Now I can put my own socks on and walk normally! My wife and I even joined a gym! 

Since 2010 I’ve had pain in my right hip including sciatic pain that radiated down my entire right side. This was from years of being an umpire and traveling. Last December after officiating a basketball game my pain was so intense my wife had to put my socks on.
My wife heard about Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy on the radio and encouraged me to give it a try. By the end of the first week, I felt better. I’ve been able to reduce my pain medication, which is huge. I’m able to work for longer periods of time, even squat to work with catchers. My wife is really excited that I listened to her suggestion to come to Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy.

I feel younger, and I can do more with friends!

Over the years I have struggled with sciatica in my legs, pain in my left hip, low back, neck, and shoulder. My back used to get so stiff I couldn’t move very easily, and I had difficulty sleeping.
Now, after going through treatment at OSST my pain is reduced, and I have more flexibility. I can do computer work without my neck stiffening up and I am able to spend more time in the garden without hurting my low back. I feel younger, and I can do more with friends! The staff at OSST are great people. They provide the tools you need to help yourself and then create a very encouraging atmosphere that motivates you to use them!

It’s worth the drive from Bellingham

I hated getting up in the morning. Standing up caused stabbing pain in my leg. My left foot was so numb, it made me walk with a limp. I was only able to do about 30% of my life. I could feel the improvement after the first few weeks of treatment at Olympic. Now I’m able to do life at 90%! It’s worth the drive from Bellingham. Treatment here has been a total game-changer.

I would’ve written a check for $100,000 if I had known I could get this much relief

I haven’t slept for more than 2 ½ to 3 hours at a time in 10 years because of the pain. I tried medication, massage therapy, chiropractic, physical therapy, and injections. I am a small business owner; my plan is to retire in five years. My concern was retiring with constant pain, being limited in what I can do, and not being able to enjoy time with my family.

The treatment is expensive, but honestly, I would’ve written a check for $100,000 if I had known I could get this much relief. My life is so much better. Now I can work a full day and sleep through the night! I rode a bike 20 miles and played softball with my kids.

In addition to the treatment, it’s an education. I’ve learned how to sit and move properly. I always get an explanation to my questions, not a short “move along” answer. The staff is exceptional, they’re all invested in the patient’s results.

What makes them special compared to other clinics I’ve been to is the all-inclusive care

For about a month I had neck and upper back pain that prevented me from being able to get off the couch or stand up. I had migraines so painful they made me sick. Ice, heat, and even pain medication didn’t get rid of the pain. As an athlete, I was so used to ignoring but my body finally said; I’ve had enough! My husband told me about Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy. Within the first month, my pain went from 9/10 to 3/10.

My quality of life has greatly improved! I have more energy to take care of household chores. I’m back to working in the yard. I can sit through a movie and church. I’m socializing with neighbors and entertaining. I’m back to walking 2-3 miles a day and lifting weights. I’ve learned to listen to my body and not over-do it. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Dr. Shelley did a very thorough examination including X-ray and MRI. They understand the steps you need to go through to heal and move forward with your life.

My limp is gone, I can sleep on my side, and my pain is reduced by 90%!

 I heard the ads on the radio and figured: what do I have to lose? My low back and hip pain were so bad I couldn’t walk without limping. I had to learn how to sleep on my back because laying on my side was so painful, I couldn’t fall asleep. I was only getting 3 or 4 hours of sleep a night. Now I’m back to 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night.

Without the help of Olympic Spine I wouldn’t have the quality of life I am now enjoying

About a year and a half ago I extruded the discs in my L5 and S1-S2 vertebrae, the pain was unbearable! I had shooting pain down my left leg through my glute and down my calf.

Dr. Shelley offered non-surgical spinal decompression therapy, the treatment plan was a big commitment and more involved than surgery but would benefit me more in the long run. I continue to come here a year and a half later because I feel how much of a difference it makes in my life and helping my back stay strong! I do believe that without the help of Olympic Spine I would not have the quality of life that I am now able to enjoy!

No more walker or wheelchair!

I was suffering from debilitating pain in my thigh, sciatic area, and my low back for over 8 months and it left me unable to walk without assistance. It was very frustrating because I had to use a wheelchair at church and a walker everywhere else. I tried various medications, physical therapy, and even chiropractors, without any relief.

It took me about 4 weeks of treatment to start to see long-lasting results. Now, after completing my treatment, I no longer have severe pain or a roller coaster of pain throughout my day. I no longer must use a walker or wheelchair at church. I walk freely on my own and can participate more fully in leading worship on Sundays. I feel like my energy is higher and my spirit is brighter. Sound Pain Solutions has given my life back to me, and I am deeply grateful.

Now I can go up and downstairs, ride my bike and I’m back to hiking!

For a year and a half, I had sharp pain in both my knees. Going up and downstairs was very painful, and I could no longer run. Before coming to Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy I worked with an Orthopedic doctor, a Spine Specialist, my General Medical doctor, a Physical Therapist, Massage Therapist and a Podiatrist.

