"When I first came to IPPMC, I was unable to sit for greater than 10 minutes. My first love was training horses and showing horses. I had to discontinue both of these because of my pain. After being treated at IPPMC, I received diagnosis and treatment and now I am able to ride my horse and train and show again. I appreciate everything that IPPMC has done."
"I give IPPMC credit for listening to my complaint. My complaints were ignored at other facilities due to the unusual and difficult presentation. I have developed postherpetic neuralgia of my trigeminal nerve including the optic portion. We are continuing to work on my pain. Thank you for your help."
"I have a diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and chronic lower back pain. I have been to other pain clinics and my treatments have included spinal cord stimulator placement. They wanted to place a Baclofen pump in me. I increased my use of pain medication. I was eventually referred to IPPMC for management of my pain. I have been living with these pain issues for 30 years. I am currently 80% improved after my conservative treatments at IPPMC. I am participating in pool therapy three times per week. I can walk better and function better. I am happy."
"I have been dealing with chronic chest pain after undergoing a CABG for cardiovascular disease. I was unable to sleep through the night and may be tired all day and it affected me at work where I work as a mechanic. I can say after a brief treatment at IPPMC, I have 100% improvement of my chest pain after three years and I have also have a 100% improvement at this time of my back and knees."
"In regards to IPPMC Chronic Pain Program: Over the last 25 years I have been dealing with chronic pain and have been seen at practically every pain clinic in Minnesota. I want to express my satisfaction with IPPMC and their Chronic Pain Program. This program covered all the bases and it has prevented me from having neck and back surgery. I have also been able to reduce my opioid use and I have a clearer head. The team is friendly and very modern."
"I have had left groin and testicle pain for eight years that has been getting worse over the last year to the point where I was almost unbearable. I was offered surgery to remove my left testicle in order to help with my pain and that was not going to happen. I was referred to IPPMC and after two treatments I have 70% improvement of my groin pain and my back pain. It has done wonders."
"I have had foot pain off and on for years which I have had neuroma surgically removed. I had difficulty walking because of constant foot pain with pressure. I was able to receive conservative treatment at IPPMC for my feet and currently have 100% improvement of my foot pain. It is nice to know that there is further treatment options for this pain that has affected my function."
"I have had back problems since I was 15 years old, which came on periodically. I have been seen by chiropractors and neurosurgeons. After a number of years of dealing with this pain, I eventually was seen at IPPMC and on my first visit, I can say at this time I have 98% improvement of my lower back pain. I would recommend these guys."
"My biggest problem was my lower back pain and left hip for about a year. I had laminectomy years ago for my lower back due to a pinched nerve. It affected my ability to climb ladders, sit in a car or sit for long periods of time. After receiving therapeutic treatment to my back and left leg, I am 90% improved and I have started a reconditioning program at IPPMC."
"You done good! I came in here, I could barely walk and today I’m functioning well. I’m no longer using my canes and my canes are now in my closet"
