My storyAfter a three-decade career as a homebuilder and inspector, I was looking forward to a relaxing retirement. What I got instead was something I never bargained for — debilitating back pain. All that lifting, climbing and twisting finally caught up with me and took a major toll on my body. I tried everything I could to find relief, but acupuncture and physical therapy didn’t work. Sometimes the pain was so unbearable I couldn’t even sleep. That’s when I turned to pain medicine. But who wants to be on opioids for a long period of time? One day while I was watching television, the Laser Spine Institute commercial came on, and I thought, “What do I have to lose?” And other than marrying my wife and having our children, making that call was the best decision I ever made.
Why I chose Laser Spine InstituteI knew I was only masking the pain not fixing it. I was relying on pain pills to survive and to be able to do my job until I could retire. And that’s just not a way to live. After seeing the Laser Spine Institute commercial, I knew I had to try something. My experience there was incredible. The facility was state of the art. The people were as nice as they could possibly be. And after my surgery, as we were driving home, the phone rang. It was the surgeon who performed my procedure. Not an assistant but the person who did my operation. And that floored me. He asked how I was feeling. Who does that? Laser Spine Institute does.
My life todayI was going to wait a few more years to retire, but now that I have my life back, why would I? My back’s as good as new. I wake up every morning and I am blessed. The whole thing has just been an absolute miracle. Laser Spine Institute took all the pain away. And I can now enjoy my golden years with my wife, who is my best buddy. We laugh every day. It just seems too good to be true. Don’t suffer like I did for all those years. Call Laser Spine Institute. I’m grateful I did because I can finally tie my own shoes, play golf again and do something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time — lift my wife in my arms.
