Carol Ostrander has suffered with back problems for over 30 years because she has scoliosis.

"I'm really glad I went to the Spine Center," said Carol. "Dr. Ransom is just great. After I went through physical therapy, I was back to my jazzercise classes."
Cecelia Ransom, M.D., treated Carol with a variety of conservative approaches, including physical therapy, a back brace and medication. Dr. Ransom said that Carol has a great attitude about her health.
"Dr. Ransom said I have done myself a lot of good by staying active and taking up jazzercise, which has become my passion! I know that I will never be 100%, but the things I learned from Dr. Ransom and at Unity Physical Therapy have made a big difference in controlling my back pain," said Carol. "I'm really looking forward to the new Unity facility at Ridgeway. I am going to start aqua therapy there as soon as it opens!"
