Houston Orthopedic Spine Surgeon, Dr. Richard R.M. Francis has been helping patients suffering from decades of chronic back pain to get Back to Normal since he founded Spine Associates in 2003. Dr. Francis is one of the few spine surgeons who treats children and adults from around the world. Spine Associates also helps their International Patients and families with travel and accommodations through their International Medical Services.

Imagine how it would be to have suffered from chronic back pain for years or even decades? Some patients were diagnosed and seen by multiple doctors over the years and possibly even had a surgery or two. That’s how it was for many of Dr. Francis’ patients.

Here are a few of their Testimonials….

There’s Jeremiah Barnes who became bedridden and partially paralyzed after two former surgeries who found Dr. Francis and had emergency surgery two weeks later to remove hardware and correct the previous surgeries. Jeremiah is now back to work, active with family and friends, has regained mobility and function and now feels like he is in as good a shape at 40 years old as he was at 25.

Then there is Joseph Manjack III. In 2000 he was run over while on foot by a vehicle. Throughout the last 16 years he had been struggling with severe pain in both his neck and lower back. In 2016 the pain was no longer bearable and Joseph was in so much pain that his blood pressure was through the roof and it even began to affect his vision. The doctors thought he was having a heart attack. Joseph had not been able to keep a job and provide for his family, his marriage was starting to fall apart and he was beginning to have depression and feel like he didn’t want to live anymore. Though he was very skeptical of surgery he found Dr. Francis, had surgery and now feels like a completely different and brand-new person. He would recommend Spine Associates to anyone that has any neck, spine, or back problems. He said that Dr. Francis takes his time and explains everything that his patients will be feeling and going through. Joseph now feels like Dr. Francis has changed his life and now it’s better than ever!

There is Dora Orta who had been suffering with back pain since 2005. In 2006, she had her first back surgery and after the surgery was still in a lot of pain. That same year she had her second back surgery with the same doctor and still had the constant back pain and the top part of her body was leaning forward. Her pain management doctor referred her to Dr. Richard Francis who took x-rays and showed her what was wrong with her back. Dr. Francis told her that it would be a challenge, but that he would be able to fix her back. On April 13, 2011, she had her back surgery. Afterward she said the doctors, nurses and staff were the most personable, caring and uplifting people that she and her had ever dealt with in a medical environment. Now she can stand straight, walk better and is no longer in constant pain thanks to Dr. Francis.

Another patient of Dr. Francis, Douglas Clark, who lived in Iowa fell 20 feet off a roof when he was 16 years old. He lived through the pain for 33 years and finally, after an MRI with his family doctor, was referred to Dr. Francis. Douglas saw Dr. Francis, was properly diagnosed and had surgery 20 days later which immediately relieved the pressure on his spinal cord. After some physical therapy he could return to work, his flexibility and mobility improved, and his daily life has improved.

There is also Wendy Strange who is now 46 years old but was diagnosed with Scoliosis when she was 14. She wore a brace for one year after her first diagnosis but over the years had noticed significant changes in the degree of the curves in her back. Wendy experienced constant discomfort and her previous doctor offered her nothing that helped her to deal with her condition. Wendy found Dr. Francis who told he that he could correct her spine problem. She knew she did not want her scoliosis to continue to progress, leaving her crippled and unable to live the active lifestyle that she and her husband enjoyed. Wendy had her surgery performed by Dr. Francis and after strictly following her post-op instructions could dance at her son’s wedding just 8 weeks after her surgery…. Just like Dr. Francis said she would!

AP FACT CHECK: Trump denies knowing women he met

Dec 16, 2017

WASHINGTON — Like Roy Moore before him, President Donald Trump has denied he knows or ever met women who have accused him of unwanted sexual advances. That denial is no more plausible than what people heard from the defeated Alabama Senate candidate. Trump's tweet on the subject is at odds with the record — photos included — and was just one in a series of questionable statements he made over the past week on a variety of subjects. A look at a sampling: TRUMP: "Despite thousands of hours wasted and many millions of dollars spent, the Democrats have been unable...

NASA drops replica Orion spacecraft to test parachutes

Dec 16, 2017

YUMA, Ariz. — NASA on Friday successfully dropped a replica Orion spacecraft from an Air Force transport aircraft to a southwestern Arizona desert site to test the craft's ability to cope with a partial parachute failure. The test used two of Orion's three main parachutes to simulate the failure of the third and still sufficiently slowed the spacecraft for a landing. Previous attempts were thwarted by a failure of the C-17 plane's cargo doors to open at the drop altitude of 35,000 feet (10,668 meters) on Wednesday and by high winds on Thursday. Jim McMichael, a NASA systems engineer, said...

Disney-Fox deal may create a new nerdy nirvana

Dec 16, 2017

MENLO PARK, California — The coming union of the Disney and Fox media empires is set to create a new nirvana for fanboys and -girls, one that reunites superheroes and sci-fi characters long separated by an energy barrier of corporate legalism. Take, for instance, the fractured world of Marvel superheroes. For years, the X-Men (Wolverine, Storm, Professor X and the crew) and the Fantastic Four (Thing, Invisible Woman, et al) have battled bad dudes from the studios of 20th Century Fox. Meanwhile Iron Man, Black Widow and other Avengers vanquished villains in another corner of the galaxy run by Disney....

Tax bill boosts oil, gas drilling _ and renewable energy

Dec 16, 2017

WASHINGTON — The Republicans' tax package would boost traditional forms of energy such as oil and gas while also supporting renewable energy such as wind and solar power — and even extend a hand to buyers of electric cars. An agreement by House and Senate negotiators would open Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling, while preserving tax credits for wind power and other clean energy. The bill also would extend a tax credit of up to $7,500 for purchases of plug-in electric vehicles such as the Tesla Model 3 and Chevrolet Bolt. Republicans rolled out the bill late Friday....

SpaceX 1st: Recycled rocket soars with recycled capsule

Dec 16, 2017

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX racked up another first on Friday, launching a recycled rocket with a recycled capsule on a grocery run for NASA. The unmanned Falcon rocket blasted off with a just-in-time-for-Christmas delivery for the International Space Station, taking flight again after a six-month turnaround. On board was a Dragon supply ship, also a second-time flier. It was NASA's first use of a reused Falcon rocket and only the second of a previously flown Dragon. Within 10 minutes of liftoff, the first-stage booster was back at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, standing upright on the giant X at...
