Lockport resident has life back due to physical therapy received at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago at Silver Cross in Homer Glen
New Lenox, IL (October 29, 2014) - For over 14 years, Lockport resident Elizabeth “Liz” LaFollette suffered from severe back pain. During this time, she had multiple surgeries to relieve the excruciating pain. She was doing well until last September when she started experiencing foot pain and by December she was unable to walk. It was then determined that Liz was suffering from a failed Lumbar fusion surgery and SI (Sacroiliac) Joint Dysfunction which was causing pressure on her sciatic nerve leading to severe left leg pain, weakness and gait instability. After enduring yet another surgery, Liz was stressed and depressed because she was not able to work for eight months and was faced with the overwhelming task of completing a long physical therapy rehabilitation program. “My therapist Rich gave me the hope that I desperately needed. If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have my life back. He saved my health and my career,” exclaimed Liz LaFollette.
