I don’t have to sit and wait to be seen either.
Excruciating sciatica pain left me crying whenever I had to drive just a few miles. It kept me from being able to sit at my desk job and perform my job duties, as well as caused me to miss some important work meetings due to my inability to commute any distance, nor to sit for long periods of time. I had to cancel lunch dates and other social interactions. I would go to work, return home, and go straight to bed, because lying down or walking were the only things that weren’t painful.
I didn’t want to take any type of drugs, like many people have stated they do when sciatica flares up. That only masks the pain and fills one’s liver with toxins. I wanted a more natural approach to working with my body to heal itself. Upon recommendations from co-workers, I sought help from Montvale Health & Wellness.
I was impressed with the thoroughness and knowledge of everyone there. I remember my sister stating, “That’s how you know you have a good doctor,” when I told her they wanted to perform tests and get the MRI results before beginning treatment.
The staff is very friendly, organized and cheerful. Appointments are made according to what I can fit in my schedule. I don’t have to sit and wait to be seen either. They all are also very knowledgeable asking the correct questions, and using the correct terminology and assessment for treatment during each visit. The doctors take the time to explain everything, as well as the physical therapists. The DRX machine for spinal decompression is the best invention ever. What could be better than lying down for gentle decompression with a machine doing the work, while you laugh and watch “Everyone Loves Raymond” or “Seinfeld” episodes sans commercials!
Their treatment worked, and now I feel even better than I did before the sciatica flared up! Plus, I gained an added bonus of getting my abs and core more toned and strengthened.
A sincere thank you to all the staff for helping me become pain free and happy again.
