87% of the people old enough to drive in the United States have their licenses. So it goes without saying that Americans are spending plenty of time in their cars.

Car accidents can be devastating to not only the car but also the person inside the car. Debbie knows that all too well. She was involved in multiple car accidents and her back was suffering because of it. Her doctors told her that a herniated disc and a bulging disc were causing her back pain. Thinking surgery was her only option, Debbie went under the knife for a fusion spine surgery. Unfortunately the fusion didn't work and she was still in pain. After the surgery she tried spinal injections and more traditional therapy but nothing was helping. Finally Debbie found the Illinois Back Institute.
