Kristine Fazzi’s Story: A Compressed Disc

Kristine Fazzi’s Story: A Compressed Disc

Kristine Fazzi had almost given up. Thirty years of looking down at a computer screen had compressed the spinal discs in her neck. Her hands hurt. Her arms were going numb, and pain shot down her chest. She was facing disability. After Fazzi’s chiropractor told her that she would not be able to walk within a year unless she had surgery, she went to see Dr. Anton Zaryanov. Though she was apprehensive at first, she decided to move forward with surgery because of Dr. Zaryanov’s training and the fact she trusted him. “He always listened and never discounted my knowledge,” says Fazzi. Today, she’s back at work and feels better than she thought possible.
