TRUE STORY: AFTER YEARS OF DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE, COREY DIDN’T WANT TO LIVE ANOTHER DAY IN PAIN!
After years of degenerative disc disease affecting every aspect of daily life, I finally sought treatment at Virginia Spine Institute after being admitted to the Emergency Room twice over the course of 72 hours. The previous 10 years had been filled with progressively worse back pain, and fruitless visits to various other specialists.
Dr. Christopher Good and his staff first saw me in September 2011. On December 20, 2011, I underwent my first surgery, and on December 22, 2011, I had a second surgery. The surgeries included a two level lumbar anterior fusion with instrumentation. Shortly after the 90-day mark, my back had fused and I was able to fully return to all activities.
For the first time in my adult life, I am truly pain free...and I have Dr. Christopher Good to thank for this. Now I can walk for miles, run, jump, and do all sorts of things I always avoided due to my fragile back. I am running the “We’ve Got Your Back” 5K race because for the first time, I CAN.

Thank you to my team!
