Low Back Pain, Neuropathy, Balance Problems | Richard Testimonial
Dr. Currie: Today is October 16th, 2013, and this is Mr. Richard. Richard, as far as your pain and everything, what brought you to Arkansas Spinal Care? Richard: Pain brought me to Arkansas Spinal Care. Dr.
Currie: Where? Richard: In my hips. Dr. Currie: In your hips? Richard: Yes, in my hips.
Dr. Currie: Go ahead, tell me about it. Richard: I went to three doctors, and they kept telling me it was inflammation.
I never got any relief from paying the bills. I went to get the steroid shots, and it lasted for about six weeks on one occasion. I had to go back, and I went back and told my doctor that I didn't want to come back and take shots every, three, four, or six weeks. I wanted it fixed, so he fixed me. He gave me a doctor in Little Rock, so I went there. They were planning on doing surgery on the first of September or October.
A friend of mine, that went to the clinic here, told me that I should come by and check with Dr. Currie. She said that once you get operated on the back, you can't replace nothing, and I should take a look at this. So I came here, I talked with Dr. Currie, and I signed on.
I liked the results that I was getting, and this is the first time, in a long time, that I've been able to brush my teeth without having to sit down. The pain was so severe, if I started brushing my teeth, I would have to sit down. Now I can brush my teeth. I can start preforming things that I once did like, pitching horse shoes, walking, not a great distance, but I don't have the pain that I once did. Plus I like the way that Dr. Currie works with his patients. He don't run them through like a cattle drive at a cattle barn.
You know, he takes time, spends time with you. Most doctors now they just give you a prescription and take off. He spends time with each one of his patients, and that means something. Dr. Currie: Thank you very much. So I mean, you're not a zero on the pain scale, we wouldn't call it that. But if you came in here and it was really bad and you were looking at having surgery, right now where would you rate it? Richard: Right now, I'm say about a three up to somewhere around that line.
Dr. Currie: So that's pretty doggone good, compared. Richard: That's damn good! Dr.
Currie: Do you think you avoided back surgery with this procedure? Richard: I think, I'm pretty sure I did, because I was at the point where I was going to have surgery. I had signed up to go down, and after I came here. The lady told me that she had been in pain so many years, and she said that she got results.
I know this lady and I know she didn't lie to me. So that was a good suggestion. Dr. Currie: I really appreciate your testimony. Richard: It's the truth though. Dr. Currie: Thank you. What would you tell somebody who needed this care, if you were going to tell someone to come here? Richard: I would definitely recommend that they come to Dr.
Currie before they went under the knife. Dr. Currie: Thank you, Richard. Richard: You're welcome, sir.
