Our Patients

I injured my back in a fall and have spent the past three years trying to make it better. I tried physical therapy first with only minor relief and a so-so exercise program. Then I tried epidural shots and a new physical therapist (a really good PT can make a huge difference). The shots and PT helped a lot, but they were not a permanent solution to the swelling in the disk for me. I cannot take anti-inflammatories on a regular basis because they make me ill, so eventually the swelling would come back. Recently, when the pressure on the sciatic nerve returned, I had PDD (Percutaneous Disc Decompression) done to help clean out the bulge in the disk. It is done as an out-patient procedure and was very similar to the epidural shots. The doctor goes in at the same place in my back and cleans the disk instead of performing an injection. I left the surgery center an hour or so later with just two small Band-aids and a huge reduction in the pain. I had one more epidural shot about a month after the procedure to help alleviate the last of the pain and swelling, and I feel great. The new Back Jacket that you wear for a few weeks to help keep your spine straight and remind you to be nice to your back is very easy to use and comes with hot/cold gel pads to fit into it as needed. I am continuing with a great physical therapist to strengthen the muscles in my back and stomach, but I feel better than I have in three years and have returned to work in just 6 weeks. Anonymous
