“I developed a shooting pain and numbed in my right leg. After tolerating this pain for several months, waiting for it to “go away,” I finally consulted my GP, who initially prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs. When these did not help, he sent me for x-rays, which showed I had degenerative disc disease and arthritis of the spine in my lower back. He sent me to an orthopedic surgeon who first sent me for a cortisone shot in my back. This did not help my leg, and, in fact, my back pain got worse. The orthopedic surgeon then sent me for an MRI, which indicated that I had a herniated disc which was causing the legs pains. His only answer for this problem was surgery! I decided to consider surgery only a last resort, and decided to try chiropractic first.
Dr. Koff recommended exercise and treatment 3 times a week for 3-4 weeks. After only a few treatments, the pain in my leg was entirely gone and has not returned.”
