On WCIU’s; You and Me This Morning Dr. Jeff bring Illinois Back Institute patient Carmelita Hubbard in to tell her back pain story. Carmelita Hubbard had been dealing with her chronic back pain for over 30 years. She went ahead with back surgery, which made her condition worse than before. Her back pain was so severe that she had been contemplating suicide on several different occasions. All she wanted was peace and no more pain. She had tried many different chiropractors, physical therapists, took pain medications such as Norco and even pain patches. “I tried anything that I thought would make me feel better,” she says.
One day, Carmelita was struggling with her suicidal thoughts. She got down on her knees and prayed to God to show her His way. She told God that she couldn’t do this anymore and didn’t want to be here any longer. After she finished praying, she looked over at her TV and saw information for the Illinois Back Institute.Carmelita’s back pain was being caused by severe degenerated discs, herniated discs, and bulging discs in her spine. Through Functional Disc Rehydration we are able to reverse the disc degeneration and truly provide a stronger, healthier back.
It has been over a year since Carmelita finished her treatment and she is still pain free! “I got my life back!” Carmelita now has a full time position where she can actually work. She can play with her grandchildren again; she is back active in her church. She can also dance and workout as well as many other things that her back pain was causing her to give up.
“Coming to the Illinois Back Institute, you have nothing to lose…except pain of course,” she says with a laugh and smile. “I would say give the Illinois Back Institute a try. If you’re having back problems and you have pain everyday and you think there is no way out…just come to the Illinois Back Institute. It really does work, you can get your life back and it has worked for me.”
