Hysen sought care in our office after he was involved in a serious car accident. He lost considerable amounts of function, work time, and daily motivation as a result of his spinal injuries and resulting pain. As an example, upon examination it was found that he couldn't sleep for more than 2 hours, eat food without pain, tie his shoes, put on a coat, drive his car, sit for longer than 10 minutes, or do the everyday things that many people take for granted because of his excruciating pain. The worst part for Hysen was that he couldn't play with his kids or be the husband that his wife had married. His world was turned upside down as a result of the accident and the pain levels were affecting the relationships that he had with the people that he cared most about. Hysen was very depressed by his situation and how it was robbing him of the most enjoyable parts of his life. He had a hard time thinking that he would ever feel like himself again or be the employee, father, and husband that he knew he was capable of. Hysen began a structural rehabilitation program at our office and literally in his words, "became a new man". Upon completion of the program he discussed with me that he no longer feels like he is an "80 year old man", but how he feels better now than he did before they accident. Hysen is a great example of how the specific care and programs in our office can not only add more years to your life, but more life to your years. Watching Hysen heal and being a part of the process was nothing short of inspiring. Now he is truly able to live life on his terms without physical limitations. I'm really proud of Hysen for that changes that he has made in his health and the new direction that his life can now take.
