My pain story begins in 1980, when I was hit as a pedestrian by a car going 40mph; I was 20 years old. The accident resulted in severe fractures to my left side including left tibia, fibula, fractured pelvis, tailbone, shoulder blade, crush injuries to my left thigh, and head injuries. I not only have severe back issues but pain issues throughout my body.

The severe back pain is a combination of two herniated discs and age-related arthritis. My body self-compensated and my left leg became one inch shorter after the accident. I put most of my weight on my right leg, to this day. I have been walking with a limp for about 40 years.
