I was not able to participate in regular life activities. Regular exercise was difficult to be consistent without major setbacks due to weak back and leg. The inability to “play” with friends and my husband left me feeling isolated and low. Eventually so low that I felt hopeless. Since beginning [treatment] I can feel my leg and foot again. The numbness is almost completely gone and I no longer compensate with my other leg, allowing me to be more active. It changed my life. I am so grateful to Dr. Storm. She is extremely knowledgeable, encouraging, listens and is determined to get to the heart of the issue to help you get better. What I appreciate most is that when I think that I feel ‘good enough’, she helps me address every issue so that I feel ‘my best self‘.
I incurred a bad reherniation of my L5-S1 disc – of which I’d had a discectomy in 2014. I was seeking any alternative treatment then having to go back under the knife. I read about Dr. Storm and her treatment options and schedule a consultation with her. [Symptoms included] major sciatic nerve pain from my right buttock down my right leg into my foot that had lasted approximately 6 weeks. I could not sleep. I could not walk more than 100 feet without searing pain down my leg. I could not sit nor stand for any periods of time. There was no comfortable position! [After treatment with Dr. Storm] I am back at the gym regularly and I am getting my road/trail mileages backup to an acceptable level. I will continue to see Dr. Storm in the future to ensure that I am maintaining course and speed!
