Lives Healed
"I couldn’t turn my neck when I came in. I am able to turn my neck after the shot. I felt the pressure was uplifted."
"The injection has helped me a lot. When I first came here, I wasn’t able to do much for myself. the pain is less, I am able to walk, drive, do some house work, and do things I wasn’t able to do before coming here."
"I’ve been in pain for 20 years and until Dr. Puppala, I lived with it. After his injections, I am feeling better with every one. I have already sent a friend to him. I look forward to being pain free as I continue to see him."
"Before the shot, my pain was a “9.” Now after the injection, I feel numb from the waist down with no pain. I would like to follow up 2-3 days."
"This experience at Alliance Spine and Pain Centers was remarkable. I was in excruciating pain for the past 4 days and got recommended to visit this clinic. I was amazed. I came in with horrible pain and 30 minutes later, I am not limping anymore and feel no pain whatsoever. Dr. Puppala and his staff was very caring, helpful and informative with all of the procedures I would expect. I would recommend to anyone suffering with lower back or pinch nerve pain. I will definitely be back. I am so grateful for this clinic."
"Since I had the procedure, my lower back pain has improved at least by 90%. Mobility and quality of life is also much better."
"I would definitely recommend Dr. Puppala for ANYONE needing a trigger point injection. It was extremely painful for me to walk, sit, and stand, and Dr. Puppala worked his magic on me. I feel 100% better than before. Thank you Dr. Puppala!"
"My pain has decreased some from the 1st block and I am hopeful that it will be decreased, or hopefully eliminated, with this second one. I am impressed w/ the staff and the outstanding care provided and attention paid to the questions I had. It was a very good experience with this facility and staff."
"I came in with a 7-8 level pain in my neck. After injection it is a 0. Yippee!"
"I am so happy I got the stimulator implant. It works very well at controlling some of my pain. My only regret is that I didn’t get it sooner."
"I am so thankful for the nerve block injections C3-C7. My pain wasn’t felt after about 5 days after the injection. For the first time in a year no pain in my neck or left arm or shoulders. Wow! I couldn’t believe NO pain. Thank you Dr. Puppala for helping me to feel better. My prayer to be me again active with no pain in my neck has been answered."
"I would recommend this device to anyone. This is the first time in over 20 years that I am pain free. I have so much energy and am very active. I no longer have to take pain medication."
"So far, WHAT a difference! I’m in love! Only wish is we had done this sooner. I have great hopes that this is going to change my life!"
"I received the trial for the DCS two months prior and besides the pain from the implant I could tell the pulsing would help a good deal. The permanent DCS was put in on August 26 and aside from the pain of the surgery which has almost ceased over the last few days it is helping lots. I was standing and sitting bent over forward 24/7 and to the right 24/7 I. Now I am almost standing and sitting with my back almost all the way up to normal for the first time in 5 1/2 years other than the injections given which didn't last for long. I still sit to the right side and stand this way also, but just to be able to sit and stand out word is tremendous and I am so very thankful for this machine. Thank you again!"
"Having the trial stimulator was the best thing that Dr. Puppala has done for me. I would recommend it to anyone that is having lower back pain and tailbone pain. Without it I have been miserable and in pain. My pain medication hasn’t been helping to cease my pain. I will be hoping my insurance will approve for me to get the full-time simulator."
"I thought the idea of having the simulator put in for a year at which time I had leg and back pain so bad that I couldn't live my normal active life. I decided to hurts so bad that I had nothing left to do, so I tried it. Paying left the same day it was done. I highly suggest anyone in such pain, do it. It's wonderful to feel no pain."
"My experience was awesome. I could sit, stand, walk, work, and I would say it took away 90% of the pain."
"I am more mobile now that I have my stimulator than I was before it was done. I am hoping he gets better and better in time."
"Since coming to CPM, my pain management "journey "has been wonderful. I have spinal cord stimulator implant in 2013 but it was constantly shocking me when it was turned on. The experience was so bad that I literally had to stop using it. After speaking with Dr. Puppala about my situation, he told me about the Boston Scientific Stimulator and asked if I would want to try it. That was the best move I made and trying to control my pain. It deafly allows me to take less medication which makes my life much better!"
"I feel so much better by getting the shots and treatments given to me by the pain clinic here in Carrollton. I am capable of spending more time with my grandchildren, and I am enjoying my life so much more. I absolutely love the doctors here."
"My pain level was six before my procedure and within five minutes afterwards it was down to a four, and upon leaving it was down to a two. Great deal of relief!"
