When this patient came to us for help, her pain level was at a 10! This is on a scale of 0 to 10, so she was at the highest pain level possible. She had been suffering with back pain and sciatica for over 9 years by this point, and had seen a neurosurgeon and was given 4 cortisone injections, along with hydrocodone, norco, and NSAIDs for the pain. But even after all of that, her pain level was still at a 10.
When she came in we tested her on the Oswestry Disability Index to measure her degree of pain. She scored a 56, which meant her pain was causing her to be severely disabled. When we looked at her MRI it was easy to see why; her back pain and sciatica were due to a bulging disc, degenerated disc, and stenosis, along with other issues.
We started her treatment right away and soon she started feeling improvement in her pain. After just 24 treatments she was released from our care. Her ODI was now down to a 12, which is considered Normal, and her pain level had dropped all the way down to just a 2!
With a pain level of 10, she would have been destined for surgery. But we were able to relieve her pain and save her from surgery! We can do the same for you!
