Patient Testimonials

I was in excruciating pain for two years. I went to a “Pain Management Doctor” who gave me three steroid shots in my back which didn’t help. I saw an ad in the newspaper for spinal decompression at Arizona Pain and Wellness. After my complimentary consultation the doctor recommended spinal decompression on the DRX9000. I got relief after one week of treatment. It gets better every time. I am now able to do the things that I have missed over the last 2 years. It works, it helped me.

When I started this program, I had burning, stabbing pain down my right leg and numbness and tingling in my foot. I tried chiropractic and physical therapy with only minimal relief. Sometimes the physical therapy actually made it worse. After beginning the spinal decompression treatments at Arizona Pain and Wellness the pain is now gone. My back was always sore and stiff. Now it feels much, much better. Overall, this program worked wonders for me and I hope it will for everybody.

I came to Arizona Pain and Wellness when I was at the end of my rope. I have had physical therapy, epidurals and cortisone shots for neck and shoulder pain in the past, but the pain always came back, along with daily headaches. X-rays showed that I had Degenerative Disc Disorder, bulging discs and stenosis in my neck. Not wanting surgery, I explored other options and found Arizona Pain and Wellness. After just a few Spinal Decompression treatments, I felt much better. After 17 sessions, I feel like a new person!

My back used to hurt all day, everyday. That’s when I saw an ad for spinal decompression and deep tissue laser therapy at Arizona Pain and Wellness. After my second treatment, I could get out of bed in the morning with no pain. 3 weeks later I am pain-free! Thank each and every one at Arizona Pain and Wellness for making my life better.

I came to Arizona Pain and Wellness for my back pain and it sure has helped. This has been one of the best experiences I have had. Again, thanks for everything.
~ Wanda T., Mesa, AZ


Since 1986 I have suffered with neck and back problems. I’ve tried every pain and muscle relaxer and pain pill on the market. Surgery was an option but the odds weren’t in my favor. I was in daily physiotherapy for six months. I have tried overhead traction, neck collar, pain management, yoga, chiropractic, massage and acupuncture. The day I walked into Arizona Pain and Wellness, my pain was 9-10. I was ready to go back to Canada for surgery. Since Day One, the Doctor and his staff have been excellent. They have put me back on my feet to recovery. I can golf and dance again! My pain level is now a “2”. Thank you so much!

On my first visit, I pretty much needed to be carried in by two people. I am a grown man and I actually had to use a walker just to get around because the pain was so bad. The pain I felt was indescribable. An MRI showed an L5/S1 disc herniation. I had the same thing 2 years back and it took over a year to fully recover. My first visit of spinal decompression was very painful and felt no relief. The 2nd visit gave me much relief and by the end of the first week, I could walk without help. I looked forward to each day because I knew I would feel better each time. The Doctor knew just what to do to help me. I was so happy that the visits were so relaxing and more relief from the pain. I have never been to any Doctor of any kind that really cared this much. Instead of it taking a year to heal this time, I was back 100% within 2 months. Thanks guys!

I was diagnosed with a pinched nerve in my back, which was causing severe pain in my buttock and leg. I love to bowl but my bowling score has been very poor since my back started hurting. I was given a number of cortisone shots but I was still having pain. When I heard about Arizona Pain and Wellness, I felt they might help me. After my third treatment of Spinal Decompression, I went bowling and bowled 30 points above my average which greatly impressed my Team. I definitely feel that Decompression Treatments are improving my body’s mobility and strength, as well as relieving the pain that I have been experiencing for over a year!

After experiencing excruciating pain from a work-related injury, I knew I needed an immediate solution. I found it hard to walk, stand, sit or even lie down. I even had to take an absence of leave from my job at the restaurant due to my pain. My pain level was a 10, on a scale of 1-10. After learning that I had a herniated disc at L4-L5, along with spinal stenosis, I was scared that I would be facing surgery. I had tried everything. Then I was referred to Arizona Pain and Wellness by my chiropractor. After 4 weeks, my pain was completely gone! Thank you for allowing me to get my life back. I am excited to be able to return to work after not having been able to work the past 6 months because of the pain. I would absolutely recommend Arizona Pain and Wellness to anybody!

