Competitive power lifter Bobby Martinez suffered with severe back pain for the past 3 years. The pain was so intense she could hardly get out of bed or even walk. Bobby thought she was going to spend the rest of her life in a wheel chair.
Bobby’s doctors said her best option would be to go for the surgery. After doing research on surgery Bobby decided surgery was not for her.
Bobby spent many years in Europe competitively lifting. All of those years of lifting put a huge strain on her back. When she came into the Illinois Back Institute her MRI showed degenerative discs and herniated disc. (More on her MRI in an upcoming blog) Herniated disc can result from an injury, or other trauma to the back, such as heavy lifting. A degenerative disc is what happens if there is loss of fluid in the disc, which decreases the ability for it to act as a shock absorber and allow for spinal flexibility.
At the Illinois Back Institute we were able to treat Bobby’s degenerative disc and herniated disc with our innovative treatment Functional Disc Rehydration. Functional Disc Rehydration is the first treatment to actually reverse disc degeneration and truly provide a stronger, healthier back without the use of drugs, injections or surgery.
Bobby Martinez finished her treatment at the Illinois Back Institute and now feels fantastic! “I was at the point where there were no other alternatives and I probably should’ve came a lot sooner. I can definitely tell you that this is something that works.”
