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!

China cutting auto import taxes as of July 1

May 22, 2018

BEIJING — China said Tuesday it will reduce auto import duties effective July 1 following pledges to buy more U.S. goods and end restrictions on foreign ownership in the industry. President Xi Jinping promised the changes in April amid mounting pressure from Washington to narrow China's multibillion-dollar trade surplus with the United States, though Chinese spokespeople said they had nothing to do with that dispute. The Finance Ministry said charges for many imported vehicles will be cut from 25 percent to 15 percent to promote development of the Chinese industry and increase availability of goods for consumers. That still would...

May 22, 2018

MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine president told drug suspects in a central province Tuesday to look for a way to get arrested and then stay in jail if they want to live longer, in his latest threat in his bloody anti-drug crackdown. President Rodrigo Duterte did not identify the targets of his warning in a televised threat-laden speech, but referred to people who grew rich through illegal drugs in Cebu province. "You know if I were you guys in Cebu, stay in jail. You want to live longer? Stay in jail," Duterte said. "Look for your own reason to be...

Airlines caving to Beijing despite White House protest

May 22, 2018

SHANGHAI — Global airlines are obeying Beijing's demands to refer to Taiwan explicitly as a part of China, despite the White House's call this month to stand firm against such "Orwellian nonsense." The Associated Press found 20 carriers, including Air Canada, British Airways and Lufthansa, that now refer to Taiwan, the self-ruled island that Beijing considers Chinese territory, as a part of China on their global websites. There are just three days left for dozens of foreign airlines to decide whether to comply with Beijing's orders, or face consequences that could cripple their China business, including legal sanctions. Many have...

May 22, 2018

HONG KONG — Thousands of local residents and tourists flocked to an outlying island in Hong Kong on Tuesday to celebrate a local bun festival despite recording-breaking heat. The festival features a parade with children dressed as deities floated on poles. Later on Tuesday, contestants were to take part in a bun-scrambling competition.

China wants Australian 'concrete actions' to improve ties

May 22, 2018

BEIJING — China on Tuesday called for "concrete actions" from Australia to improve ties following tensions over Beijing's anger with recent political moves by Canberra. The terse remarks by Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang followed a meeting between Foreign Minister Wang Yi and his Australian counterpart, Julie Bishop, that produced markedly different responses from the two sides. Lu quoted Wang as telling Bishop that Australia needed to "take off tinted glasses (and) see China's development from a positive perspective" if it really wanted to get relations back on track. "Tinted glasses" is Chinese diplomatic shorthand for what it sees as...