I came to Arizona Pain and Wellness with severe back pain and sciatica. The pain in my low back was excruciating. My pain level was a “12”, on a scale of 1 to 10. I had pain radiating down my right leg for the last 2 months. I tried acupuncture, pain meds and back surgery. I was taking 6 Tylenol a day. My concern when I came to Arizona Pain and Wellness was, will this work for me? I’ll admit I was apprehensive because of a bad experience in the past. But after starting Spinal Decompression treatments, I knew I had made the right decision in coming here. My pain level has gone from “12” to “0”! I am able to walk straighter, sleep better and do housework without pain. Dr. Self and the entire staff are wonderful, caring people. It is so comforting to be able to be pain-free without the use of medication.

As an owner of a housekeeping business, I came to Arizona Pain and Wellness due to constant pain in my low back, with pain radiating down to my legs. My pain was a “10” on a scale of 1 to 10. I have been suffering with this pain, on and off, since January of 2011. I have tried Pain Meds, taking 1-2 every 6 hours. I wondered if I would ever be pain-free. After first coming to Arizona Pain and Wellness, I was very pleased with how quick I was able to start treatment. Feeling results within a few days was amazing. I can enjoy my days being pain-free. I’m able to work, still!! My kids really appreciate me being able to play with them and not be restricted or limited to activities. I would highly recommend Arizona Pain and Wellness non-surgical, medication-free, painless treatment that has great results. Within a matter of a few days I was able to stop my pain medication and since then not have to take one! Treatment is painless and actually relaxing. I really enjoyed it. Most of all no recovery needed.

Lower back, shoulder and arm pain brought me to Arizona Pain & Wellness. It felt like electrical pain radiating down my arms. My pain was at a “10” and I also had lots of numbness. I have had this pain for 20 years and only took pain meds for it, which made me sick. When I came to Arizona Pain and Wellness I wondered, will this work? Will they be able to lessen my pain? I’m amazed at how hard Dr. Self has worked on me and didn’t release me from care until he was satisfied with my results. I am now able to sleep at night. I can carry my purse on my shoulders without pain. My anxiety is gone. I would definitely recommend Arizona Pain and Wellness to anyone who suffers any type of back or shoulder pain. What’s so great is that there is no surgery involved and at my age of 67, surgery is the last thing I wanted to do. I had amazing results. On a scale of 1-10, I would rate my pain a “1”. The treatment was painless and most important, it helped me! No cutting, no recovery; it works.

After 2 back surgeries in 2000, I had severe pain and I was informed no further surgeries would help. I had extreme pain while standing and walking. The pain was constant and was an 8-10 on a scale of 1 to 10. An Orthopedic test indicated that there was nothing more that could be done. Other than back surgery, I tried epidurals, steroid shots and pain meds. My experience at Arizona Pain and Wellness was outstanding. Everyone was friendly and very efficient. The Consultation was very informative. Dr. Self explained the procedure and felt he could reduce my pain level from “8” to “3”. The goal has been met. Hooray! It has been an amazing experience. I can walk better, am reduced to a level “3” pain while standing, have less stress and have a better outlook on life. We were informed it would be about 6 weeks and that has been the time to be in an almost pain-free status.

~ Additional note from Clifford’s wife.. The concern and care for the spouse was appreciated very much. It was well worth the time and expense. (Mrs. Lee S.)

I had a herniated disc at L3 and L5, according to my MRI. My right side was in excruciating pain from my disc pushing on my sciatic nerve. My foot was numb and tingly all the time. I was in the E.R. every weekend. I was taking all kinds of pain pills, was in a wheelchair for 2 months and used a walker for 1 month. I was three days from having back surgery when I saw an ad in the newspaper. I came down to the office and the Doctors explained everything. Dr. Brian Self and Dr. Bruce Resnick put me on the Decompression Table and only 6 weeks later my back and leg feel wonderful. No more pain pills for me. I cannot say enough about those two Doctors! I recommend them to anyone with back or neck pain.
