It has been 7 months and my back still feels great. I feel zero pain most days. I am walking and still doing stretch exercises from physical therapy specialist of idaho. The physical therapy team was fantastic. I am able to walk for miles without pain. I am able to play with my 2 daughters age 7 and 11 as a single dad, without experiencing pain. This is after 1 surgery. Dr. Blair's bedside manner is one of the best I have ever seen. I can see that he cares. The office is efficient with plenty of parking, and the office easy to get to.
