Hello everyone,

I am a 28 year old (male) former police officer from Oklahoma who was involved in an on duty car wreck where my vehicle was struck (t-boned) at highway speeds, causing major shoulder damage to one of my shoulders (several rotator cuff muscles torn, tendons damaged, axillary nerve was also injured and remains compressed. Had my patrol car flipped, I would not likely be here today. I already had back issues in my thoracic spine, which has bothered me my entire life. After the wreck, my back pain was diagnosed as multilevel DDD of my entire t-spine. I had a full knee replacement last November because of baseball lasting injuries from college. I have been a chronic pain patient for the last 3 years. Because of pain management, my quality of life has improved dramatically and I am looking forward to meeting all members of this community, as it seems like a very caring and accepting forum/community.

Thank you if you took the time to read my intro,
