At a recent visit to Advanced Pain Management, Patricia said she felt so good she wanted to go horseback riding. A woman behind her commented that she wished she could do that too and that she would never be able to because of her pain.
“She reminded me so much of myself when I started my treatment at APM — kind of down and thinking that I would never be able to do anything again,” said Patricia. “I turned to her and smiled and said ‘Honey, keep your hopes up. Dr. Araujo is a wonderful guy. He does great work. You can do exactly what I'm doing. Mark my words, you’ll feel a whole lot better.’ ”
You see, Patricia was in a lot of pain before she found the pain specialists at Advanced Pain Management. Dr. Marco Araujo worked with Patricia to find a treatment plan that helped her manage her pain. A series of minimally invasive epidural steroid injections have helped Patricia reduce her pain and have allowed her to get back to living. Now, Patricia is outside riding her bike and walking her dog, and she hopes to be back on a horse again soon.
Patricia is thankful to the staff at APM for helping her relieve her pain. “They are all very kind, very sweet and gentle. I don’t have anything but good things to say about them.”
Patricia is particularly thankful to Dr. Araujo. “He is not a quitter,” she said. “He keeps working with you until he finds a treatment that will work for you.”
