Elyse Mills-Fletcher was suffering from constant back pain and multiple back spasms. Some of the spasms were so severe she would drop to her knees. The pain started in 1990 when Elyse was in a 6-vehicle collision. The accident was so bad that she was lucky to get out alive but ever since then her back has not been the same. After the accident her MRI showed she was suffering from arthritis throughout her whole spine, bulging discs, herniated discs, stenosis and a congenital deformity. Elyse was in constant pain. She was having trouble sitting, reaching for things, washing the dishes, doing laundry, pretty much anything that involved reaching and bending.
