"Several months ago, Doctor Parikh examined my lower back that was causing me to experience severe back and left leg pain during the night that kept me from sleeping for no more than several hours a night. Doctor Parikh reviewed an MRI that he had requested be made on my Lower Lumbar section and determined I was experiencing the pain in a joint. Doctor Parikh scheduled the following injection procedure; L Si JT Inj.. I followed Doctor Parikh's instructions after he performed the injection and, that night, I got the best sleep, without any back or leg pain, that I've had in weeks and months. Since then, I have sleep all night without any back or leg pain and I feel like a new person since I get plenty of sleep and rest at night. I want to take this opportunity to express my sincere "Thanks" to Doctor Parikh for his knowledge and his time to locate my lower back problem and to provide me relief through the procedure he preformed to get me back to normal and to get the rest and sleep I'm getting now. I really appreciate Doctor Parikh and I appreciate him, his Staff and Assistants and everyone at Carolina Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center for their care, support and attention." – Jerry C.
