"I was seen in a pain clinic in St. Cloud approximately seven years ago in which they did not follow through with my care. I have been fighting my pain ever since. I was referred to IPPMC from a friend and previous patient of IPPMC. After one or two visits I do not have any more pain. Thank you very much. I can continue musky fishing."
"It was taking me up to 3-4 hours in the morning to be able to function due to my neck pain which was a result of a history of multiple cervical fusions. I was to the point where it was affecting my mood and overall life. After being evaluated at IPPMC and eventually treated, after a cervical radiofrequency denervation, I can say that I can get up in the morning and move. My neck pain is 98% improved and I feel much better. "
"I was extremely apprehensive when I first presented to IPPMC. Having gone to a previous pain clinic in the area, I had a bad experience with their clinic. Their emphasis was treating with narcotic prescriptions after I had disclosed the fact that I was addicted to opioids. Their staff is extremely hard working, dedicated, friendly and they are out to serve the customer. I trust everyone on staff. The team at IPPMC is out for the best interest of the patient. I would recommend this clinic to anyone."
"I have been running since high school in which I have never had an injury. At age 22, I started running marathons and have completed 16 marathons. I encountered my first injury two months ago and I could not walk. I was having a hard time walking and coping with my injury since I have been an athlete my whole life. Previous to coming in, I had an extensive workup including MRIs and X-rays which I was told that everything was normal, but yet I was still in so much pain I could not function. I was told to ice and I would be fine but I wasn't. I found IPPMC and they told me what to do and I followed their treatment plan and I am up and running. I ran six miles yesterday for the first time pain free in a few months. "
"I would like to thank Dr. K and IPPMC for their compassion and excellent care. I have been treating with them for over four years. "
"I have had ten years of bad lower back pain. I’ve undergone two fusions that did not help my back pain. I ultimately had more pain after my back surgeries. I could not work for five years. I returned back to work with using a lot of pain killers. My care for my back included more and more narcotics which did not help. After being treated at IPPMC I feel like a new man. Most importantly, there is no pain. I do not have that constant nagging pain in my lower back and that’s perfect. I am happy I do not have to take anymore hardcore narcotics because my treatment has worked a lot better."
"I have been going on with seven years of kidney issues and a total of 13 surgeries including multiple stenting and underwent a right flank incision three times, a failed laser incision with balloon dilation which resulted in progressive right flank pain, there was a question of nerve entrapment. I have four kids at home and I could not spend all my days going to the doctor. The pain caused me to be tired, crabby and not wanting to interact with my family. My urologist sent me to IPPMC. I am amazed how the treatment cured my pain at the current time, it has really worked."
"I have had upper bridge pain for over 25 years that has been resistant to treatments. I have seen multiple specialists. On my first visit with Dr. Kowalkowski I received treatment and this has been the first time in 25 years that I have not had mouth pain. Thank you for your help."
"I have improved with the treatments I have received from the doctors. I enjoy the convenience of the building. The staff is wonderful. I was very skeptical when I first came, and that is improved."
"I had left facial pain since I was nine years old. I had left sided headaches and migraines that were terrible. I couldn't hold down a job. I ended up having to go on social security disability because of the pain. My doctor sent me to IPPMC to help with my pain. I had seen over fifteen doctors for my pain, including being seen at the Mayo Clinic for my symptoms and no one could help me. After being evaluated I was treated on my first visit with Dr. K. The day after my treatment I have not had a headache since. I can't believe it, it's a miracle! I am so thankful. I have never had such a wonderful experience in my whole life."
"I came into IPPMC for chronic shoulder pain, back pain and lower extremity pain. On my first evaluation, Dr. Kowalkowski performed a comprehensive physical examination and requested I undergo further workup for my lower extremity symptoms. I discovered I had 100% occlusion of my bilateral femoral arteries and needed surgery. I did receive treatment for my bilateral shoulder pain that day. I returned almost one year later to have my shoulders retreated since the previous treatment had provided significant relief. I wanted to say thank you for your thoroughness in finding the occlusions in my lower extremities. I came for pain management and received much more."
