Spine Injury/Condition

Spine Injury/Condition

Lindsey Woodard

In mid 2018, my neck began to bother me.  I had started CrossFit but did not attribute my pain to an injury. I went to my primary care physician who prescribed physical therapy. Later, I saw a chiropractor for treatment too.  Unfortunately, nothing seemed to improve my pain. My condition had gotten worse. I was now experiencing pain down my left arm and was losing the feeling in my fingertips. This resulted in me frequently dropping items that I was holding in my left hand.

John Hubka, Jr.

I am 57 years old and live in McCalla, Alabama. Being on my feet is essential in my occupation as an engineer for medical equipment as well as my passion for hunting.

In December 2019, I was hunting black bear in the mountains of Virginia. During my trip, I started to experience pain in my legs. It was tough to walk.

Todd Howle

I was involved in a car accident when I was 15 years old. The accident shifted the top part of my spine up, causing my chest to bow out and putting a lot of pressure on my lower spine.

Over the years, I went to a number of chiropractors for adjustments, and saw doctors to try steroid shots and anti-inflammatories. Nothing ever worked.

Bradley Wade

In 2005 I medically retired from the U.S. 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.

Jennifer Wallace

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.

Diane Reed

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.

Ronald Dyer

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.
