Fallen Violinist Survives

A famous violinist had developed increasing numbness and weakness of his bowing hand over 15 years that finally prevented him from performing. In the Spinal Foundation he underwent a 2 level fusion with PEEK (radiolucent) cages filled with a man-made bone substitute and securely fixed with mini plates to his vertebrae. He left hospital 2 days after surgery with his bowing arm completely recovered. He was warned to be careful but on the way to his Greenhouse the next day he slipped, fell to the ground and jarred his neck. He had sudden pain in the neck and shoulder blade and called the Spinal Foundation. He was reassured and advised. 2 hours later all his pain had resolved and we have a happy violinist once more.
