Herniated Discs & Bulging Discs In Neck Treatment – Chris Hallenberg

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Thu, Mar 21, 2013 @ 03:11 PM

Around 2 years ago Chris Hallenberg went on a trip to Wisconsin to enjoy a nice day out at a water park. While on a water ride it malfunctioned and as he went down a large drop the raft capsized and Chris impacted a wall. The hit felt like a car crash. After the accident his neck and back has never been the same.

The accident caused a herniated and bulging disc in his neck at c4-5 and c5-6. This caused Chris to suffer from constant pain in his neck and upper back. After the accident Chris was having numerous issues other than just neck pain. He was having trouble with his vision that was causing intense headaches right behind his eyes. He was waking up 3-5 times every night because the whole right side of his arm would go numb due to the impingement on his spinal cord. Chris also suffered from intense itching on his wrist and arm that was caused by the nerves that connect to his vertebrae being injured. Daily he was feeling pain, numbness and tingling and needed to find a way to stop the pain.

New Call to action 
Chris began to self medicate but after seeing a doctor and his MRI he decided to pursue the Illinois Back Institute. Through Functional Disc Rehydration we were able to focus on Chris’s cervical herniated disc and bulging disc. After the first few weeks Chris’s vision was completely restored! There has been a huge improvement in his range of motion in his neck. Chris is back to sleeping throughout the night without any pain or numbness. His pain level has dramatically decreased & he has gained more strength in his neck and right side of his body. The itching caused by the injured nerve has completely stopped.

Chris still has more days in treatment but before this testimonial he was able to take a look at his updated MRI and compare it to his first MRI. Chris said, “As they say seeing is believing it! Not only do I know that I’m on the road to recovery and feeling better but when I saw the 2 images there was a definite, although not fully cured as of yet, but a definite reduction in the herniation of my disc!”
