Peter Jacobsen's Testimonial

My story

I’m a professional golfer, so I’m often traveling. I’m also a husband, dad and grandfather. My back pain started slowly. It was just a twinge here and there in the beginning. Over time, though, it escalated so that I was in pain most days. I tried everything to find relief from my pain. I saw a rehabilitation specialist; I stretched and took over-the-counter medications. Nothing offered lasting relief. And when you have back pain like I did — the type that makes it difficult to do almost anything, it’s the little things you miss the most. All I wanted to do was sleep without waking up in pain. Or sit in a chair without my feet going numb. Most of all, I felt like I was missing out on time with my family.

Why I chose Laser Spine Institute

I wanted to find relief from my chronic back pain without having to go through a lengthy recovery process. And Laser Spine Institute’s minimally invasive procedures and quick recovery time were appealing to me. I was a little skeptical at first because it sounded too good to be true, and that’s why I took a tour of the facility. If I hadn’t seen it for myself, I wouldn’t have believed it. There really is no place like Laser Spine Institute. I scheduled my surgery with Laser Spine Institute after visiting the facility. I woke up after my surgery and remember feeling that my pain was gone. It was such an amazing feeling. I felt so good after surgery that I even went out to dinner that evening.

My life today

I had surgery at Laser Spine Institute several years ago. And since then, my quality of life has significantly improved. Just a week after my minimally invasive procedure, I was participating in a golf tournament without pain. Not only was I able to get back my golf game, but I am also able to enjoy doing simple, everyday things again. I can walk to the mailbox, sleep comfortably and get in and out of chairs without pain. The best part is that I don’t feel like I’m missing out on family time anymore. I can golf with my son and swim with my grandsons without back pain.
