For 20 years, I have been crippled with fibromyalgia, leading to hip pain and lower and upper back pain. My condition has subsequently caused me to have sleeping and walking problems. Before the help of Colorado Pain Care, I couldn't walk more than half a mile at a time, and even that was a struggle. I had no mobility and was losing faith in myself, leading to a downward spiral of depression and sleeping almost 20 hours a day. After being treated with injections and nerve ablations, I can now sleep soundly through the night and not wake up in pain. Since my successful ablations, I have started walking up to two miles at a time each day, and never take a day or an activity for granted anymore. Though injections do not work the same for everyone, Colorado Pain Care will make sure to find a plan that is perfectly suited to you and your preferences.
Overall, I have a better quality of life and enjoy doing things I used to enjoy doing such as reading and being asleep for excessive amounts of time. To help my injections and back pain, I have also been going to physical therapy for the past 8 months, and am going to continue to keep going. Staying active and mobile has helped the injections work optimally and helps my fibromyalgia flare ups. If you want to find a place to change your life and handle your pain better, I highly recommend Colorado Pain Care.
For 15 years, my life has been controlled by my back pain due to spinal stenosis. My spinal stenosis was so debilitating I couldn’t walk upright, had to hunch over with my knees bent, and shuffle my feet anytime I moved around. Throughout the day, it would get progressively worse, and most often by the end of the day, I would be unable to walk even a few short steps without stopping to hunch over my cane. After taking oral medication for years to help ease the pain, my doctor suggested I was a good candidate for Vertiflex. The entire staff was always patient with me, never made me feel rushed, and answered all my questions competently.
On the same day as my procedure, I felt IMMEDIATE relief as I left the surgery center and was able to walk completely upright into my house without zero medication for the first time in years! Since my procedure six weeks ago, my life has changed completely. I now feel like I am back to my old self – I can go to the grocery store, effortlessly walk up and down stairs, and walk leisurely for exercise. I can now enjoy time with my grandchildren and play around with them.
I am now regaining strength in my back and leg muscles through continued physical therapy twice a week. The physical therapist has been strengthening muscles I hadn’t been using for years due to my spinal stenosis and overcompensation from other muscle groups. CPC's physical therapy team are confident and skillful while also providing a warm, encouraging environment in the PT clinic, leading to maximum comfort for patients. They know my body’s boundaries and do not push me to the limit or rush me.
I consider CPC my superhero for the rest of my life because he has totally cured me of my perpetual back pain from spinal stenosis. The entire staff at Colorado Pain Care, from authorizing my insurance to checking me out of the clinic, has been absolutely amazing in customer service and care. I want someone reading this to know there is hope out there for back pain and spinal stenosis, even if you are 80 years old like me! There are amazing people at CPC ready and willing to help you! Thank you to the whole team at Colorado Pain Care!
I cannot tell you what a personable medical professional Dr. Jason Krutsch is. From the moment I first met him at my initial appointment, he was phenomenal and focused. When he comes into the exam room or to perform your procedure, he makes sure you know you are his ONLY priority and takes however much time that may be needed. Dr. Krutsch never seems distracted or rushed with his patients, and it is truly appreciated. I have been a patient of his now for 3 years and his work ethic, along with the entire staff, is exceptional. If he and the team at Colorado Pain Care can’t fix it, nobody can.
In the fall of 2015, I was referred to Colorado Pain Care for my chronic back pain. My vertebral discs had become misshapen, and I decided to try pain management instead of surgery. I met with Dr. Jason Krutsch who discussed multiple treatment plans and options for my pain. At one point I also mentioned I had suffered from headaches and migraines for a long period of time, and he suggested I try Botox injections for relief. I began getting back injections every two weeks and found relief. I had nerve blocks and radiofrequency ablations performed by Dr. Krutsch up until the back surgery I had scheduled for fall 2016. After having surgery, I returned to Colorado Pain Care for medication management and continued to be treated for my migraines.
I no longer suffer from pain in back or SI joints, and the Botox for my migraines makes them extremely tolerable now. Before getting Botox treatments, I wouldn’t be able to live functionally as I would have to be isolated due to my headaches, and now I am no longer impacted by bright light or sounds on a regular basis. They are much more manageable now, thanks to the help of Colorado Pain Care!
The entire team was amazing and the spinal cord stimulator trial is going great! Thank you Patty, Laura, Monica, Michele, and of course, Dr. Krutsch!!! You guys rock!
Dr. Krutsch is the best in pain care in Colorado by far! I have tried a myriad of remedies for migraines over the years- you name it, i have tried it! - but Dr. Krutsch has provided the only cure. His warm and professional manner belies the fact that he is a genius at what he does. If you have pain and in particular migraines, this is the person to see and Colorado Pain Care is the place to go!
I have had several treatments here and am always treated with great care and respect. It is much appreciated.
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 trulymiraculous! 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!
CO Pain appointments are doctor visits I really look froward to! The pain relief - and hope - that they provide is of enormous benefit to me. I really appreciate the entire staff - from the folks at the front desk - to the nurses - to the doctors who provide direct services. I cannot say enough about the quality of care I have been receiving. Thank you so much!!
Dr. Krutsch and his staff are amazing. If it wasn't for Dr. Krutsch I wouldn't be walking today. Thank you to each and everyone of you.
Third time into this facility, and I continue to be impressed. The entire team is empathetic, fast, and professional. Dr. Krutsch is awesome. He genuinely cares and goes out of his way to make you feel like he's your buddy, and truly wants you to be rid of the pain. It's quite unusual with most doctors.
Dr. Krutsch was amazing. The results from Regenerative Therapy exceeded all my expectations. I was back up and fully functional in two weeks, and back at the gym in four weeks!
After suffering for 17 years and a botched spinal fusion, I finally found CPC and Dr. Jason Krutsch who fixed my back, shoulder blades, and rotator cuffs! I felt so weighed down and exhausted before I found this clinic!
Thank you Dr. Krutsch for helping me with my pain.
I really am shocked that every experience I have with this team is exceptional. They know I'm coming, call me by name, and I'm in and out FAST. Dr. Krutsch is super cool and personal. On top of it all, the treatments really provide relief. Can't thank you enough...
After having chronic pain for 11 years, the impact of Colorado Pain Care has been huge. Dr. Krutsch is great at his job and comforting during treatments. I haven't had this level of pain free life in years and I would send any one of my friends or family to them without hesitation.
I’m so pleased with Dr Krutsch. He did my Botox injections and my pain was very minimal. Courteous and respectful.
The whole entire staff has my gratitude and thanks! Tammy is an absolutely fantastic provider!
