"I first came to Dr. Crespo for an evaluation in February. I have had off and on back pain for many years and would generally see a chiropractor for an adjustment which would take care of the pain after one to two adjustments. In September my back pain took a turn for the worse. My back pain that usually lasted a few days did not improve and my function and quality of life took a turn for the worse with it. I was a pretty highly active individual in cycling and even did racing in a discipline called cyclocross and riding my bike was no longer able to be comfortably done.
I am a Physician Assistant and ultimately had a colleague order an MRI for me as I suspected I might have some disc problems. Unfortunately, and in some ways fortunately, the MRI confirmed my suspicions. I spoke with a chiropractic colleague and he told me about VAX-D and recommended I meet with Dr. Crespo. I did not, and still do not, have any interest in pursuing surgical options due to my lack of faith in long term outcomes. After researching VAX-D a little I decided to meet Dr. Crespo.
When a colleague recommends another clinician to me that tells me that the doctor has the faith of his other doctors and I could tell right away that Dr. Crespo would be a good choice. Dr. Crespo explained the procedure and how it worked down to the level it would be treating and how the treatment could benefit patients like me.
After a couple weeks of treatment I could notice a change in how I felt. I began to regain function as my pain continued to abate. After a few months I began riding my bike again and also had the energy to begin being more active with my kids. The important thing I have understood from the start is that there is no cure for my ailment and though I have completed my initial course of treatment and will continue to seek supportive care for as long as I need to in order to maintain the quality of life that I have been given as a result of my treatment with Dr. Crespo.
I recommend without reservation to any patient or friend that I come across that has complaints of back or neck pain that they seek out a consultation with Dr. Crespo."

February 1,

To whoever it may concern,

I, Stephen Patrick Rowland, have made a full recovery on my back issues. I am a bakery Manager at Publix, and having 2 herniated disks in my back in the L4/L5 and The L3 region of my spine, kind of put a damper on my work load. I moved with my back in so much pain I had to take hydrocodone just to be able to do the minimum tasks at work. It was terrible, and it seemed like there was nothing I could do to make myself better. The doctor I got my MRI from told me that I had to do surgery and it was the only way to fix myself. Since I didn’t meet my deductible it would have cost $6,000 out of pocket, and I know a lot of people and I know they don’t have that amount of money on hand.

At the time, I was seeing a chiropractor near my home and he said there was nothing he personally could do to fix me. So, he referred me to his longtime friend Dr. Enrique Crespo. I was of course skeptical on if he could fix me or not, but he was willing to work with my payments and he told me if I didn’t see a difference we could stop the VAX-D and I could go on with my surgery. So, I agreed, especially since he was willing to work with payment options.

Let me say, that in a few visits I drastically saw a difference. I could move more freely felt better, yet I was still having bad back pains occasionally. Dr. Crespo assured me that if I kept doing what he told me to do, that I would be better in no time. After time went by, my back starting getting better.

When all of this started, I felt scared and worried that I would never be able to hold my daughter again, go to my games and be an effective person in my hobbies. Now, I feel like a new person. Dr. Crespo gave me my life back, I’m able to play with my 2-year-old daughter now, swing her around, run in the park with her and generally have my life back. I don’t want to sound corny or anything like that, but he gave me back my life. Now I consider Jill and Dr. Crespo very close friends and I’m glad I made the decision that I did.

There are times when I over exert myself and then I truly feel my back hurting, but it’s nothing like it was before. Your back is the most important part of your body, make the right decision and don’t use surgery to fix your problems. The way our health system is set-up, it’s to make you pay for the rest of your life. Issues can occur with surgery that can be very dangerous. I took a risk with Vax-D, and it payed off!

I would have to say, put your faith in Vax-D and Dr. Crespo, it worked wonders for me when I felt all hope was lost.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart,

Stephen Rowland
