Claudia Wells: How She Got Back to Her Future

In

In 1985, Claudia Wells was a 19-year-old actress starring as Michael J. Fox’s girlfriend in the blockbuster hit “Back to the Future.”

One year later, her career, not to mention her life, nearly ended when she was involved in a head-on collision.

As is the case for many accident victims, it took decades for the full impact of her injuries to be felt.

She saw doctor after doctor and no one knew what was wrong with her. She was in so much pain, yet she felt most doctors weren’t taking her symptoms seriously.

Finally, a friend suggested she reach out to Robert Masson, M.D., of the NeuroSpine Institute. Within a week, she was on a plane from Beverly Hill, California, heading to Orlando, Florida.

She explains why she believes Dr. Masson not only gave her her life back, he proved to her that God exists.
