Being Told Spinal Fusion Surgery is the Solution to your Back Pain? Consider Physical Therapy Instead.
We know that when we say our physical therapy techniques can help to eliminate the need for back surgery, that you think we're crazy. We're drinking too much of the physical therapy kool-aid. So don't take our word for it. This patient wrote a review on Google explaining how instead of spinal fusion surgery, physical therapy has been effective at eliminating his pain.

I'm a former football player and I retired after 33 years as a Professional Firefighter/Paramedic and have suffered from acute then chronic back and neck pain since the age of 47, I'm now 62. I have seen Neuro surgeons whom have recommended fusion of my lower back and also recently my neck due to herniated disc, degenerative disk disease and spondylosis of the spine.
At one time in my life during acute injury I could not walk across a room let alone work! But I didn't want to have spinal surgery. I had decided to seek other treatments so I could avoid this surgery! I have tried chiropractic which helped for several years but then it to was no longer effective and even became intolerable due to spasms. I have tried traction which also helped for several years but then didn't seem to help as much. I have always tried to stayed active and continued my workouts! I have never lived a sedentary life style.
So when discomfort and pain came back, I decided to try this program offered by this clinic and Dr. Evan Hammons whom evaluated me and has started me on a treatment plan for my lower back which I do every day! I have been doing it for 6 months now and I must say I have no pain and very little stiffness. I feel so much better!! He has even added to my plan with further success!!
So when recently my neck started to cause me discomfort I contacted Dr Hammons for evaluation of my neck and now with his expanded treatment plan, follow up and by doing the plan for my entire spine I feel so much better!!!
The discomfort/pain/stiffness have either completely subsided or became minimal!!! I highly recommend anyone with this type of pain and condition to seriously give this a try! I plan to continue and incorporate this into my life permanently!
Thanks to Dr. Evan Hammons!
