After three previous surgeries, Connie Graham was referred to Comprehensive Pain and Rehabilitation by her doctor to see if she was an eligible candidate to participate in a clinical trial for back pain sufferers.
Spending most of her life on her feet working in a school cafeteria had exacerbated the problem to the point that Graham was forced to retire. “I had no life. I would come home from work and go straight to bed. And I knew I didn’t want to medicate myself to be able to function.”
Graham was accepted into the clinical trial at Comprehensive Pain and Rehabilitation and began to see significant improvement. In 2012, Dr. Hapworth recommended a spinal stimulation device for Graham.
“The stimulator has worked great in relieving the back pain. Now I’m able to get in the floor and play with my 8-month-old grandson. That’s something I would never have been able to do before.”
Graham said the entire team of professionals at Comprehensive Pain and Rehabilitation is top notch. “Every time I leave an appointment, I am blown away by this fantastic group. They handle everything in a timely and thorough manner. They are all so friendly. Dr. Hapworth takes great care of his patients and makes you feel so comfortable. I’ve made such a personal connection here that these people are almost like family to me.”
Graham said she feels blessed to have been chosen to receive treatment from Comprehensive Pain and Rehabilitation. “Thank God they chose me for the clinical trial. I’m the luckiest person in the county. And if they can fix me, they can fix anybody. They gave me back my life.”
