Returning a chef to the kitchen!

New Dad Benched by Herniated Disc

Shortly after becoming a new father Ryan began experiencing back pain that radiated down his leg. The back pain became more intense with time and eventually consumed almost every moment of his life. He couldn't stand or sit without pain, his only relief came when lying on the floor.

After seeking out alternative treatments including "spending thousands of dollars on a chiropractor with no improvement", Ryan visited Resurgens Orthopaedics. The on-site MRI showed a herniated disc between the L4 and L5 vertebrae.

Ryan was treated by Dr. Bennett Grimm and from their first encounter, Dr. Grimm immediately put him at ease. "He related to me and my family and the life I was trying to get back to. Dr. Grimm said he'd get that pain out of my body. He gave me confidence and I was drawn to his confidence."

Local Actor Praises Resurgens Spine Center for "First-Class" Spine Care

"I've always loved doing my own stunts," said Durkin of these positions. "But looking back now, I probably should have let the stunt-men step in more than I did."

Off set, Durkin maintains these physical abilities through CrossFit training, triathlon preparation, and more recreational sporting activities like golf and baseball.

In the spring of 2014, Durkin's highly physical lifestyle and stunt-work as an actor finally began to catch up with him.

"I first came to Resurgens for multiple ripped disks in my back," said Durkin. "I did a lot of research in preparation for seeking medical attention, and all signs pointed to Dr. Jeffords at Resurgens as one of the best in Atlanta for spine care."
