Spine Injury/Condition

Spine Injury/Condition

Bradley Wade

In 2005, I medically retired out of the Army and returned to farming, which is something I’ve always been passionate about. I love to bale hay and run heavy equipment.

I have had a history of knee, back, and shoulder surgery in the past, but last year it really took over my life. I was unable to farm and had to hire some people to help me out.

Leading up to my appointment with Dr. Andrew Cordover, I was having problems walking and  holding things in my hands. I thought my problems were age related to arthritis. Instead, I had a bruised spinal cord and arthritis in my neck that was pinching nerves.

Dr. Cordover is wonderful. He gave me all my options and explained them to me. He was very professional and kind and gave me the confidence to make the best decision for me.

For several years I suffered with lower back and leg pain. I attended formal physical therapy and continued to home rehab and at-home isometrics with some benefits. Unfortunately, the pain progressed. I was constantly in pain. Standing and moving around helped more than sitting, and I would get a little relief by lying down. I am a school nurse and with pain in both legs and my lower back made it difficult to work some days.

At the age of 61, I have had a history of rheumatoid arthritis. In addition, a recent fall resulted in me twisting my right knee. I started having some popping and swelling in my knee with weightbearing activities, which caused constant pain and discomfort when sitting.

I’m almost 72 now, and very modestly state that younger men can not believe my physical condition and abilities. Most men at my age would have taken pain medication, changed careers, started taking it easy, so forth and so on.

John Bennett

My name is John Bennett and I have lived my entire life in Anniston, AL. I believe Dr. Steven Nichols saved my life on November 6, 2018.

I have been physically active since my 30’s, consistently working out and running 4 days per week. My entire life, I’ve been healthy with no health issues.

After six back surgeries, I was beginning to think lumbar back pain was here to stay. During my first visit with Dr. Andrew Cordover, he ordered testing to determine the cause of my lumbar back pain and tingling/numbness in my legs and feet. The problem was identified, and after reviewing with Dr. Cordover, surgery was scheduled.

I want to thank Dr. Steven Nichols and everyone at Andrews Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center. They are a great bunch of down to earth folks, always smiling, and the nicest people you could have care for you! From the ladies in imaging all the way to surgery!
