I would not have been able to keep up with the daily three mile walk, if I had not had the lumbar facet injections prior to my trip departure. I am happy to share with you a few interesting points about my trip to Southeast Asia: Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam. I was able to participate fully in all of the activities including an elephant ride in Thailand, a 328-step climb up Phousi Hill in Laos, and a tunnel excursion in a stooped position in Vietnam. Virginia Spine Institute was the key to my pain free travels in Southeast Asia. Please convey a special “thanks” to each of them.
