I was injured in a escalator accident at the Las Vegas Airport. After 2 years of seeking relief through physical therapy and injections, I found Dr. Bassewitz. He felt that he could help me and after 2 years I had not been able to walk around the block let alone clean the house or just stand for more than 30 seconds. It has been a year as of November 17, 2014. I can walk 1-2 miles with little problems. I still have small discomfort but nothing like it was. While I am 85 percent better than I was, I am grateful for the relief. I had a spinal fusion with caging in the lumbar area.
My treatment and recovery
The treatment was difficult at first. The therapy recommended was walking a mile per day beginning after the first week. While I could not do a mile all at once, I did 1/4 mile at a time until I could get to the full mile.
I would say that it was 6 months before I could do much but the walking really helped get me going. I still do stretches every day before getting out of bed in the morning and have found that has really helped me.
