"I was in a pretty bad state before coming to NS2, but Dr. Moriarity did a great job. It was an absolutely wonderful experience and I haven’t had any back pain since surgery!"
Brent Gray had been experiencing severe pain running down his leg for months. He went to a local hospital and, after getting an MRI done and seeing nothing, the doctors sent him to physical therapy to see if that would help the pain. After two months of therapy and no results, Brent had had enough. He had heard of NS2, and decided to see if that would be a better option. In his first appointment at NS2, a Friday, Brent met with Dr. Wood to see what was going on with his leg. Five minutes into the visit, Dr. Wood knew what it was--a herniated disc. After the consultation with Dr. Wood, he had his surgery on the following Tuesday. When he woke up, he was pain free and able to go back to work just a week later. If Brent has one regret, it’s that he didn’t come to NS2 earlier. Brent recommends to his friends with back issues to go to NS2. The sooner the better!
Hailey Brohaugh is a 20-year-old soccer player at Auburn University. As an athlete at AU, every day consists of running, drills, and trying to be the best she can be. She started having problems with her leg in late high school. Shooting pain and the inability to flex her calf muscle made daily activities such as walking and running nearly impossible to do. After talking to a family friend, Hailey decided to turn to NewSouth NeuroSpine to see if they could figure out the problem. At her first appointment, her doctor, Dr. Moriarity stayed after all the other employees had left and explained everything about the process. Because she was so young, he and the other doctors made sure to look at every possible non surgical treatment before making a decision to go into surgery. They made her feel comfortable and at home--exactly as a surgery patient should feel! After the surgery, Hailey’s life got so much better. She was able to do everyday activities once again, and she no longer woke up with shooting pains. She has her full range of motion back, she can train at a highly competitive level, and runs miles without any problems. It’s safe to say Hailey’s life was changed for the better.
