Karl's Story

Karl Thaning suffered from back pain for 30 years. When the pain finally became unbearable, he opted to have surgery to release the pressure on his spinal cord. His pain was gone the moment he woke up from surgery, and now he wishes he had done it sooner.

"It affects your family life, your home life, your work life, you’re not getting proper sleep. It was getting pretty bad and I knew I had to do something."
