Zak Gordon, 59
Zak had always been successfully treated by his chiropractic physician over many years for intermittent lower back pain. After severely herniating a disc in his lumbar spine he had significant leg and back pain that was worsening. His physicians confirmed his diagnosis on MRI and referred him for consideration of the spinal decompression procedure.
After completing his treatment his pain levels diminished greatly and he was able to resume full work and recreational activities.
“My primary care physician ordered an MRI and referred me to a back surgeon who then recommended immediate surgery. I wanted an alternative and my chiropractor referred me to Dr. Tunick. I waited until the pain was almost unbearable before I called and made an appointment.”
“I was unable to sit, drive for all but short trips, unable to hike, bike, kayak, and walk any distance without severe pain. Basically, lost all joy in life without repeating my daily mantra, “I complained I had no shoes until I met a man with no feet”. “I was the closest I’ve ever been to experiencing true despair.”
“I can now manage a dramatically reduced level of pain. I can sit with my family at dinner, can drive without excruciating sciatic pain. I can enjoy walks and basically have regained a happier perspective on life.”
“I have been treated with compassion, concern and ulitimately as a friend. My desire to help myself get better was more than met by their desire to help me help myself!”
“I have made certain adjustments in my daily life. I now stand at work. I start my day with 20 minutes of exercise and repeat at least twice daily. I do not sit when I can just as well stand. I’ve lost 15 pounds and intend to lose 15 more.”
Myra Heese, 61
Myra had a one year history of significant lower back pain. Her legs were going numb, her hip was sore, and she found it difficult to walk. She found she was unable to get out of a chair by herself. Unable to sit for any length of time, unable to lay on her side in bed or stand for any length of time, her life was literally taken away from her. Myra came to to us hoping she could find relief at last.
After her 4th spinal decompression treatment her pain levels began to diminish greatly and her functional capacity was greatly improved. At the end of her treatment program she was completely pain free and able to resume full work and recreational activities.
“After my spinal decompression treatment I feel like I have a new body, and now have more control of my life without pain. I am able to do things which I was unable to do before. Dr. Tunick was awesome; I would highly recommend Natural Pain Solutions to other patients who want to take back their lives.”
Helene Danskey, 54
Helene had a 3-4 month history of lower back pain that traveled into her left leg. An operating room nurse, she had injured herself at work and was only getting worse. She had back pain previously in 2004 and 2005 and yet again in 2006 when she was injured. The pain was sharp, burning and stabbing in her lower back and buttock, and it traveled all the way down her leg. She had numbness in her toes and noticed weakness.
Helene had to give up Tae Kwon Do, she couldn’t do her shopping and other activities she loved, she couldn’t even sit for 20 minutes. She had been treated with physical therapy, had taken analgesics and anti-inflammatory medications, and was on Oxycodone when she first came to us hoping she could find relief at last. Her MRI and physical examination showed a herniated disc at the L4-5 level. Helene began the spinal decompression program and today is completely pain free.
“I saw improvement every time I came. Little by little I realized the treatment was really going to work and it gave me tremendous hope that I was going to be all right. I am back at regular work doing what I love! The doctors were fun and caring, always answering my many questions with patience. I got my life back like they said I would!”
Bill Allred, 71
Bill had recently suffered a severe injury to his lower back and had unrelenting back and leg pain due to a large ruptured disc. He had an emergency MRI and his neurosurgeon was ready to operate. In fact, Bill had already checked into the hospital for surgery. His chiropractic physician had urged him to consider spinal decompression treatment with Dr. Tunick first. Fortunately for Bill, his EKG exam put his surgery on hold and he came to see Dr. Tunick. A decision he will never regret and one that truly let him “take back his life.”
“I needed a cane to get around. I couldn’t walk, stand, sit or bend over without major pain. I couldn’t drive a car without my right leg cramping and couldn’t sleep for periods exceeding an hour or two. I was unable to work at all. I feel virtually as good as new now. The back pain and sciatica are both completely gone and I have been able to resume living a normal life again. I’m working full time and feel great.”
” Dr. Tunick was absolutely wonderful. I really enjoyed my visits and miss seeing him! I can’t recommend him enough to other patients that have severe back pain and definitely don’t want surgery.”
Tricia Spurgeon, 42
Tricia, a busy mother of 3 children had been suffering with back pain from a herniated disc. Due to her pain she had restricted her activity level and wanted to find a way to get healthy and back to her normal activities. Tricia’s chiropractic physician referred her to Dr. Tunick for spinal decompression therapy.
“I had back pain on and off for more than 8 years, but this most recent flare up was severe. It was painful with sitting, standing, and my activity was restricted. Since my treatment with the spinal decompression therapy program, my pain levels are consistently down and I have been able to continually increase exercise. Hooray!”
“The doctors took very good care of me. I really appreciate the extra time and research they put in to discover multiple issues that caused my back problem. I am very happy to have the tools I need (exercise/stretching) to get healthy again. Thank you!”
