease the p ain.
