"I had a surgery around 8 years ago, I thought that I had finished recovering, when four years ago my back pain knocked me to the floor. I couldn't move, my family called the ambulance. At the hospital they gave me a series of steroids in order to simply walk and stand. Before coming to IBI I went to a different chiropractor, but their treatment was too basic, I wasn't making any progress. I heard of IBI through a commercial late one night, I thought 'what could I lose?' So I signed up for a free consultation. Now I don't have any back pain and the numbness in my leg is gone." Nick has been with IBI for the past couple of months and has made dramatic recovery, now he's working on removing the numbness from his foot, but that being said he's completely pain free!
