About Illinois Back Institute
Illinois Back Institute (IBI) was formed to promote the unique Functional Disc Rehydration® (FDR) protocol founded and developed by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer, D.C. The Illinois Back Institute now has a proven, time-tested and study-tested protocol to rehydrate spinal discs and a proprietary marketing system that can revolutionize the way back and neck care is administered, worldwide.
What is Functional Disc Rehydration®?
Developed and TRADEMARKED by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer, D.C. and the Illinois Back Institute, Functional Disc Rehydration® is an effective, non-invasive, non-surgical, drug-free back pain treatment that actually reverses disc degeneration and truly provides a stronger, healthier back. It’s a simple approach to making the back healthier without surgery, injections or medications.
The goal of Functional Disc Rehydration® is to take pressure off of vertebral discs, allowing oxygen and nutrients into a disc’s nucleus. Together with FDR, various exercises, treatments and techniques are done to reintegrate and reactivate the muscles by strengthening and stabilizing the spine. The correct combinations of these elements together constitute the overwhelmingly successful Protocol for IBI.
An epidural is used to treat inflammation of a herniated disc by an injection of the steroid cortisone into the spine. Although your body creates cortisone naturally, the chemical in the injection is synthetically produced and its effects last for a number of days rather than minutes. Another difference is that while natural cortisone arrives through the bloodstream, the synthetic chemical enters directly to the inflamed area.
