"Spine Nevada helped me get back to an active life with a straighter spine."

From an early age, Jody has enjoyed staying active. His first experience with back pain took place following a severe fall during high school track practice. While his painful spine symptoms from the sports fall went away over time, Jody experienced spells of back pain throughout the years. He tried several non-surgical treatments, including physical therapy and injection therapy, and put off spine surgery for years. Ultimately, his spine condition (diagnosed as spinal stenosis caused by scoliosis) would require a laminectomy surgery to alleviate pressure on pinched nerves.
