“I am an independent truck driver. I have had low back pain here and there over the years that would usually go away after a coupe days. But this time was different. The pain got so bad that I could not sit and driving became intolerable. I was anxious because this is how I make my living. If I don’t drive, I don’t make money. It got so bad that I was switching between Motrin and Tylenol every few hours. A couple times when I got home, my wife had to help me out of the rig because I could not stand up. I work long hours and I am on the road in different states, so it was impossible to schedule appointments. I stumbled upon VPT while searching the internet for relief.”
“I never heard of telemedicine, but it was great to be able to get a doctor appointment while I was on the road. I was able to use my cab for the evaluation. My doctor found that my sitting posture is what caused a problem in my back and when it goes out, I am unable to stand up. He gave me an exercise to do and showed me how to sit with a lumbar roll. Just changing the way I sat decreased my pain. I did my exercises every two hours and used my back support like he told me. I could not believe how fast I got better. My pain does return if I slouch for too long, but as soon as I do what my doctor told me, I feel better. “
“VPT is not only convenient but also saved me a ton of money. Thank you VPT!” Larry T.
