The summer of 2016 I was experiencing a lot of pain in my back. I had an MRI done and found out I had spinal stenosis and disc disease. During the fall, I was seeing a back surgeon with the possibility having back surgery. It was decided I would try physical therapy. My back responded to therapy but I was still experiencing pain. Then I suggested I see an orthopedic doctor who had to replace my right hip. After going through therapy I knew I needed to do something more to improve my health. That is when I decided to take up yoga and tai chi at Body & Brain Libertyville. It was the right decision my flexibility has improved and the pain in my back has decreased since taking it since Jan. of 2018.
