With seven children and 14 grandchildren, Dr. Ray and Judy Lyle hoped to spend a lot more time with family after retirement.
But struggles with pain threatened to make the Ridgeland couple’s retirement a sedentary one.
“We adore our grandchildren,” Judy said. “I couldn’t get on the floor to play with them. Pain from my back caused so many other pains, any time I tried to do anything it hurt.”
“I had a lot of aches and pains I was dealing with too,” said Ray, who was a longtime Starkville pediatrician.
Searching for relief, the couple found an answer at Methodist Pain & Spine Center in Flowood. There pain management specialist Dr. Bruce Hirshman recommended the latest non-invasive procedures combined with a physical therapy regimen to address their issues.
Today both Ray and Judy are living pain-free.
“I simply am a new person,” Judy said. “It’s really given me my life back.”
