Chula Vista, CA
The pain and thought of my particular back was very significant. My name is Armando Martinez and I am still on active duty in the U.S. Navy thanks to Dr. Bell ?? who made a difference. Here??s my story.
In 2001, I fell off of a jet aircraft that I was working on, and was thrown into the landing gear. I broke my tail bone, cut open my leg, and came to find out that I also had a compression fracture with my lumbar 5 and S1 disc. All this happened on the flight deck of the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier. Since the ship couldn??t help, I was med-evacked to a hospital in Saudi Arabia.
Well, 5 years later I was in so much pain still that I took about 20minutes to go down 16 steps of stairs one morning. There were days when I just couldn??t move to the left, right, or even just move because of the pain in my back. Imagine being in pain. Now imagine being in tears because of the pain and that thought of ??How long is this going to last?? You can??t stand it as you lay there, not even able to go to the store. I tried all kinds of physical therapists, different exercises, medications, and even 4 other doctors. What made the difference? People who cared; Dr. Bell and his staff, and of course the DRX9000.
I am now jumping for joy and so relieved of having NO PAIN that I constantly tell family, friends, and even strangers where to go for help. I was scared, nervous and even a little doubtful at first, but now, plainly put, I??M HAPPY! The machine works. My wife even told me that I am not complaining of pain anymore. I used to have pain and tears, but now I jump, play with our kids, and that is worth everything!! I??m another happy ??pain-free patient. Imagine how you feel now . . . Imagine how you could feel.?
