Hi Dr. McGill,
I trust that this e-mail finds you well. You assessed my wife just a little over a year ago for a back injury she sustained while out of country with subsequent MRI upon our return to Canada revealing a L5-S1 disc protrusion. You were kind enough to find time in your busy schedule to see her and give her numerous exercises/strategies and I thought I would give you the latest update on her progress.
Prior to my wifes injury she was an avid runner. I am happy to share with you that she is again running which makes her extremely happy (it makes me happy to see her happy) so I wanted to thank you because back when you assessed her she said you were one of the few people that gave her hope. She continues to do her exercises daily and they are now part of her daily routine.
Thanks again for everything, my wife and I are extremely grateful that you were able to assess her and give her the strategies that have allowed her to return to running and given her the confidence in her back health through her pregnancy.
