Martha “Marty” Weidenbach is a patient in our Shelbyville clinic. Marty battles multiple sclerosis on a daily basis. Because there is not cure for MS, Elite can help Marty and other patients manage their symptoms and pain through physical therapy when needed. Unfortunately for Marty, over the last year her MS has caused weakness in her left leg which was leading to falling regularly. Therefore, through our balance center, we started to work with Marty to help her strengthen her leg and vestibular issues to help prevent these falls.
After only a handful of visits, Marty showed improvement in both her leg strength and balance. She has reduced the number of falls and feels much more confident in her daily activities. Marty feels Elite has greatly helped her in managing the symptoms as they have all worked very hard to get her to her current level of stability. She likes doing the therapy and loves how knowledgeable the staff is in helping her with MS. Overall, she says, “They make me smile because they are so positive.”
Marty, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your pain and symptom management process. You have such a kind and sweet spirit as you battle this disease daily. Your tenacity and vigor for life is so inspiring. We love to assist you whenever we can.
