Before coming to the Illinois Back Institute, Stephanie Hill was seeing a therapist regularly because her artificial hip was causing her to have severe and stabbing pain up her back and down her legs. When she realized that the therapy wasn’t working, she decided to go see a specialist. Her bone specialist told her she was going to have the pain the rest of her life unless she had surgery. Stephanie Hill kept telling them that she didn’t want to have the surgery.
- Stephanie heard about the Illinois Back Institute and the therapies they do there, she was nervous. Her mom who saw the commercial on TV, reassured her and said, “It’s not supposed to hurt. No pain, no surgery and no drugs.” Stephanie replies, “Well I could go for all 3 of those.”
On Stephanie’s initial visit into the Illinois Back Institute she was very nervous. She was worried about the stretches and the exercises. But after going through the therapy, she explains, “The stretches feel so good. It relaxes you and gets all the little kinks out.” She says they not only work on your back, but they also help you with your balance and posture.
One of the many things Stephanie loves about the Illinois Back Institute is they tell you every step of the way what they’re going to do. They don’t do anything without letting you know first.”
- “They’re just so welcoming here. Just by the personalities you have here, it makes you want to come back. This is a cool place.”
She is happy that she didn’t do the surgery and says, “This is the best thing that has ever happened to me. It’s the best decision I have ever made.” She continues, “I’m glad I came through. I got my help, now I am gone and keep up with the stretches at home. The Illinois Back Institute works!” She explains that she can now bend over, put on her shoes and she doesn’t need any help anymore. “I didn’t need to get cut up, didn’t need have to take drugs, it did not hurt…all I can say is…come get your back fixed at the Illinois Back Institute…because I did!”
