This month’s featured patient:

March_PatientOfTheMonth_FBI was in need of a spinal fusion after my husband and I were in a car accident in 2012. Like many patients, the spinal fusion relieved my nerve pain but afterward I was left with constant back pain. After the surgery, I was told that I might not be able to practice ballet or dance again for the rest of my life.

Three years after the surgery, I went to Athletico Elk Grove Village for strengthening exercises to help with my pain. I started my physical therapy with Paul Galiano and finished up my last sessions with Lauren Gaeger. The physical therapy helped, but I also ended up needing a spinal cord stimulator. After having the spinal cord stimulator put in and working with Athletico’s physical therapist to strengthen my back, I was able to start working out again with zero pain. This also meant that I could get back to dancing, as well as doing other things that I love, such as hiking Matthiessen State Park without any back pain. I’m now looking forward to getting into a new career, such as nursing or law enforcement.
