Due to a herniated disc in her lower back, Jill was living in constant pain and leg numbness to the point that it was difficult for her to walk. After physical therapy and non-surgical injections did not relieve her pain, Jill decided to visit Dr. Craig Humphreys. Dr. Humphreys diagnosed the herniated disc and recommended surgery. In just 5 weeks following surgery, Jill was able to take a Caribbean cruise vacation. In the following months, Jill remained active, ultimately losing 47 pounds after surgery since she was able to exercise again pain free.

Sherry struggled with lower back pain and sciatica for over a decade. Some days the back pain was so severe she was unable to stand, walk, sleep, or even comfortably sit down. Sherry eventually decided to visit Dr. Craig Humphreys in Soldotna. Dr. Humphreys performed a Lumbar Fusion which helped Sherry get back to full activity, including cooking and traveling to New Zealand.
