Anthony's Herniated Disc Pushed Him Off Of His Football Team

Posted by Illinois Back Institute on Wed, Jun 20, 2018 @ 02:45 PM



       Anthony was a kicker on his college football team. His pain started in his lower back, nowhere else in his body. The team doctors had told him that he had a disc problem. For a few years he was rehabbing that disc problem, which actually made it worse and the pain moved up into his neck as well. After this, it was only a matter of time before he had left school in Ohio and came back to live in Chicago.

       The pain was so bad that he didn’t even play football his 4th year of college. So, what is it that makes our treatment different than the one that made Anthony's problem worse? Well, it’s not just physical therapy that we offer here. We also had chiropractic and traction. Anthony, for one, knew this was the place for him from the get-go, based on the fact that we attack the issue in so many different places.

       Now, don't get us wrong, this does not happen overnight. It takes effort to get the desired results. But if you do what you are instructed to do, you'll get better, you'll stay better, and you'll know what needs to be done to keep you healthy and pain free!
