Dear Dr. Barone,
I came to you after I herniated L4-5 disc in my lower back. Being only 32 years old, and suffering from some extreme low back pain that radiated into my left buttockfor two weeks, I was recommended to you by my mother, Kathy Marston, who knows you personally. The pain caused me to lose time from work, sleep and stop most of all my normal daily activities. Before seeing you I was recommended to see a pain specialist for steroid injections or possibly even surgery. After my mother’s recommendation, and the trust the she has for you, I felt comfortable and very quickly trusted you and your treatment.
After the very first examination and adjustment, there was a great difference in the pain. In fact, the very next day I was pain free for the first time for more than 6 hours without any medication. I felt that I was not leaning or crooked in my posture as well after the first adjustment. After only one month of treatment the pain and discomfort had nearly completely diminished. Presently I am able to play softball, 4 games a week, when before I could not even touch my toes. The daily amounts of pain have completely disappeared and I am leading the life I had previous to this injury.
Thank you, – Chris M.
