Fredrick Stenson started suffering from back pain 4 years ago. Fredrick immediately went to a doctor and got an MRI. His MRI showed that he was suffering from a bulging disc in his lower back and cervical spondylosis. The pain continued to get worse and worse Fredrick ending up leaving his job and retiring early.
Fredrick then decided to go to a pain specialist and a neurosurgeon who both recommended he start doing physical therapy. So Fredrick went to physical therapy for about 6 months, which helped, but not a lot. He was still suffering from back pain daily. After physical therapy Fredrick went to a chiropractor for about 5 months, which was once again helpful, but the pain was still there. After all that Fredrick went to a Naprapath for almost a year. There he was told that his problem was degenerative and there was nothing they could do to completely stop the pain. They told him if he continued to come they could lower his level of pain but there would always be some pain that he would have to live with.
After seeing a commercial for the Illinois Back Institute Fredrick decided to give it a try. Everything sounded good and he had nothing else to lose. Through Functional Disc Rehydration we were able take the bulging disc in his lower back and relieve the pressure off the disc and allow the nutrients to flow back into the disc. And with our additional therapies we were able to strengthen Fredrick’s spine and reactivate the muscles and discs that were once causing pain. Fredrick can now get out of bed without any pain. He is now able to get on the treadmill and jog for 30 minutes when before he couldn’t jog at all! He is back to living his active life style. “My pain levels have gone down to a zero! I’m not in any pain anymore!” Fredrick Stenson
