Jerry S. chronic pain warrior (80 years old) experienced lower back pain after life had caught up with him. Years of playing football, lacrosse and tennis had taken its toll on his body. He ran the whole gamut on conservative therapies – physical therapy, chiropractic therapy, and epidural injections. Finally he decided on spine surgery, which was his last resort. Unfortunately after the procedure he felt the same amount of pain. That’s when a visit with Dr. Hersel led him to the spinal cord stimulator from Nevro. After his implant, Jerry said, “Please don’t make any changes, I have no pain.”  He’s happy to report that he’s 98% pain free without taking any pain medications. Jerry says “If I had to do it all over again, I’d choose the stimulator in a heartbeat.” He’s even referring friends who suffer from the same pain as him.
