Mike Testimonial

Mike Was Trying Everything To Get Rid Of The Pain Caused By His Herniated Disc

Five years ago Mike injured his back while picking up his newly born son. The back pain would be on and off over the years, until it recently became much worse.

The doctor ordered an MRI that showed he had a herniated disc. He was set up with some physical therapy, steroids and a shot in his back, but none of these treatments seemed to help.

When Mike first came into the Illinois Back Institute his whole left leg was numb from the knee down. His goal was to get back to being healthy.
