I had been suffering from sciatica pain for 5 months when I went to Progressive Medical for help. I was taking 12 Advil per day and that was not taking the edge off anymore. I had pain down my leg and throbbing pain in my hip. One of the Doctors there suggested I should have an MRI done. After determining that I had a herniated disc at L5 and some other degenerating going on in other discs. Right away they suggested that I try Decompression Therapy. They let me know that my condition was very severe. I was willing to try anything to keep from having back surgery. After 6 visits going to PMC 3 times a week I started noticing a big difference. I was able to sit through a church service without being in so much pain that I had to stand in the back of the church. I have continued to improve. PMC has been there to support me the whole way by giving me exercises to strengthen my core and in the beginning to manage my pain with different therapies. I was recently able to sit through a play that my two girls were starring in and that was an amazing feeling. Now after 22 decompression sessions over 11 weeks, my pain level has dropped from an 8 to a 4. I am not pain free yet but I’m committed to the process and so thankful for her support both physically and emotionally.
