I was heavily involved with high school sports, a physical education major in college, an Army infantry officer and 28 years a middle school teacher. My hobbies were bicycling and white water rafting. As I neared retirement problems started showing up in my lower back. My weight gain added to the problem.
The pain became a case of how tense and how frequent. I lived with it, but the pain won out. I've tried steroid shots, chiropractic decompression, acupuncture and radio frequency ablation. The RFA lasted the longest, almost 10 yrs.
However, the pain did return and RFA seemed the right choice again. It's been months since the procedure and I am doing very well. I go on mile long dog walks each day and several bike rides each week. Dr. Mosallaie and his team are very good at this. Thanks to them I no longer say, " No, I can't." I now say ,"Yes, I can". Thank you, Dr. Mosallaie.
