It's stories like these that make us truly proud to do what we do at HIDEF.
Check this story out from one of our amazing patients:
"I am so so grateful to have found this place. I came in with two herniated discs in my lower back. I couldn't run, walking was painful, and sitting down was unbearable. Actually, doing anything was painful. Sneezing. Moving in my bed. I had pain in my lower back since last November but didn't get an MRI right away to identify what was wrong. I saw two chiropractors, a physical therapist, a massage therapist, and even went to Urgent Care when my pain was at its worst before I got an MRI. I was so beyond frustrated. Every health professional I went to was extremely kind and tried to help me the best they could, but until I found HIDEF I kind of thought I was just going to have to live with this pain for the rest of my life. Everyone I went to either didn't know what was wrong or told me it was a muscle sprain (or pulled lower back muscle). A lot of people told me it wasn't likely I had any disc injuries because I was "too young". I'm in my early twenties.
So, after seeing all those people, I went to get an MRI. It showed I had two herniated discs in my lower back. I searched physical therapists and HIDEF came up. After contacting them, I explained all my symptoms and asked if they could somehow help me. Zach, my physical therapist, got back super quick and was super helpful with everything down to figuring out my insurance. I started coming here in June, and it is now early August and I am running, swimming, even deadlifting, all without pain.
I cannot thank everyone enough at HIDEF. Zach was super knowledgeable about everything he talked about. What I really liked was that every session was different. We were always working to heal and strengthen my back. Every session I could feel I was progressively getting stronger and had less pain. I just don't know how to put into words how happy I am to finally be able to do everything I used to without being on medication or had to go through surgery.
If you have herniated discs or an injury like that and have pretty much given up after being told medication or surgery were your only options to help your pain, GO HERE. They have a ton of 5 stars for a reason."
Don't ever let someone tell you that you can't get back to 100%!
