Getting Past Aches & Agony
June 18, 2012 · No Comments
With compassionate care, NorthBay Healthcare’s team of experts seeks to ease pain in the lives of all our patients, addressing everything from headaches to foot pain, and all problems in between.
In this issue, we’ll share stories of how doctors, therapists, nurses and social workers strive to free our patients from a gamut of afflictions.
You’ll meet an 89-year-old woman whose leg pain was so excruciating she could hardly walk—until she had spine surgery with Charles Sonu, M.D.
You’ll meet a 30-year-old Vacaville man who can now help take care
of his newborn baby girl, thanks to reconstructive shoulder surgery by
Dr. Stephen Franzino.
There was a pregnant woman whose back was so tender, she could barely make it through her day as a preschool teacher. Nights found her on the couch with an ice pack, until she met Dr. Angela Lim and found relief in Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment.
The list goes on and on.
That fact is that everyone suffers pain to some extent. Some try to endure it, while others have found a variety of approaches—from surgery to medicine, from manipulation to therapy—can make all the difference in the world.
In this issue, meet our patients and the wonderful physicians and staff that help in the healing process.
