Posts in Disc Herniation

“I had really severe lower back pain from a herniated disc. It was actually so bad that I couldn’t get up in the morning or tie my shoes. During the day it would get a little better, but it was really bad in the morning. On a scale from 1 to 10, my pain was probably about an 8.

Dr. James did a through analysis and then put me on the decompression machine. After a week, I already noticed really big improvements. The pain was getting less and less. Now, it’s been over a year, and I haven’t had any pain whatsoever.

I’m very active - I work out a lot, I do yoga, I run and hike and go to the gym a lot - and I have not had any problems whatsoever since I first came in a year and a half ago.

This was, bay far, the best investment I did for myself. Thank you Dr. Jeffrey James!”

“I was treated for herniated disc in the L5 - S1 area. It was excruciating pain.

I have been doing treatment for about 3 to 4 months now, and I can say I am 99% better than when I walked into the office.

Dr. James has a beautiful facility. The Integrated Physicians team is great - everyone treats me great with kindness and they took a lot of care with my concerns.

I was very surprised on how much better I am doing with my physical abilities. I really don’t have anything bad to say, I am very impressed.”

“I came to Dr. James with a lot of pain in my lower back. Through the course of all the treatments, getting on the decompression machine, keeping up with my icing - it has helped my pain tremendously - I have gained a lot more mobility and I’m sleeping better. I would definitely recommend this office; top of the line staff! I received good care, and if you are experiencing back pain, this is the place to come.”

“I came in as a patient who couldn’t even stand up. I had to do my entire consultation lying down on the examination table. Since starting treatment with Dr. James, my chronic, debilitating pain has gone away, and now I am able to walk and do most of my normal activities.

I came in for about three months, twice a week, and found that after each visit, I was getting better. Soon, I was able to stretch, get on the treadmill, and lead a pretty normal life.

The treatment here is excellent. In the beginning, I had a little trouble with scheduling, but the staff was warm, gracious, and accommodating. I am really glad I came to Integrated Physicians!”

“I heard about Dr James through the radio and called. I was in severe pain from a L5 - S1 7mm disc herniation. If you’re having any discomfort, I strongly suggest you give him a call. My low back pain was a 10 on the pain scale. I used to need a cane, and now my cane is in the trunk of my car. I truly appreciated his professionalism and that of the staff.”

“I experienced a back injury last September. I really never had any back problems before. I leaned over awkwardly while helping my daughter, and I herniated L5 and S1 (that was my diagnosis). It was actually so bad I wasn’t able to walk that night. My husband had to carry me to bed and we actually had to call the paramedics to carry me out of my house.

I went for traditional treatment at first.. I went to my physical therapy, which worked, up to a point. But then, it reached a point where it was actually making it worse. I was having horrible muscle spasms and was taking Vicodin everyday. I couldn’t even get out of bed without my Vicodin and 600 milligrams of Ibuprofen. Then, I heard about Doctor James on the radio.

The first thing that really impressed me was the staff. Everyone was so helpful, kind, and supportive. It was just an environment where you feel like they are very in tune with you. I had an exam that was very thorough, almost an hour long.

It’s been approximately three months, and today is my last day of treatment. When I first came in, I would rate my pain at about ninety percent (90%). This morning, I rated it at, maybe, one-tenth of a percent (0.1%).

My life is just so much better - three months ago, I couldn’t hold my daughter in my lap or play catch with my boys, and now I have returned to most of my normal activities.

I just give the highest recommendation to Dr. James and his staff, and if you need help with your back and just getting your life back, this is the place where you can get some help.”

“I suffered from a herniated disc and was told by my doctor that I was going to need surgery. I tried several treatments including acupuncture, but none of them seemed to work.

So one day, I heard Dr. James talk about about spinal decompression on the radio, and I came into the office. I think, on a scale of 1 - 10, my pain was about an 8. After three months of treatment, I would say my pain has reduced to a 3. The treatment has been great for me, my atrophy and shoulder pain has really, really decreased.

The staff has been great to me; I really appreciate everything they have done. It is a godsend that I heard about this treatment on the radio. I could not have spent my money in a better way. I just want to say again that it works, it really works.”

“I came into the office barely able to walk due to disc issues in my back. I struggled with bathing myself because I could not stand on my own. The exercises were interesting and strange but they were effective. After a few treatments I felt so much improvement, and was able to walk the length of a football field with no pain! I am so much happier and am so thankful to have found Dr. James.”
