I have had both neck and low back conditions that made my life very unpleasant due to chronic pain. Although I could do most activities normally, I was always uncomfortable. I experienced these symptoms probably about 6-12 months before seeking treatment with Dr. Schuler at Virginia Spine Institute because I finally realized my pain was not an ergonomic issue and I was so uncomfortable.
Treatment for my neck and low back pain were very different. First I had a cervical fusion and I obtained complete comfort. The muscle strain and occipital ache are all gone. With my lower back I had undergone multiple non-surgical interventions that provided some relief, but the underlying pain was never gone. That’s when I decided to try stem cell therapy.
Now, almost 3 months after stem cell therapy I am almost pain free!
My experience at Virginia Spine Institute was wonderful! I went to the best doctors I could find – the folks at VSI are the only ones I will ever let touch my spine. I would also like to thank Alyssa, the nurse that took care of me after the stem cell procedure, and Carmen, the front desk supervisor who is always so pleasant and helpful. Thank you, Virginia Spine Institute!
