What Our Patients Say
“My son has battled Tourette’s Syndrome since he was 6 years old. The constant “chirping”, tics in his face, arms, legs and stomach kept him from wanting to socialize with the other kids in his class. Over time, his self-esteem hit rock bottom and he became more reclusive. We discussed various medications with his doctor to decrease anxiety or decrease the tics, neither offered a feasible solution. While looking for alternative solutions, Dr. Worth’s name kept coming up. Our pediatrician, pediatric neurologist, psychologist, and a few neighbors all reported wonderful things. After working with Missouri Brain and Spine, my son is doing fantastic, and is the star of his soccer team. Thank you for all you that do Dr. Worth”.
“In the summer 2013 my son Caleb had a brain injury and epidural hematoma that required surgery and three weeks in the ICU. He was left unable to walk without falling, memory loss, limited attention, slow processing and speech, and personality changes. When he was finally able to come home, we were told that time would tell what his outcome would be. Devastated that our once vibrant and energetic son was becoming more depressed and withdrawn with each day, my husband and searched until we found Dr. Worth at Missouri Brain and Spine. Within five days of beginning therapy, Caleb’s personality and sense of humor started to emerge. Within two weeks, he was reaching goals that the hospital doctors were doubtful that he would ever achieve. Today we have our son back and the only sign of his injury is the scar on his head.”
“My son Alex was diagnosed 2 years ago with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder with associated Asperger’s symptoms. We tried ABA therapy, Ritalin, Dexedrine and weekly counseling with little improvement. His behaviors were putting a strain on our entire family and his schooling. Throughout the brain-based rehabilitation program that Dr. Worth created for our son, we saw almost daily improvement in his attention, behavior, socialization, and academics. This was a LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE for Alex, his academics and most importantly, our family.”
“In 2007 I was diagnosed with reflex sympathetic dystrophy, which required a spinal stimulator. Eleven months later I developed tremors in my upper and lower extremities which left me wheelchair bound and on disability. Thirty minutes into my initial exam, Dr. Worth was able to stop all my tremors for the first time in five years. It was about 4 weeks before he had me standing, and 8 weeks before I could walk again. Now I am back to work and engaged to be married next spring”.
“Our son has always struggled with academics and behavior, even in kindergarten. His teachers said that he bounces off the walls, won’t stay seated, is disruptive to his classmates and is like a bull in a china shop. He acted the same way with his siblings. We consulted behavior therapist, child psychiatrists, pediatric neurologist, and tried various medications that took our boy away from us. Upon the recommendation of our friend, we met with Dr. Worth to inquire about what he might be able to offer. My husband and I sat in on the neurological examination, and were absolutely amazed at the findings. During his treatment we saw our son’s behavior change almost weekly. Now he is getting only green days in school. Thank you, Dr. Worth and your team.”
“We always knew there was something different about our son. He just didn’t fit in with the other kids. As our his treatment progressed, it was as if his brain awakened to the world. He began to engage his environment, family, teachers and therapists. We are were awe-struck by the changes.”
“I’ve suffered with chronic migraines since puberty. As I’ve aged, they had become more frequent, more severe and more debilitating. I used be bedridden from a few days to a week with each headaches. Since working with the physicians at Missouri Brain and Spine I haven’t had another headache”.
“The brain fog and headaches are GONE…my sense of balance renewed… my memory sharp…I awaken rested…my ability to focus continues to improve”.
“After just a few visits, she is able to confidently walk around the house, and ride in the car without getting sick”.
“It was the first time I’ve seen her smile in seven years”.
