I experienced a nearly 100 percent recovery.
Before coming to the Kaplan Center, I had seen three different doctors and received 2 epidural blocks for severe lower back pain. But instead of improving, my condition had worsened to the point where I couldn’t carry out normal, everyday activities, like walking a block or climbing one flight of stairs, never mind carrying groceries or pushing a vacuum cleaner. Frankly, I was on the verge of losing my job from missing so much work.
At the Kaplan Center, I was diagnosed with degenerative disk disease, radiculopathy, leg weakness, spinal stenosis, a sleep disorder, and osteoarthritis. After only a few months of receiving osteopathic manual manipulation and acupuncture treatments, I experienced a nearly 100 percent recovery. I was able to join my brother for a week-long sailing trip in the Caribbean, something I could not even have imagined doing prior to receiving care at the Kaplan Center.
