"I was in so much pain before I came to IPPMC that I was very depressed. Everything that IPPMC has done for me has helped. I am now able to function. The staff has been friendly and helpful. Physical therapy has been very professional. Allen has been doing myofascial release and knew exactly where to treat and what muscles to treat. I am not good with words but I wanted to express my gratitude for the care at IPPMC. Keep up the good work."
“I’ve been dealing with headaches, neck pain and back pain for over a year. I was referred to IPPMC by my primary care physician.” This is the first time I have actually gotten help for my pain and headaches. The people at IPPMC helped me a lot. The staff was nice to me and they did not push me too much because that would have aggravated my symptoms. I rarely ever have pain now and am a lot better. Thank you for all your help.”
“Tell everyone from the front desk to the back that I feel absolutely wonderful! I feel like I’m 30 years old, and I’m 62! Excellent service, everyone took over and took very good care of me! Appreciate it!” Very sweet!!!!"
"Thank you, Dr. Kowalkowski. You have accomplished more in my initial visit and subsequent visits than the other pain clinic did in over a year."
“I was having a lot of pain. I am 79 years old and I am dealing with a lot of neck and knee pain and I had quite a bit of pain before coming to IPPMC. I had trouble walking because of the pain. I came to IPPMC for treatment. I am feeling 100% better. It has helped me with my walking and I am currently involved in rehabilitation at IPPMC. The doctor did a good job.”

"Get everybody that was involved today and give them a big hug”. I was feeling terrible this morning and feels like a million bucks now.
“I was running 8/10 pain over the last five years. Three and a half years ago I underwent a spinal decompression and last April I underwent a three level lumbar fusion due to progressive back pain. I continued to experience increased pain despite these two surgeries. I was unable to walk, I had no social life, no sex life, it was rough. There was no much I could do because of my pain. I was referred by my primary care to IPPMC due to my pain and I underwent a permanent placement of a spinal cord stimulator. Since then I am back to working in my shop, I have cut my pain medications in half and life is good and a lot better than what it was. I am very happy with my decision and so is my wife.”
“I would like to give everybody that was involved in my care today a big hug. I was feeling terrible this morning and did not feel like I would be able to take care of my clients at work. You were able to accommodate me and treatment me today. I feel like a million bucks. I am very grateful for everybody at IPPMC and how they were able to help me. Thanks for the great care.”
“I’ve been a mechanic for 25 years. My pain was effecting every aspect of my life including walking, driving a car, working, riding in a car and even sleeping. I’m overly grateful at this time for my treatments that I can’t express it any other way than I am overwhelmed with happiness with how I am feeling at this time and how my life is going. I have never experienced this type of pain relief ever. I haven’t felt this way in 20 years and that’s no bullshit.”
“I was in a car accident in 2001 in which I fractured my neck and back. I had to wear a brace for three months. I have been dealing with pain since 2001. I lost my ability to walk far distances, driving a car for more than an hour, any type of physical activity effected me. In 2011 I had a motorcycle accident and broke my neck and upper back. I started a rehab program and I was diagnosed with hip dysplasia. I was referred to a different pain clinic and all they did was inject me with multiple steroids. I felt like a pin cushion without relief. They ultimately labeled me as only wanting pain medications despite all they were offering is multiple injections. I explained that pain medications make me sick and that I didn’t want pain medications and wanted pain relief. She was told that after multiple procedures that there was nothing else they could do. They basically left me in pain. Ultimately I was referred to IPPMC. IPPMC really seemed to focus on my pain. They tied in mental health into this. All the doctors work as a team. I felt like I wasn’t coming in being labeled or judged. I feel IPPMC has addressed my pain rather than blew me off.”
"I was diagnosed with melanoma of my right calf in 2013. Due to the surgery I developed severe neurological pain in the right calf along with scar tissue. I was unable to walk on my right foot for a few months due to the pain and healing. I was in physical therapy for six months. The only solution I was given was pain medication for the pain which I did not want to take. I decided not to take any pain medication. My doctor said there was no other solution other than medication that I refused. I looked up treatment options on my own and I found IPPMC and decided to give them a try. After my treatments at IPPMC I am close to 100% back to my normal activity. Even the simple things in life like wearing my boots are not a major task, in winter that is huge! I am no longer waking up nightly because of pain. I can sleep and function which is huge to me. I can’t say enough good things about IPPMCs team”. Thank you!"
