Since 2004, John Boshart has been living with severe back pain due to two fused vertebrae, bulging discs, and a herniated disc in his spine. Through specialized treatments at CentraState Medical Center, John is taking steps to get back to a life without pain.
A dedicated husband and father, John says his pain had grown progressively worse in the past few years. Pressure on John’s spinal cord from the two fused vertebrae created pain that started in his back and continued up to his neck. He even had trouble holding his head up at times. After undergoing spinal decompression surgery and receiving pain medicine injections, John felt relief for a short time. Unfortunately, the pain returned again after a few months.
