“ROCK Institute has changed my life! After having been under the care of pain specialists for over eight years, I finally found my way to ROCK Institute.
My diagnosis was four damaged discs, scoliosis, peripheral neuropathy, and bone-on-bone in the SI joint. During those eight years, I received no fewer than fourteen epidural and eight pinpoint injections. In addition to the treatments, I took between 1200 and 1800 mg Ibuprofen, 1200 mg Neurontin, 15 mg Vicodin and 30 mg Cymbalta daily. Physically, I was able to walk approximately 50 yards before the pain began to escalate and I would have to stop at 100 yards. I was a wreck headed for a wheelchair.
After 90 days I started a strengthening program. At about 180 days, I stopped corrective therapy and concentrated on strength, stability and balance. My progress has been nothing short of miraculous. Not only am I able to do sustained activity such as walking (6 hours at the L.A. Car Show), swimming and gardening, I do it pain-free and without medication. That is correct, I was able to stop all meds after six months! I feel better now than I did 20 years ago, and I say that without reservation or exaggeration. Not too bad for a seventy-five year-old, wouldn’t you say? Thank you, ROCK Team.”
