The expression “No Pain, No Gain” has a special meaning for personal injury lawyer Matt White.
After suffering a debilitating back injury, White devoted every spare minute to research, and he created Spine Revitalizer, a nutraceutical product that helps heal those with similar injuries.
“My injury was like an electric current that rushed up my back,” White said. ”It was terrible. I drove home and got out of the car and the minute I stood up, I knew something had happened. The pain would come and go. For a few weeks the pain go away, but it would come back. It got to the point where I remember being on the den floor and couldn’t move.”
It got to the point where he couldn’t pick up his baby, and that’s when he went to talk to a surgeon. The prospects were not good.
“After the surgeon told me about the condition of his patients following their surgeries, I said ‘I’m going to find a way to get past this,’” White said.
White’s research led him to several ingredients that are important to health and strength.
“Anti-inflammatory, analgesic and substrate rebuilder (collagen) were popular with people and these are the things that people found good results with, so I started taking them,” White said. “Two months later I was feeling well enough to enlist a personal trainer to rehab my back. But my kitchen counter was covered end to end with bottles and that’s when I had an epiphany: I should package these ingredients together and make taking these ingredients manageable.”
White contacted some manufacturers and got the Spine Revitalizer to market.
“I had no intention of doing this but it was borne of necessity. I’ve told people about it, I tell my clients not to have back surgery.”
White has slowly rolled out the product, and launched his website.
As for his personal injury practice at Gray & White Law?
“You might say I’m a conflicted lawyer,” he joked. ”I love my practice, but I don’t want people to be in pain.”
