"In November of 2005 I suffered a mountain biking accident that resulted in the herniation of my L4/L5 lumbar disc. Since the accident my physical condition continued to deteriorate until I was forced to forego essentially all of my outdoor sports activities, despite working with a number of other therapists, chiropractors and physicians.
Fortunately, I made an appointment to see you in June of 2011 at which time you took the time to review my reports, MRI discs and x-rays. Upon concluding your review you felt that it was possible for me to resume a more active lifestyle. I underwent an epidural injection on July1, 2011 and I am pleased to report that it has had a significant, positive impact on my life. I am now starting to resume on a limited basis, and under the supervision of a physical therpist a core strengthening program with swimming, biking and hiking. Because my pain has been reduced significantly through the procedure, I am able to hope that I will continue to improve over time.
I would like to thank you for taking the time to consider my spinal injury and proposing a program for getting me back on a path to a healthier lifestyle. I look forward to continuing to progress over time."
