Before meeting Dr. Cunningham, I had experienced daily debilitating back pain for about 13 years that limited my ability to run, which had always been a favorite hobby of mine. I saw multiple doctors and tried a myriad of treatment options, all with little to no lasting results. By the time Dr. Cunningham scheduled my surgery I was walking with a cane and had almost no use of my right leg in addition to the nonstop lower back pain. I woke from surgery already feeling improvement, and within a few months I was experiencing little to no pain. Thanks to Dr. Cunningham and his team, I was able to train for and run my first marathon just over 2 years after my surgery.
