“Before coming to IPPMC I was in a chronic pain state. My pain was never better than a 7 level, even with medication. It affected my social life, my sex life, and work. I spent more time at home because of the pain. I was referred to IPPMC by my primary care doctor. I am feeling a whole lot better, feeling 80% better. I have nothing but good things to say about the clinic and personnel, the physical therapy team is also great. I would recommend IPPMC to my friends and family with pain.”
“IPPMC is a great place to go for care. Dr. K is a very good doctor and I recommend patients with sports injuries or pain to consider seeing Dr. K and the great staff at IPPMC. They have helped me out a great deal. The people at IPPMC have been very nice and are always there to answer my questions and help me through all their different departments. Thank you.”
“I’ve been dealing with pain for 14 years. The pain was intolerable to the point where I became inactive, I gained weight and my pain increased, it effected my mood, my behavior and my social life. Once making a decision to do something about it I did my research and found Dr. K and IPPMC. After speaking with my primary, I received a referral and met the team at IPPMC. In this journey to recover with my pain taking years, I have not felt this good in 14 years. I am 38 going back to 16. Living without pain has freed my mind to do other things and pursue my interest. Thank you IPPMC.”
“Previous to coming to IPPMC I was seen by multiple doctors for my back pain in which they did not address my issues. My PCP suggested IPPMC. After my first visit I was treated and I felt really good. After a few modifications to my treatment I am 99% improved and we are still working on the last 1%. The staff has been nice and accommodating. I have recommended IPPMC to people I know with pain.”
“ I have been working with the physical therapy department at IPPMC with all the different therapists. I cannot say how friendly, how helpful, concerned and interested they have been in my care. They are an excellent team and are able to progress my therapies without causing me to take steps backward in my progress. Allen with myofascial work does an amazing job. I would highly recommend the physical therapy staff at IPPMC and my husband would validate that.”
“I came to the IPPMC program in St. Cloud approximately seven months ago. At that time I felt like a dog drug off the street looking for help. I was on heroin and had severe back pain. Today I will make it short and sweet……..this summer I met with my family of seven kids and my wife. They were looking at preparing my funeral due to my state of being. Today, I feel like a 40-year-old man and I am very grateful I was able to find the team at IPPMC and will always be grateful to the doctors and staff. They have been honest with me and the therapies I have received. I cannot say how much they have benefited my quality of life.”
“I feel like I came to IPPMC searching for answers when no one believed that I had chronic pain. Dr. K performed a comprehensive examination on my first visit. After having this pain for ten years I received 50% reduction in my pain. I also got off my Percocet, Zofran and Prilosec in which I have been on narcotics for ten years. I can now ride in a car upright versus laying down. I could not drive to the cities myself due to the pain and being off narcotics I am more in control of my driving. There is a great team of people to work with at IPPMC.”
“On June 15, 1962 while in the air force, while in service in Vietnam, in the middle of the night I injured my lower back, next thing I knew it was being medevac’d. I’ve had back pain since that time, two spine surgeries and multiple injections over the years. I had some slight reduction of pain but continued to have pain. My doctors have been trying to fix my pain with pills over the past 51 years. I came to IPPMC. After my first visit and treatment my pain is 98% gone for the first time in many years. This is the first time I’ve been able to walk without referred hip pain for most of my life and doing good.”
"I'm a 35-year-old male who has severe lower back pain and severe peripheral neuropathy. It was hard for me to walk, stand or sit due to the nerve pain. I have tried multiple treatments before coming to IPPMC. My experience at IPPMC has been wonderful. I had a spinal cord stimulator placed for my back and leg pain. It has reduced my pain by at least 80%. I would recommend IPPMC to anyone."
"I have had severe lower back pain since I was in my 30s. I am not 58 and I was referred by my medical doctor to be treated by Dr. K at IPPMC. After my first visit I had a year of pain relief. Due to my busy job I was not exercising and reaggravated my back and once again returned to be treated by Dr. K. I was once again treated and I can say within eight hours once again my pain was gone. I felt great and woke up in the morning pain free. I would recommended Dr. K to anybody, he is very professional, he is a nice guy."
"I was in a lot of pain, my activities were to a point where I was not able to take a bath or do hardly anything including housework. After I had my permanent stimulator placed I was 100% improved. I am able to walk, take care of myself, clean my house and even went camping since the permanent placement. IPPMC was great in my preparation and placement of my stimulator."
