Police Officer Gets Back on the Road After Microdiscectomy
Back Surgery 

In September of 2016, I had my second microdiscectomy back surgery. My first microdiscectomy surgery was in 2013, on the same disc L4/S5. I started attending physical therapy at Utah Hand and Ortho a few months later, in December 2016. I was working with Dave Moss and his staff. This is the second time they have put me back together. My job as a police officer requires a fair amount of physical exertion and strength. Working with Dave and his staff helped me strengthen my core, legs and back all while getting me back into shape and back onto the road. It is/was a pleasure working out with these guys and I honestly looked forward to the challenges of the therapy/work out. I could feel and see my body getting stronger and my confidence in “getting” better soared as well. Thank you guys at Utah Hand and Ortho, for getting me back on the road with my K9 partner T-bone. You are awesome.

From Hopelessness to Having Her Life Back through Dry Needling

I have struggled with back pain for over 2 years. The pain was so severe I had to give up running and other physical activities, I couldn’t even walk quickly. I could no longer travel because sitting was extremely painful, even having to push on the brake while driving was a major ordeal. I wasn’t even able to sleep at night for more than a few hours. I saw multiple doctors seeking relief, took lots of medications just to get through the pain and allow me to sleep, and had multiple injections to try and alleviate the pain. I had seen Todd on and off for this problem and while he was able to alleviate the pain for short periods of time I was still in pain most of the time and felt hopeless. I had to completely adjust my active lifestyle and was in survival mode. A few months ago Todd asked me if I’d be willing to try a new procedure called dry needling. Figuring I had nothing to lose, I said, “sure.” After the first treatment I didn’t have to take any medications for five days, it was amazing. After each treatment the pain stayed away longer. I have now had it done four times, it’s been three weeks since my last treatment and I still feel great. I haven’t taken any medications for two months, and the best part is I can move without pain! I can actually sleep at night, we’ve planned a couple of trips this summer because I can sit again. A couple of days ago I ran three miles and it felt great! I am forever indebted to Todd and his staff. Thanks for giving me my life back!
