John Scheinpflug has been a Chicago firefighter for over 23 years. Being a firefighter John has to do physical activities on a daily basis. Over the years his job has put a lot of wear and tear on his back. Without even knowing it over the years John had aggravated his back. One day he woke up in pain due to a bulging disc in his l5-s1. The pain steadily worsened over time even causing pain to radiate down John’s left leg. John was placed on medical leave because the pain would not allow him to perform his job as a firefighter at 100%.
John saw three or four different doctors but the pain would always come right back.
- “For the same type of injury everyone had a different type of treatment. I wasn’t getting any real answers.” Said John.
After seeing the Illinois Back Institute commercial John went online, made an appointment, came in that Monday and started treatment that day. Before treatment John couldn’t stand up straight, he couldn’t walk for more than 5 minutes at a time, sitting was painful, and sleeping was impossible. For 3 months John couldn’t sleep a full night peacefully. After 36 visits John’s condition improved completely. When he first came in his pain level was a 9-10 constantly everyday and after his treatment John is now at a ZERO pain level!
John was told to have back surgery and get the shots but he saw that those were only temporary fixes. John chose the Illinois Back Institute because they specialized in back pain and decided to give that a try before going to the next level.
- “I’m glad I avoided the surgery. I’m glad I avoided the acupuncture and cortisone shots. The therapy here seems to really be the correct fix.” John.
John is now off medical leave and back to work at the station. He is taking it slow and everyday strengthening his back. Thanks to the Illinois Back Institute John is finally getting his life back.
- “Everything that they have said that they were going to do they have done and no other doctor has done that.” John
- “You will see results! I did see results! And I see other people here that they have seen results.” John
