A few days before my vacation, I pulled a muscle in the lower left side of my back, making it very painful to bend at the waist in any direction.  It seemed like all the activities I'd planned would have to be cancelled since the pain was not subsiding.  I was able to see Dr. Tripp on my first day off, and was amazed to feel so much better by the end of my appointment -- I never thought such immediate relief was possible!  I was able to participate in everything I'd planned to do, which would have never happened without her help.