I started to notice a difference within the first couple months of treatment. Now I can go up and downstairs, ride my bike and I’m back to hiking! My outlook on life also has improved. The realization that I’m not restricted due to a decline in a health is a big relief. The staff is very personable, friendly and caring. Every department knows how to work together as part of the team.

 Within two weeks of treatment, I felt better! 

About a year ago I was having chronic headaches, neck pain, and pain in my right shoulder, the pain was so bad that I was unable to sleep on my back or my right side. One doctor suggested shots to heal my nerve pain. I felt surgery was too invasive; I was at a dead end.

Then, I heard about Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy. Within two weeks of treatment, I felt better! My neck pain was less intense. I had better range of motion, and the radiating pain in my right shoulder was better. The staff at Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy is very friendly, helpful, and everybody is concerned about their patient’s wellbeing and health. I call it the “one-stop shop” that works on the whole body. I’m glad I invested the time and money; the results are worth it!

Fred T.

I feel supported; even from the other patients.

For eight years I had sciatic pain from a bulging disc, the pain was so intense I felt like I needed to go to the emergency room every day. I couldn’t sleep or work, it was very hard on my family.

I learned about Sound Pain Solutions from an ad on the radio. I started to feel better the first week and the sciatic pain was gone within the first two weeks. I’m able to vacuum without pain and change the laundry without sitting on the floor. Since I feel better, I’m excited to exercise more, get back to walking and swimming. I love the staff! They make me feel like family, and they care about how I feel. I got answers to my questions all the way through my treatment.

I am back up to running 20+ miles per week!

I was running 35 miles per week, then I broke down. The mid-back pain, hip, and low back pain brought my running to an abrupt stop. Now, two months later, I’m 75% better. I am back up to running 20+ miles per week and working my way up to 40 miles per week to qualify for the Boston Marathon. 

Steve L.

The change is phenomenal!

My foot and low back pain was so severe I didn’t know if I would make it into the office from the parking lot. I could only stand for a few minutes. Now, I can stand at least 30 minutes. My neck is stronger, and I don’t have headaches anymore. The commute from Enumclaw can take two hours, but it’s worth it to get my life back! It comes down to how bad you want to get better.

Laurie W.

I am more than 50% better and still improving.

My hip pain started after I lifted a log. When I got up in the morning, I couldn’t stand on my right leg without it giving out. I couldn’t even bend over to put my socks on. I couldn’t do work around the house, exercise, or play golf. I was living on ibuprofen, but it didn’t get better. I had two steroid injections, but the relief didn’t last. The pain just kept coming back. I knew the next step was surgery. Both of my brothers and my father had back surgeries and they all said, “don’t do it!”.

Now, I am so much better than I was. I am more than 50% better and still improving. Why wouldn’t you give this a chance?

My first thought was, just don’t close the clinic!

We were on vacation in Mexico. I was sitting crooked in a van and when it hit a bump, I felt a “zing” in my low back. Later that afternoon we went to the airport to fly home. On the flight back, we hit turbulence when I was standing; I couldn’t decide if I should throw up, scream or collapse on the floor. 

A friend of ours, who is a nurse, recommended I see Dr. Shelley. When they started closing businesses, my first thought was just don’t close the clinic down. At that point, I had three treatments and was finally starting to feel better. Now my pain is reduced by 65–70%. I was even able to walk 25 minutes today! I’m excited to have a plan to move forward and correct the cause of the problem so this doesn’t happen again!

This place is amazing! It has absolutely changed my life! 

I had what I called “back attacks” twice a year that would send me to the hospital and they sent me home with pain killers. In 2012 I had a “back attack” that kept me out of work for one month.

I came to Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy and I started to feel relief after my very first decompression treatment. I don’t think about my pain anymore. I can do laundry all day and not be wiped out. Before I would do one load and then I was down for the rest of the day. I’m thinking about doing yard work, I thought that I was done with that before my treatment at Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy.

The treatment I’ve had here at Olympic has been much more effective.

My pain started in 2015 when we moved to Washington. I was diagnosed with a slipped vertebrae, bulging disc, scoliosis and compression fractures. To avoid multiple low back surgeries I opted to get a spinal cord stimulator implant. Initially it helped, but progressively became less effective. The treatment I’ve had here at Olympic has been much more effective. So much so that I don’t use the stimulator anymore and plan to have it removed

With treatment this summer, I improved enough to not only be able to walk in the sand but actually walk out into the water

I had another personal win this summer with my neuropathy.  Before treatment, I wouldn’t go to the beach. The water was too painful to tolerate, and my balance was so bad I couldn’t walk in the sand. With treatment this summer, I improved enough to not only be able to walk in the sand but actually walk out into the water. I was even able to go on a waterslide with my daughter

The treatment I got at Olympic is more thorough than any other office I’ve been to

After my automobile accident, I had pain in my shoulders, mid-back, and low back. It made it hard to get in and out of my truck. Now my pain is reduced by over 60%. I can move again! The treatment I got at Olympic is more thorough than any other office I’ve been to. They have a more complete treatment approach and more advanced therapies. The staff is phenomenal and friendly. This place is awesome!
