WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO ALLIANCE SPINE AND PAIN CENTERS?

I had surgery on my neck to repair vertebrae a few years ago. However, the relief was temporary, and it started hurting again.  My pain was severe, so my chiropractor recommended Alliance Spine and Pain Centers. I couldn’t even do simple physical therapy until I got some relief.

My treatment at Alliance began with Dr. S. Christopher Cable. About four months ago, he gave me cortisone injections, which really eased the pain.  I could finally move my neck from left to right. I previously had a hard time driving, but now that’s better too.

Currently, I am working with Dr. Cable on my lower back pain, a separate issue from the neck pain that originally brought me to Alliance. We are exploring the possibility of a spinal cord stimulator treatment.

TELL US ABOUT THE ALLIANCE PHYSICIAN YOU WORKED WITH.

Dr. Cable is a very easy doctor to talk to. I liked his manner and that he took his time when talking with me. He always answered every single one of my questions, regardless of how many I had.

HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH ALLIANCE SPINE AND PAIN CENTERS?

It’s been very good! The whole atmosphere is very relaxing. The staff at the Woodstock location are so pleasant. If you come in nervous, they put you right at ease. Also, I never had a problem making appointments.

WHAT LESSON DO YOU WANT THOSE READING YOUR STORY TO LEARN?

Don’t suffer from your pain! Call Dr. Cable’s office and talk to him to get relief.
