Linda Mangum Suffers Bulging Disk from Landscape Work

Linda Mangum is a patient at our Cool Springs clinic and suffered a bulging disk between her L4 and L5 vertebrae while also suffering from Sciatica.  Linda was moving a large number of landscape blocks when the lower part of her started hurting badly.  It was hard to straighten up immediately afterwards.  After about six weeks, the pain started to move down her left hip and leg making it difficult to walk, sit, or bend.  It became difficult to take care of her animals, including her dogs, cats, and chickens.

To relieve her pain, Linda started physical therapy at Elite.  Her primary goal was to strengthen the muscles in her back and legs to help reduce the pain from her sciatic nerve.  After nine visits, Linda started to feel quite a bit better.  She feels the therapy has helped a lot especially as she has started her home therapy.  Elite has taught her how to do the stretches at home that has helped to reduce her pain.  When asked if she would refer her friends and family to Elite, Linda said, “Yes! The people at Elite are so friendly and helpful, from the time you walk in the door to when you leave.  They are so caring also.”

Thank you Linda for choosing Elite Physical Therapy and Balance for your recovery needs.  We are so proud of you and the progress you have made.  Be careful with that landscaping!
