Abigail’s Story

A family argument led to years of misery for Abigail Morris of Shropshire. Angered by her brother Abigail took out her emotions on a iron box outside the family home. But rather than quell her fury, it turned out a few swift kicks had broken her toe. Initially just a little sore, Abigail’s foot soon began to swell and become very painful, leading to a visit to hospital.

Jaclyn’s Story

In 2000, Jaclyn broke her ankle while cheerleading. The ankle healed, but chronic pain in the ankle and lower leg remained, limiting her ability to walk, interact with others, and sleep. Physical therapy provided only temporary relief. Her pain physician suggested Jaclyn try neurostimulation therapy from Medtronic.
