I was experiencing shooting nerve pain, and had difficulty moving my neck. I was able to continue with my normal activities, including working, but only with pain pills to help me walk and move my head. The pain was so bad it even woke me up in the middle of the night! After four months in pain, I was concerned I may be causing permanent damage to my spine. I had already suffered from a herniated disc and had surgery years before so I knew it was time to seek treatment.
I found Virginia Spine Institute and my experience could not have been any better! Everyone was very helpful and professional. My surgeon recommended an Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion that would better stabilize the spinal bones in my neck. The entire staff at Virginia Spine Institute was supportive and attentive to my every need during the preparation and recovery of my surgery. The surgery completely took away all pain and discomfort… I feel 18 again!
