Dr. Jerrold Smith had been suffering with a herniated disc in his back since early November. Due to his job as a dentist Jerrold is bent over all day in straining position, which caused a herniated disc in his back. Activities that are done over and over again can cause stress in your spine leading to a herniated disc. Twisting and turning can cause some of the nucleus out through the disc's outer layer. The pain was so severe that occupationally he could not function. Jerrold thought he was going to have to retire early.
After going to see numerous doctors that all suggested he go ahead with surgery Jerrold spoke to his son who is a Physical Therapist. Jerrold’s son suggested he give the Illinois Back Institute a chance before going under the knife. He came in with a pain level of 10. After coming in for his free consultation Jerrold started therapy right away. Jerrold love the treatment and felt a difference. Not only was he feeling better daily but he enjoyed coming into treatment saying it was a “friendly atmosphere” to be in. Jerrold also appreciated how the employees put him as their number one priority. Jerrold is close to the end of his treatment and is now PAIN FREE! He is back to work and excited to continue with his passion in dentistry.
- “If you really want to be healed and be made whole and not have surgery I would highly recommend the Illinois Back Institute as an option for you.” Said Dr. Jerrold Smith
