My pain started a little over 3 years ago in upper back of my legs and got worse with walking, relieved by sitting. I was not able to take long walks without a lot of pain and often times decided not to engage in that activity.
Early treatment (not with Dr. Murphy) consisted of epidural spinal injections which lasted about 2 months, then I suffered for an extra month before being allowed another injection (because of the limit of how often these can be safely administered).
With Dr. Murphy’s treatment, I no longer need the injections. While I still have some discomfort occasionally, I can engage in all the activities I want. Long walks with my wife are back as part of my routine. I highly recommend Dr. Murphy for non-invasive and effective chiropractic diagnosis and treatment.
After exploring all standard methods of imaging, epidural injections, consultation with 3 orthopedic surgeons, the choices I was contemplating were “living with the pain,” regular epidural spinal injections every few months, or surgery.
I wanted to explore chiropractic treatment as a possible way to resolve my condition without invasive methods. After research, I decided on visiting with Dr. Murphy based on a referral and on his certifications and the option of decompression therapy.
After reviewing all my medical history and conducting his own exam, Dr. Murphy put me on a program combining stretching and exercises with decompression therapy. It worked like magic!
One orthopedic surgeon I had consulted with was so impressed by the results that he asked for Dr. Murphy’s contact to reach out to him and discuss his methods for possible recommendations to his patients.
Dr. Murphy addressed all my questions, always took his time, and adopted an approach of partnering with me to ensure the best progress, that I stay motivated, and adopt the right routine and mindset. All these ingredients were key to success in my case.
