There are a lot of things you take for granted when you’re healthy — things such as getting in and out of a car easily and participating in family activities. When my back began to hurt, these were the things that I missed the most. I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis, and I had bulging and herniated discs. My pain was excruciating.
I work in sales, and my job requires a lot of travelling. My back pain made getting in and out of the car almost intolerable — something that was a frequent necessity for my job. There were times that my back pain was so bad that I could not go to work. And there were other times that my boss sent me home because he could see the intense pain in my face. Not only was my pain affecting my work, it was also impacting my family life. I wasn’t able to go on family outings like I normally would. My back pain was affecting my entire life.
Why I chose Laser Spine Institute
My conditions were steadily getting worse and so was my back pain. I didn’t know what else to do because I had tried everything to help relieve the pain. When I saw Laser Spine Institute’s commercial, I thought, “What do I have to lose?” From the minute I walked into Laser Spine Institute, I was astounded by the care I received. I have never encountered anything like what I did at Laser Spine Institute at another medical facility. You could tell immediately that everyone loved their jobs, and that they genuinely cared about the patient.
My life today
I went into surgery with so much pain that I didn’t have high expectations for pain relief. When I woke up from surgery, though, I felt like a totally different person. I stood up, and I was pain free. I wanted to run because I felt so good. That day was one of the happiest days of my life. I lived with chronic back pain for years, and I finally found the solution to my pain: Laser Spine Institute.
