This is a commercial featuring Rick and The Spine Center at Valley Medical Center.

Rick was among the eighty percent of Americans who suffer from back pain.

"I couldn't sleep through the night. I blamed my mattress. My pillow. You just learn to live with it," Rick says.

But when he began experiencing numbness in his leg, Rick knew it was time to seek help. He went to Jason Thompson, MD, Orthopedic Medical Director of The Spine Center at Valley Medical Center.

"X-rays showed that Rick's vertebrae were markedly out of alignment and his nerves significantly crushed," says Dr. Thompson. "Without surgery, he ran the risk of irreversible damage."

Dr. Thompson helped shape the treatment model for The Spine Center at Valley Medical Center, which has been Five-Star rated for spinal surgery by HealthGrades® 2009 for four consecutive years.

Today Rick sleeps through the night, lives without pain and is back to doing the things he loves, including his greatest joy — being a dad.
