Chief Complaint: Back pain / stress fracture L5

I have had problems with my back for a long time. I tried all the standard treatments: pain pills, steroid injections and physical therapy. Everything was just such a short temporary fix. In the meantime, my back continued to deteriorate getting worse and worse. My diagnosis from the specialist that would perform the surgery is that I have osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, spinal stenosis and scoliosis. Rather than jumping into surgery, which he said really was the last resort but he was not very encouraging that surgery would be the answer for me either, we decided to try Prescribing Life. We are so thankful that we made that descision. I am almost pain free 100% of the time. Thank you Prescribing Life!

After the first treatment the range of motion for my shoulder increased dramatically, almost back to 100% and the pain started to diminish immediately.

Chief Complaint: Shoulder / torn labrum / possible surgery required

I had back surgery about 15 years ago. I have been living in pain for the last 12 years. If you were to measure my pain on a scale from 1 to 10, mine would have been at a 20. A friend of mine who was successfully treated by Prescribing Life told me that I should go see them and that they could help me. I thought, well I've heard that story before but I am living in pain so what have I got to lose? After my first treatment my pain went down to a 3. I could walk from my car to the stadium without any pain. It is amazing to me what they have done for my back pain. I can do things that I haven't been able to do in 15 years. I came in with a negative attitude and walked out with a plus plus positive attitude.

I was having problems with my elbow, which in the past had three surgeries. As a baseball instructor, I have to throw every day. Prescribing Life helped me to be able to throw without any pain. This treatment could be an option to surgery and if so, then I highly recommend it.

Chief Complaint: Tendinitis of the elbow / Post Surgery Pain

I was suffering from severe back pain due to 22 years of playing rugby. I had a game scheduled in England and wasn't sure I could play in the game let alone handle the pain during the flight over. A fellow rugby player and friend told me about Prescribing Life. So I gave them a try and I am so glad that I did. I had no pain during the flight. I was able to play my game in England. Had a great time. Thank you Prescribing Life!

Chief Complaint: Severe back pain

I was diagnosed with elbow tedinitis. As a coach, phisical activigy is part of my daily job description. This reoccuring pain was causing problems such as throwing batting pracitce. I tried many treatments such as icing, stretching, ultrasound, electric stimulation and resting. After a long season and going into the summer I was still dealing with the pain. I would say on a scale from 1 to 10 it was a 7 or an 8 on a daily basis. After dealing with this for about 3 months a friend of mine told me about Prescribing Life. I was amazed. 24 hours after my treatment my grip strength returned. Swelling was almost all gone. Within a week I felt like I was back to normal. I want to thank Prescribing Life for what they did for me.

Chief Complaint: Tendinitis of the elbow / possible surgery required

I had back and neck pain since an auto accident that I was in in 1963. My back and neck pain was constant, typically between an 8 and 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. I've seen chiropractors throughout the years and never got any satisfying pain releif. After my first session with Prescribing Life my pain immediately went down to almost a zero. After ten sessions I am pain free. Prescribing Life is wonderful. So happy that I found them and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is living in pain.

- Before Prescribing Life -

1. What was your diagnosis?

I have a unique anatomy where I have an extra disc with an extra ear at the lower lumbar level. After a previous laminectomy in 2012, the discs above began to fall forward and bulge. I had severe sciatic pain to the point where daily function was very difficult. I couldn’t walk well, couldn’t stand for any amount of time, and had difficulty sleeping at night.

2. What did you use to manage the pain?

I began by seeing a chiropractor and after a few acupuncture treatments he decided that this was not going to be effective. From there I saw my regular physician and tried to manage the pain with medication and physical therapy with minimal results. At this point I was referred to a neurosurgeon and we spoke of having to have a spinal fusion to stop the degeneration at that point. After doing some research, I decided to wait it out and find other methods of controlling the issue.

3. From 0-10, how was your level of pain and what percentage of the day did you experience pain?

First, I have to state that I have an extremely high pain tolerance. At the worst part of this journey, my pain level was steady at a 10 or more for the majority of the day. I was in constant pain and found myself getting depressed. I cried a lot. I couldn’t exercise, I could barely walk. Any little jolt or jump would send shooting nerve pain down my hip and leg. There was not one day that went by where I was pain free.

- During Prescribing Life Treatment -

Describe your experience during your treament with Prescribing Life?

I was referred to Prescribing Life by a friend of mine. I will admit that I was a little doubtful about whether or not this would work, but I was desperate to avoid a fusion, so I went into it prepared to see it through. The treatment itself wasn’t bad at all. There were a few visits where my body seemed to be hypersensitive to the injections and I would become emotional. It was very interesting; however, to see how the injections would “move” the pain further down the hip and leg. Another interesting thing was that the injections actually caused some of my scars from previous injuries and surgeries to fade and disappear.

- After Prescribing Life Treatment -

Describe your experience since you have completed your treament with Prescribing Life?

I feel great most of the time. I don’t kid myself – I am 47 and there will minor creaks and pains; however, I am mobile. Most days I have very minimal pain. I am able to work out again and can walk and stand without little pain at all. I am sleeping well at night since there isn’t any pain to try to get comfortable around. Most days I have a 0 level of pain for nearly 100% of the day. At the worst, maybe a 1-2 for less than 10% of the day (and I attribute that to aging). I feel like life is much better than it was a year ago. I feel as though I have put off (hopefully definitely) any further back surgeries. My mood has improved greatly and I feel wonderful.
