Why am I so passionate about lower back pain and neck pain?
Because I've had it. Sciatica so bad I was unable to work. Tingling down my arm and into my fingers keeping me up at night.
In fact, after only a year of being a physical therapist, a doctor told me, "young lady, you need to find a different profession."
I'd had a low back injury and after multiple MRI's, physical therapy, epidural injections and surgery, I still had pain.
Now, I specialize in the spine, and after seventeen years, and thousands of patients, I believe in 3 things when it comes to healthcare:
- Following high quality research studies should be mandatory for healthcare providers;
- That the focus should only be on the nuts and bolts of what actually works for patients;
- Creating patient independence because no one has time to waste.
