Jeffery Featured

26 Sep

Jeffery has had back problems since he was 15, mostly muscle spasms. Around 2015, he developed what he felt like was rubber bands around his legs right below his knees on the tops of his calves. The symptoms started getting worse, and he developed leg cramps. Late at night he would wake up from the pain. The hardest thing is he is on his feet all day and it was getting hard to make it through the day. Jeff went into to get an MRI and he was diagnosed with spinal stenosis.


How long were you experiencing pain prior to having the superion procedure?

For several years I had leg pain, it got so it felt like there were bands around my legs that made difficult to stand or walk.

What other treatments did you have?

I tried medication but it made me unable to concentrate and comprehend while I was playing in my band and trying to read my fiddle music. I didn’t want to be on medication like that.

Prior to the procedure, what were you unable to do/experience in life?

I got to where I couldn’t walk very far, couldn’t be on my feet for my job which is as a nurse in a large pain clinic in Wisconsin, and I couldn’t stand while playing in my bluegrass band.

How was your experience the day of the procedure?

I went in and had the procedure done, in 30 minutes it was over! I went home that same day and was walking the very next day.

What was your recovery like?

I noticed pain relief the very next day. There was still some pain at the incision site and it took about a month for me to be back to my walks. I was able to be back at my job one week later and at six weeks I was able to take a six mile walk!

Tell us why you feel this procedure was successful for you.

I am back to doing the things I love to do, playing my music, working and taking care of my farm. I can haul grain, move band equipment, everything I did before!
