One thing I found is that doctors aren't necessarily very helpful in recovering from these types of injuries, and may actually be almost useless beyond their ability to order x-rays and prescribe physical therapy. Have you worked with a good physical therapist? They tend to do a much more thorough assessment of strength, flexibility, posture, and joint movement than doctors will do, and can be of great assistance in targeting the correct strength training and mobility exercises.
