Ever since her back surgery, Maxine has suffered from pain. She was told that pain was normal after surgery, but after a year of pain, Maxine knew she needed to do something. With her love of gardening, walking and exercise, Maxine was not going to let pain slow her down.
That is when Maxine discovered Dr. Mark Aasen, and she is thankful for the care and service she has received at Advanced Pain Management.
“From the minute you walk in the door, everybody that you meet throughout the visit is so friendly and very professional – you feel like you are in good hands.”
Maxine’s treatment included epidural steroid injections for lower back pain and a vertebroplasty for a spinal compression fracture. Maxine is quick to comment that at Advanced Pain Management the physicians really focus on individual treatments, in addition to lifestyle changes. “It's not all about medication and procedures,” Maxine said. “It’s about nutrition. It’s about exercise. It’s about things that you can do to help with the treatment so that everything works beautifully together.”
To complement her procedures, Dr. Aasen recommended water aerobics and an exercise regime for Maxine – both of which have helped Maxine reduce her pain level and improve her overall health. Thanks to Advanced Pain Management, she knows that pain will not slow her down again.
