I’m a 16-year-old athlete in high school so I’m not the typical patient for an orthopedic surgeon.
I’ve had back problems for a really long time and I kept putting off going to see my doctor.
I’ve always exercised, ate well and maintained an active lifestyle, but things changed for me while on a trip in Florida.
A car accident in college left me with a bad back. In an effort to resolve my discomfort I had two surgeries.
I spend most of my days at a computer desk and during the course of a day I would stand up to relieve the pain, but found it hard to stand up.
