L4 Stress Fracture
Hannah Fisher came to The Rehab Center in January after experiencing lower back pain for quite a while. She is an active 15 year old high school athlete, who frequently plays basketball and started noticing the pain back in December of 2012. After undergoing an MRI, the results showed that she had a stress fracture to the L4 vertebrae. Hannah started out just doing land-base therapy at The Rehab Center, but did not experience any success with just land therapy. Shortly thereafter, Dudurich has Hannah in the HydroWorx 500 Series pool for aquatic therapy sessions. Dudurich tells us that the main focus in the pool was maintaining her cardiovascular levels, increasing core strength and working on balance.
