About Us

I have been seeing predominantly Dr Wolff and Shelia Janisch for several years. Most recently with debilitating SI joint pain after two fusion revisions. I’m forever grateful to Southwest Spine team for helping me to heal. I thought the relentless shooting pain through my foot would never tone down to a level 5 pain. I’m grateful we persisted through several medications and nerve blocks to manage my pain.

Below the waist I am an orthopedic mess. I've had several back injections from Spine and Sports specifically Dr. Wolff. I've had knee injections. I've had hip injections. All are arthritic conditions and wear conditions that have been quite painful. Dr. Wolff and his staff particularly Sheila Janisch have been absolutely spectacular in their care and their friendliness.

Dr. Wolff changed my life twice! The first time he treated me for severe lower lumbar pain that had plagued me for over 20 years. After his prescribed treatments I was pain free for 2 years. Then after I was rear-ended in an car accident,  I had lower back, hip and SI joint pain that was once again quite debilitating. After many months of physical therapy trying to resolve the issues,  Dr. Wolff’s pain management treatments once again got me back on my feet.  Its been nearly 3 years and I’m still feeling great!
