As a passionate student and author, Yehuda struggled profoundly with chronic back pain, not only physically but also mentally. He found it difficult, if not impossible, to focus on the persistent, debilitating pain. His pain would flare up with movement, including walking just 10 or 15 steps. Though he is a heart patient, Yehuda found that his back pain was the primary reason for the decline in his quality of life and performance. 

Searching for Relief

Yehuda exhausted the conservative treatments available for his spinal pain, including monthly epidural shots, acupuncture, and radiofrequency treatments. These methods failed to provide lasting relief, and Yehuda determined that surgery was the last available option.
