Around 20 years ago Angela Price started suffering from lower back pain. Angela use to run a daycare out of her home and one afternoon she went to pick up a child when all of a sudden she could not stand back up. The pain was so bad she had to be driven to the hospital for a shot of Demerol just to be able to move again. Since that one incident 20 years ago Angela has been going to Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, and has done acupuncture. The relief from these treatments just didn’t last.
One Sunday morning in February Angela woke up and could not move at all. Her pain level was at a 9 or 10. As she laid in her bed with tears in her eyes she saw Dr. Jeff’s Illinois Back Institute half hour show. Angela called in and set her appointment up right away. “It was amazing! I saw how they treat everybody here. The staff is wonderful. How they put you through the different exercises that they do has gotten me from a 9 or 10 pain level to a 1 or 2 and actually some days no pain at all,” said Angela.
“I am able to do things that I wasn’t able to do for basically 20 years!” Angela is now able to play with her grandchildren and children and finally go on vacations with them. She did have one set back due to traveling for her job but it only lasted a short while and once she was able to get back to her routine the pain went away.
Angela’s short-term goal when she started treatment was to be pain free for 2 or 3 days and she has been able to complete that. Her long-term goal is to be completely pain free and she sees that in her future when she completes her treatment. Angela does her exercises twice a day everyday and is excited to see her pain disappear more and more everyday. “I’ve seen other people besides myself come in scrunched down and now they’re walking great so I would definitely encourage anyone to come in!”
