My back pain didn’t appear over night because of a traumatic incident. Instead, mine slowly developed. And when it got to the point that I was in pain almost daily, I saw a doctor and was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease. I tried everything the doctor recommended to help my pain, and while I may have found some temporary relief at times the pain always came back. My back pain became so bad that it started affecting every facet of my life. I couldn’t do laundry or dishes. I couldn’t even bathe my own son because it was too painful to bend. I remember that there were times that I would literally crawl around the house because the pain was so bad, and I couldn’t pull myself up. I just didn’t know what to do anymore.
Why I chose Laser Spine Institute
My doctor suggested that the best thing to do would be to have open back surgery. I knew I didn’t want that type of surgery, and it was not something my husband and I could afford at the time. My husband later found Laser Spine Institute, and called to learn more. We decided Laser Spine Institute was the best place to find pain relief. From the moment we walked in, everyone was very friendly. They knew I was coming and made sure I had all the information I needed.
My life today
I felt so much better when I woke up from surgery. I’ll never forget what it felt like to not be in pain and for the numbness in my legs to be gone. It almost felt like it was too good to be true. And now, I’m still feeling great. It’s amazing to get out bed without shooting pain. My quality of life has improved so much since my surgery at Laser Spine Institute. I can do anything I want now. Most importantly, I can lift and hold my 3-year-old son without pain. I’m not afraid to sit on the floor and play with him. Laser Spine Institute gave me back my life.
