Karin Evers was in a horrible auto accident that put her in a coma. The accident also caused 17 broken ribs, and a broken hip, knee and pelvis. The accident was so bad that she has no memory of it. After Karin recovered she started to treat her injuries with physical therapy and chiropractors. Even with the therapy she still was in a lot of pain in her back and neck.
In 2012 Karin decided to go through and have back and neck surgery. At first the surgery was a success but after a while her neck and back started to bother her again. Then, last fall, Karin got up and was in so much pain that she couldn’t even walk to her mailbox. Karin saw our ad on television but still wasn’t sure so she came into our Orland Park office to see it for herself. At first she thought it was another Physical Therapy department but after speaking with the staff she realized it was way more than that. “It was a long commitment of 36 visits but I said ok I’ll do it and I’m glad I did do it,” said Karin.
Karin’s MRI showed that she was suffering from a herniated disc and spinal stenosis. When she first started treatment her pain level was an 8 out of 10. She had loss in mobility and was having trouble turning her head, which made it impossible for her to drive. The pain was controlling her life.
Karin has almost finished her 36 treatments at the Illinois Back Institute and her pain level is now at a ZERO! She is now able to do the things she wants to do like cooking in the kitchen, go on walks, and go to the grocery store and more. “I just wanted to get rid of some of this pain and I did do that so I did complete my goal,” said Karin.
After treatment at Illinois Back Institute Karin now knows she will no longer need surgery, shots or drugs to live a pain free lifestyle. Karin recommends that anyone with neck and back pain to give Illinois Back Institute a try. You have nothing to lose!
