Escaping Chronic Back Pain

Meet John, a 33-year-old man who had been battling back pain due to a work-related strain that aggravated a pre-existing lower back problem. Struggling with both physical discomfort and emotional distress, John's journey towards relief seemed like an impossible uphill battle until he found hope at The Rizor Institute.

Rediscovering Hope After Chronic Pain

At 67 years old, Jeff felt like he had tried everything he could to overcome his numerous health challenges. Most significantly, he had been struggling with severe back pain for over five years. His journey has been fraught with complexities, from medical conditions like myocardial infarction, myasthenia gravis (MG), and gout, to struggles with mobility due to obesity and chronic opioid use.

A New Chapter After Chronic Pain

Sara was only 46 years old but had already experienced more pain than most. She suffered from chronic nonspecific musculoskeletal pain throughout her body, including her lower back, neck, shoulder, and feet. This pain caused her physical activity to decrease, leading to generalized deconditioning. She had also been diagnosed with complex post-traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD) with dissociative symptoms.
