Thu, Jan 23 10:49am · Arachnoiditis: Trying to find a specialist in Spine Health

Hello, Happy Aqua Therapy worked for you. For me he pressure walking against the water put too much pressure on my spine. I had PT after my fusion 2016 I was sent to Kessler Institute where Superman Steves Reeves was. They were so good. They are in West Orange and Chatham. NJ. I was there for 3 weeks. Dr. Tennant told me that no more can be done. He emailed information to give to my Pain Management Dr..medications I should be on. He is also an Anesthesiologist, It is depressing being told "nothing more can be done for me" Why was I not told of the 90% of the true meaning of Failed back Syndrome? When the Dr's told me my Diag. They closed the door. If I knew I would not have gone on and on and on trying to find Drs to find out what was wrong me and I was getting worse. No more surgeries, Ablations, nerve blocks and more. The trust I had in their decisions changed my life. I find it disparaging that no one is interested in the in AA and how to make patients aware than, make a decision. I think about that a lot,For me, I can't find any answers? Question, Patients with AA have they seen a change in brain activity. I do't know how to word it. Thank You Joan, my best to you also

In reply to Bforman, I no longer see or look for Neurosurgeons, spine surgeons. The more is done chances of getting worse. There is a Dr. In Calif. Dr. Forrest Tennant. Interest includes AA, he started a Foundation. Some of us are in touch with him. If you live near the NJ areas I have a very Well know Pain Management/Anesthesiologist. Anesthesiologist is a big plus in care. His name is Doctor S. Datta, Pain Management, Hackensack NJ. His practice also includes CancerCare, MS and more. Easy to find him on the Internet. Also can find him, Dr. S, Datta Naltrexone. non-opiate pain medication. He put me on it starting on a very low liquid dose given in an eye dropper. I just started. I hope I can help at least a little for all of you in pain.

I have A.A. curious what is PEMF?

Hi don, I'm sorry it took me so long to respond! I hope I you waited on your procedure? May I suggest to wait until you hear from Tennant. I have learned the hard way jumping to have procedures done do to pain. What state are you in to look up Dr. Pawluck so I can look him up. I know you went to the dr. but did you have the procedure or waited?

Hi again, I just researched PEMF. It sounds great. I would even like to try it!! My question, are there truly no side effects? Does it help nerve damage, scaring around the nerves? Why has this not been recommended by P.M. drs or others? I don't understand it?

I can not find a doctor who will read any of Doctor Tennant Medical information especially the Harmone information for pain.

I'm sorry, I called it a procedure. Did you mean he has never treated anyone with AA? If thats right can you wait for Dr. Tennant to email you or there are phone numbers to call him. There is no such thing as "curing the disease" other wise people with AA there will be a line at the door. If he said "cure" may I suggest "run". Please, listen to your dr. at Mayo, PLEASE. All this stuff is just making people rich or trying to. It's only a suggestion. It's up to you.
