“After a few weeks of treatment, I had NO PAIN! I am back to my old self and able to do what I want. I can do all kinds of other little things that I used to take for granted,” says Callie, recent patient of The Back Pain Institute.
She woke up with excruciating pain in her lower back. “I’m calling in sick today,” she said to herself. Since no one could cover for her, she got up and got ready for the day. At work someone asked her if she could pass them a pen. “Get it yourself,” she snapped back. It’s hard to be nice when you’re in pain. As a matter of fact, many individuals suffering from back pain, understandably, can be downright grouchy due to the nagging discomfort back pain can cause. This was the case for Callie Yates, a 35-year-old hair stylist and recent patient of the Back Pain Institute.
“I’d been suffering with lower back and right hip and heel pain for two years,” says Callie. “I tried massage therapy, chiropractic treatment and acupuncture – all of the non-invasive options I could find. I really didn’t want to have surgery. Then I heard about the SpineTREX treatment at the Back Pain Institute. I scheduled a free consultation and met with one of their doctors. I was really impressed. He seemed to understand what I was going through. I did some testing to find out the cause of my pain a protruding disc at L5-S1.”
The SpineTREX treatment uses a special table and harness that utilizes decompression therapy — not surgery — to heal herniated disks, sciatica, degenerative disc disease and posterior facet syndrome. This is good news for the millions of individuals who want to avoid back surgery and start living life again without back pain. “After a few weeks of treatment,” says Callie, “I had NO PAIN! I could do almost all of my daily routines that I used to do before the pain overtook my life. I am no longer grouchy because of the pain. I am back to my old self and able to do what I want. I can put my shoes and socks on without pain, take a nice hot bath after working on my feet all day and all kinds of other little things that I used to take for granted.”
