TRUE STORY: MR. BAKER SPENT 15 YEARS IN PAIN; NOW HE’S BACK TO HIS LIVELIHOOD AS A FARMER
As the owner of Baker Farms in Mt. Jackson, Virginia, my lifelong profession is one that is physically demanding. I have been pursuing my passion for farming for over 35 years; but not without pain. Over the past 15 years, I’ve learned to live with low back pain until finally one day the pain literally drove me to the floor. My lifestyle was literally taken away from me. I couldn’t stand up and was walking hunched over. I didn’t know where to turn. I tried several other modalities including chiropractic but just couldn’t seem to permanently silence the pain. This pain continued to weigh on me not just physically but also emotionally.
I was scared to death. This all felt like a bad dream. That was until I found Dr. Good and the team at Virginia Spine Institute. Something I kept putting off for 15 years finally came to a head and I was forced to seek treatment. After my initial consultation, Dr. Good assured me that although this was a very complex case as long as I followed his directions he would get me back to my life. And sure enough after a Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF), to repair my lumbar annular tear, herniated disc, and spondylolisthesis, this top notch team had me on the road to recovery.
The personal touches by Dr. Good and his team made me feel like I was a real person. Now I am back to my life and livelihood 100% after back pain took my life away for so long.
Thank you to my team!
