A Wonderful Story

I would like to take the time to say how grateful I am for being referred to the Spine Clinic (Maccio PT). I feel it has changed my life for the better. In 2004 I had surgery for a herniated disk in my neck, and have had neck pain on and off since. In the Fall of 2011 it started to get real bad again and I started physical therapy which only made the pain worse, therefore I stopped going. In December 2011 I was in a severe car accident and broke the humorous in my arm and I was laid up for a year after having surgery to put a rod in my arm. My neck started hurting again and my Dr. wanted me to try physical therapy which once again only made the pain worse. In January I was put on a new medication which helped for a little while but then the pain returned. A new Dr. wanted to do injections and possibly another surgery. I was told by a friend that the McKenzie Spine Clinic might be able to help. So I talked to my Dr. and he gave me a referral before going the drastic route of the injections or surgery. After going to the Spine Clinic, I am amazed at what you have done for me. I have been able to cut my medication from 4 times a day to once a day. I am now 98% pain free. I can go back to daily activities that I had to limit for two years including: gardening, lawn work, housework, turning my head when driving... because the pain was unbearable while performing them. You have taught me how to turn the pain off (when it starts) by doing simple exercises when I need it. I am a believer and so grateful to have less pain in my life. Thank you for giving me my life back. Sincerely, G. Garcia
