Sara W. - I have been boating on the lake, swimming, riding on roller coasters at a theme park, and enjoying my summer!
Before I came to see Dr. Winget, I was dealing with low back pain that would radiate into my buttocks and the back of my legs. I was diagnosed with a spondylolisthesis at L5-S1. It would hurt every day, much more severe in the mornings, and would loosen up some during the day. In the morning, my pain level would get to be about as bad as I could stand. The pain would come and go through the day, but was always affecting me. I could not bend down to tie my shoes, and the pain prevented me from exercising, dancing, and playing tennis. It affected things around the house, like unloading the dishwasher, bending to get things in and out of the oven, or sitting for long car rides.
After my third decompression visit, I had already noticed that my back was improving. My symptoms changed from pain to slight stiffness. I was already noticing that it was easier to bend down to tie my shoes. I did have a day or two during the first weeks that my back pain would return, but it was not nearly as severe as it was before. By the third week, the pain was nearly gone!
I am feeling much better now, and have been able to return to doing things that would have been very painful before. I have been boating on the lake, swimming, riding on roller coasters at a theme park, and enjoying my summer!
