Ex-Marine David Abella was suffering from extreme back pain that was not allowing him to sleep. His doctor prescribed him numerous prescription drugs and sleeping pills. David’s doctor even went ahead and told him to double the amount of sleeping pills he was taking but still he suffered with severe back pain. Prescription drugs and back pain are often associated with one another, but these drugs are extremely dangerous and people need to understand what the effects of taking them can be.
David’s back pain was so severe that walking outside to his mailbox brought tears to his eyes. Most nights he wouldn’t be able to sleep at all. He would be able to doze but could never find the right position to sleep in. Back pain can be a major issue for many who suffer with back pain. With nighttime back pain the pain doesn't stop when a person lies down, no matter what adjustments he or she makes. For some, the pain can be even more intense. And for others, the pain doesn't even start until they lie down.
- “I’m not ashamed to admit I cried. The pain was that severe. A lot of people said, ‘Oh, come on it wasn’t that bad!’ it was worse! It’s something you don’t want. If you ever had this kind of pain you don’t want it. Not when you can’t sleep” David Abella

A friend of David’s referred him to the Illinois Back Institute. When he came in David was on crutches and his left leg was dangling. David’s MRI showed that he was suffering from Stenosis, Sciatica, and Bulging Discs. Often a bulging disc can cause a pinched nerve that will result in arm and leg pain depending on the bulge. In David’s the bulging disc caused a pinched nerve in his leg, which led to his sciatica. Stenosis is a narrowing of the openings of the spine it can occur anywhere in the spine. At the Illinois Back Institute through Functional Disc Rehydration we treat all three conditions. After only 48 treatments David successfully finished the treatment and is now PAIN FREE! He is now living his life to the fullest and continues to do the exercises that he was taught at Illinois Back.
