I would want someone who was in the same position I was in a year ago to be able to read my experience and think, “Wow! Maybe there is hope!”

My regained quality of life is nothing short of a miracle. I owe Colorado Pain Care and CPC Physical Therapy my life, literally. Their multi-faceted approach works and is truly a blessing. Going to physical therapy weekly, getting injections, and going to regular clinical visits has all been working TOGETHER. If I were doing one without another, I don’t know if I would be as progressed as I am now.

Being able to walk without assistance is something I have taken for granted. NOT ANYMORE! Without this program, I would be sitting in my chair, depressed, crying. I never knew how pain could affect my mental health. Because of CPC and physical therapy, I have found my smile again. Thank you so much for educating me and guiding me on my road to recovery. I completely understand what is going on in my body and CPC has my eternal gratitude.

Blessed to have you!!

During May of 2015, I was involved in an automobile accident which resulted in badly hurting my neck. After going to physical therapy for several months in hopes of healing my neck, my rotator cuff ended up tearing due to my neck injury. This caused me to be more disabled than I ever imagined. You never know what muscles and limbs you take for granted until you have absolutely no use of them and are in extreme pain.

I couldn’t sleep, drive, walk my dog, put on a coat, get dressed, spend time in my garden, or even pick up the coffee pot to pour myself a cup. My quality of life was zero to none as my shoulder and neck pain was so intense. I knew I DID NOT want any sort of surgery, so I started exploring all avenues.

I found Dr. Jason Krutsch at Colorado Pain Care in 2016 and started doing trigger point injections in my neck region to combat my pain in my neck and in my shoulder cuff. The trigger point injections helped to alleviate my pain. We started discussing the benefits of stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine during one of my visits, and I decided to give it a try. I researched the procedure and knew the pros and cons associated with it.

I had the procedure in December 2017, and a mere 24 hours after my stem cell therapy injections, I was still a little sore from the injection site, but 95% of my injury pain was gone! It was truly miraculous! All the horrendous pain was gone that I had been battling before. I kept going to physical therapy to make sure I could regain mobility, and sure enough — I did. I can now lift my arms, drive comfortably, sleep soundly, dry my hair after showering and style my hair, ride a bike, throw a ball, and now lift up the coffee pot without any pain or discomfort! I am back to Pilates and can enjoy my book club time without the stress of my painful shoulder and neck. A HUGE thank you to Dr. Krutsch for giving me back my quality of life, and letting me get back on track!!!

Compassion and care run deep in this practice. I’ve been a chronic pain patient for over 30 years due to several spinal fusions, DDD, osteoporosis, arthritis (osteo and RA), lumbar stenosis, scoliosis and related issues.  I’ve been to several pain clinics and I can say, without a doubt, that Colorado Pain Care is the best pain management practice in the state.  I was a patient at the pain clinic where CPC is now occupying in Golden.  I had no idea at the time that I had options other than prescription pain killers to help with my pain.  I was on a ridiculously high dosage of opiates for several years.  When CPC came into play, I was advised of the other modalities available that would assist in my pain management.  Over time, I’ve developed an amazing relationship with Dr. Krutsch and Rachael, my PA.  They have willingly and graciously walked out the journey of my getting off of the opioids completely.  The nerve blocks, steroid injections and ablations on my spine have helped tremendously.  The faces of a chronic pain patient vary.  Whether I’m laughing or in tears, the procedural team are like none other.  The level of compassion and sincerity that they put into their profession is second to none.  The clinic side is excellent as well.  I’ve had the pleasure of working with several of the doctors and PAs and can truthfully say that I would refer anyone I know to this practice, without hesitation.  The office staff is excellent as well.  Always pleasant and helpful.  This is not a pill mill.  They are extremely cautious and responsible.  I’m so grateful that I found the diamond in the rough with respect to great providers!

Most compassionate, kind & knowledgeable doctor ever! I traveled all the way back from Alabama to have a back procedure. I had always previously used sedation because I was anxious. Because I was flying out the next day, I went without the sedation this time. OMG, what a gentle doctor. He told me if I felt uncomfortable at all to let him know and he would slow down the injection. Completely painless. And I have no pain in my neck, left or right arms. I love all of the staff at Colorado Pain Care! Thank you!
