At the age of 18, Norina was in a rollover accident, which led to a bulging and shattered spinal disc. She sought help for her pain, but wasn't interested in taking pain medications. She wanted an alternative.
She came to Advanced Pain Management because she wanted to know what her options were. She met with the staff at Advanced Pain Management and Dr. Nilesh Patel. Together, they discussed all of the available treatment options.
“The first thing he said to me is, ‘We’re going to help, and we are not going to push pills on you,' ” said Norina. “That meant everything to me, because as a parent, you can’t be on pills all day.”
Norina proceeded with a series of injections that have helped her reduce her pain, and she no longer requires daily pain medications.
“I wake up and I have energy. I don’t feel pain anymore.” She added, “I can pick up my daughter and play with her and I just have my life back. It is a complete difference for me.”
