About 7 years ago while Kathleen Bramonte was crossing the street she was hit by a car. After the accident Kathleen got an MRI done that showed she was suffering with 1 bulging disc. Over time the pain increased and her MRI recently showed she now had 3 bulging disc with 2 of them on the right side. The bulging discs were causing her back pain and pain in her legs and toes.
Surgery was not an option for Kathleen. She had heard too many back surgery horror stories and did not want to put herself through that. The pain was so intense that she could hardly walk. Kathleen thought she was going to have to live the rest of her life in a wheelchair.
“I thought I was never going to be able to walk but I came here and I’m very happy with them. I feel 100% better, barely any pain and I would recommend this to anybody,” said Kathleen.
Kathleen’s sister-in-law recommended she give the Illinois Back Institute a try. When she first came in her pain level was at a 7 or 8. Now she is at the end of her treatment and her pain level is a zero! Her goal was to be able to walk at least a block. Kathleen is now able to walk more than 5 blocks with no pain at all. She was finally able to go to the carnivals she loves to attend without any pain. “I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t sit too long, couldn’t stand too long. Pretty much the only relief I got was laying down but who wants to stay in bed or on the couch all the time? I mean that’s no life!”
Kathleen not only feels better but also had a great time coming in for treatment. She loves the staff and made friends with some of the other patients. “They are like family now. I don’t want to leave,” said Kathleen when she was asked about the staff. She was also given stretches and exercises to bring home with her. Kathleen thought they probably wouldn’t work but she was wrong. They did and are still working with for her.
“Don’t waste anymore time! Get here because you’ll be feeling better very quick!” said Kathleen Bramonte.
