In 2009 Barbra Thrasher fell down some stairs onto a concrete floor and her back has never been the same since the fall. Barbra did not want surgery or to take any type of drugs for her back pain. Instead she went to numerous doctors, chiropractors, massage therapist, etc., which helped some of her symptoms but the pain in her neck and back, was always there. After seeing an ad for the Illinois Back Institute she decided to come in and give the therapy a try.
Stenosis in her neck and bulging discs in her back caused Barbra pain. 1 out of 10 Barbra said he pain level when she first came in was 15! She was having burning pains in her back, was unable to sit in a chair straight or even bend over. The pain was affecting her every day life and she needed to get help right away.
Barbra has now almost completed her treatment at the Illinois Back Institute and says he pain level is now a 2! She spoke of how people who don’t suffer from neck and back pain don’t realize how much the pain affects the little things you do daily like brushing your hair, sitting in a chair, or going out for a walk. Barbra has been encouraging her friends who also suffer with neck and back pain to give the Illinois Back Institute a try. She is excited for her future and can’t wait to start doing things she couldn’t do since her fall.
- “Since I’ve been coming to the Illinois Back Institute I can truly say that I feel like I can go forward with things physically that I was unable to do before.” Said Barbra Thraher
