Illinois Back Institute patient Eva Aveena came into our Countryside Clinic suffering from neck and shoulder pain. The pain started in 2008 and has been increasing since then. Most neck and shoulder pain starts due to muscle strain or any soft tissue strain caused by a sudden force. Without knowing it, you may be putting strain on your neck and shoulder by the way you perform everyday activities.
Eva tried many different types of treatment including medications, three different physical therapists, traditional chiropractors, massages and heat pads. None of these seemed to stop her neck and shoulder pain. Eva was only 50 years old when the pain started and didn’t want to live the rest of her life with this pain. She was unable to do her normal daily activities like sitting at work, keeping up her household or play with her grandchildren. She was very depressed and unsure about her future.
- “I thought, what if I can’t do my job? What if I can’t maintain my household? And the worst part was what if I can’t play with the babies?” Eva Aveena
Eva came into the Illinois Back Institute and started treatment on her neck and shoulder pain right away. She said after her third visit she was already feeling better. Eva now has finished her treatment and feels so much better and is full of energy. Before coming to Illinois Back Institute she always wanted to start her own business but the neck and shoulder pain was holding her back. Now that she is pain free Eva went ahead and started her own business and can’t wait to see what her future holds.
- “My shoulder pain has perfectly disappeared! My neck has no issues at the moment.” Eva Aveena
