What situation or injury led you to ORSI?
A football injury during college led to a number of orthopedic issues, including severe back pain in my lumbar spine. After years of living with the pain and avoiding activities I love, I had an MRI that revealed juvenile disc degeneration disease with a bulge in the L5 disc.
How would you categorize your story?
In terms of physical activity, I have my life back, which I wasn’t sure was possible.
Please share your experience.
My experience at OrthoRehab has been incredible. When I started, my life revolved around my back pain. Over the course of my treatment, I’ve become essentially pain free and have regained the strength and stability to do many of the activities I love (including tennis and biking). I always felt as though expectations around my treatment plan were clear and that any concerns I had were always addressed in a respectful and compassionate manner.
What goals did OrthoRehab help you accomplish?
I was able to regain key stability, flexibility, and strength that has enabled me to be active again. Fitness and various physical activities are now a part of my everyday life, which has dramatically improved my quality of life. I can say that all of my goals have been attained in large part due to the help of the team at OrthoRehab.
