Every couple months or so my lower back would go out, I would be in so much pain that I just laid on the floor for three days or so doing nothing. It would slowly get better with use of some medication ... until the next time it would go out, just a couple of months later. It has been one year since I have finished my treatment at Wellspring, and I wanted to let everyone know that my back hasn't gone out since! Every time it starts hurting, I apply the techniques that therapists taught me and my pain goes away! I wish I would have come to Wellspring to stop the pain cycle long before I did!
Five years ago I had a spinal fusion and in April of this year my back really began to hurt. I did not want to just follow down the path of having spinal epidurals which only eased the pain for a day or two. Since I have been a patient there, the changes have been dramatic. I am, for the most part, pain-free. Now, however, I can apply what I've learned at Wellspring Health Center to get back to better faster.
My lower back and shoulder pain prevented me from sleeping well. As a result, I was constantly tired and crabby. I stopped doing 90% of my activities. I became sedentary and weak. I tried many different avenues before coming here. Wellspring Health Center took the most comprehensive look at what was going on as compared to anyone else I saw. The integrative approach is wonderful-like jigsaw pieces being put together and then the puzzle is done and you are so much better.
