WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY...

NEW HOPE SPINE INSTITUTE IS PRIVILEDGED TO HAVE PROVIDED RELIEF TO PATIENTS WITH A WIDE VARIETY OF DISORDERS.  WE THANK ALL OF OUR PATIENTS AND HAVE PROVIDED A SMALL SAMPLE OF WHAT SOME PATIENTS HAVE EXPERIENCED.



AUDREY (AGE 66) - BULGING, DEGENERATIVE DISC

"I have been diagnosed with "severe" degenerative disc disease with stenosis and bulging at multiple levels, in my neck and back.  I have been in pain and have suffered for many years, have had both hips replaced, and have had surgery in my right carpal tunnel and right knee.  I have further suffered with peripheral neuropathies in my hands and feet.  Despite trying numerous treatments by multiple doctors, chronic pain has limited my life and activities.  Since strting treatment with Dr. Banta and his staff at New Hope Spine Institute, doing the decompression and the laser and more...what a difference in the way I feel!  I highly recommend Dr. Banta and his wonderful staff, because they really care about you and work very hard to get you better."


ELDON (AGE 87) - ARTHRITIS, PARALYSIS

"I am a retured Navy pilot and in 1975, I had a near-death auto accident leaving me with no vital signs.  Although I survived, I was left with un-repairable brain damage causing left side paralysis mostly in my hand and lower back.  I had great Stanford trained Drs, who said there was nothing more anyone could do.  I have developed tremendous arthritis in both areas.  My left hand and thumb are almost unusable.  I have total life care and the VA, and I've gone through acupuncture, 2 chiropractors, stretching, ointments, sprays, and nothing has helped the arthritis or paralysis.  All along, I am being told there is nothing that can be done.  They want to give me steroids, but I don't want to take them.  I saw the ad for New Hope, and the new laser treatment, and thought it's worth a try.  I can't believe what they have done for me.  I am so thankful.  My back started immediately to respond, and by my 5th treatment, my hand is responding.  I want to bring them a gift, because after over 30 years, for the first time my hand is starting to seriously respond, and I am so delighted about that."


MANUEL (AGE 53) - KNEE PAIN

"After 2 months of pain and swelling from torn cartilage in my knee, it worsened during a trip to Spain, to the point that I became unable to walk, golf or dance.  I was dependent on pills to get any relief and was likely going to have to have surgery.  When I arrived in the desert, I discovered Dr. Banta's ad in the paper.  The staff has been so helpful and I highly recommend the amazing laser treatment.  I have improved tremendously, to the point where I have returned to golfing, dancing and walking without pain."


JILL (AGE 55) - BACK PAIN

"A year and a half ago, I fell down the stairs in my home, and as a result, a bunch of my vertebrae have been swollen.  I tried everything from acupuncture to pain management.  When I saw the ad, I thought this is my last hope.  When I came to New Hope Spine Institute, I could not move or turn over in bed at night, and now I have no pain at night.  My long term goal is to walk farther without pain and we are getting there.  This clinic has great people, very friendly and completely understanding of pain, and they want to make you 100% better.  The treatment I enjoy the most is the deep tissue massage that gets rid of the spasms in my back.  I have also benefited greatly from the laser treatments and the ATM treatment to strengthen my core muscles."


HEATHER (AGE 63) - ANKLE PAIN, PLANTAR FASCIITIS

"About 5 years ago, I badly sprained my ankle, and have had chronic foot and ankle pain to varying degrees ever since.  Even before getting my MRI, Dr. Banta diagnosed that I had fractured the ankle, partially tore a ligament, and developed arthritic spurs in the ankle and heel, contributing to my ankle pain and plantar fasciitis.  I am a skeptic by nature, but the MRI and the treatments confirmed it all.  After just one session of treatment, my plantar fasciitis that had set in after my injury was gone!  Thank you Dr. Banta!"


CHARLES (AGE 80) - BACK PAIN

"I ruined my back at work.  The problem is, I was ok until I turned 80, and then developed a tremendous pain in my spine.  I have tried acupuncture and decompression in the past.  My advice to people is to go from 79 straight to 90 (ha ha).  Since I have been coming to New Hope and doing the laser treatments, it is helping.  I was walking bent over and I am walking straighter now with much less pain.  I am on the way to a more normal life again, and I am glad I found New Hope Spine Institute."


MARJORIE (AGE 90) - SPINAL COMPRESSION FRACTURES

"I am over 90 years old and a year ago I broke my back and ended up with 3 compression fractures in my spine.  I have always been an active person and all of a sudden I can't walk without stopping every few steps to rest.  I couldn't even walk half a block to my clubhouse.  I tried everything.  4 chiropractors, Tai Chi, and acupuncture and have just felt hopeless.  When I saw the ad, I was willing to try something new and it is working.  I am so happy.  It is like I am living again.  Today, after my treatment, I am going to two dances, the 'Rag Timers' dance and our regular ballroom dancing.  I saw pictures of how bad my spine looked before Dr. Banta's treatment, but I do not need to see pictures to know he has helped me.  I can feel it!"
