We Were His Last Option Before Fusion Surgery...

Posted by Illinois Back Institute on Thu, May 25, 2017 @ 05:02 PM

A few years ago a patient came to us for help with his severe back pain and sciatica. Although he had only had the back problem for a year, the pain had already become excruciating. In fact, when asked what his pain level was on a scale of 1 to 10 he said it was a 10, so it was obvious that he was in extreme pain. He desperately needed help, and made the right choice to come to IBI to get it!


Before coming to see us the patient had gone through several of the standard treatments for back pain. First he went to physical therapy, then when that didn't help he saw a chiropractor, and then he ended up getting two cortisone injections in his spine. But none of them could relieve his pain. His next option would be fusion surgery, but he wanted to give our treatment a try first.

When he came to us we examined his MRI and determined that his back pain and sciatica were being caused by a Bulging Disc and Degenerative Disc. We also tested him on the Oswestry Disability Index to determine how much his pain was affecting his life. He scored a 48 which indicates a level of Severe Disability, meaning that the pain was having a negative impact on most aspects of his day to day life.

After his testing was complete we were able to being treatment right away. He responded to therapy well and was able to be discharged after 34 treatments. We tested him again on his last day: his ODI was down to a 12, which is considered normal, and his pain level was all the way down to a 1! Two years after completing therapy we contacted the patient to follow up on how he was feeling, and the patient was happy to report that both his back pain and ODI were at a ZERO!

Our unique treatment was able to relieve his back pain and sciatica where others couldn't! We can help you too!


At the Illinois Back Institute we strive to educate people as much as possible about their back, neck, and sciatica pain, because it has been proven that the more people know about their pain the more likely they will be to get rid of it!
