I wrote a blog the other day about a patient. Her name was Fay and she had complete elimination of her herniated disc as a result of our treatment. The one aspect of the blog that may be a bit odd is that she was a patient in 2007. So why have a story about a patient from 2007? Because Fay was our first patient ever that we were able to identify, using MRI, that we could completely eliminate herniated discs with our treatment.
I referred to this as the start of our revolution for back care. I feel that we have done some things that will start to change how the world treats chronic back pain and most importantly how we treat herniated discs. To better understand how this has happened you really need to know the story of how it all started.

I went on a journey to meet with professionals, M.D.s, Chiropractors, Physical Therapists and anybody that was treating severe back pain. On this journey I was my own guinea pig. I would perform the treatments on myself and identify what made me feel better and what made me feel worse. In the end I did more of what made me feel better and eliminated the things that made me feel worse. I slowly got better and eventually got 100% better. To this day I have 0 pains and I am able to do anything I want without pain.
“Once you have chronic back pain the world kind of shrinks. You have to pick and choose what you can or should do. I knew it was only a matter of time before I would have to go under the knife. Then my wife told me about Dr. Jeff and I was able to avoid the knife. He has unique techniques that I have never seen before. I am no longer constantly thinking, 'can I do this,' I just do it because I am pain free.” Dan Hampton #99
Kevin Butler had a fusion surgery in 2001 and was still experiencing intense pain in his back when he came in to see us after his surgery.
“All my years in the NFL caused me chronic back and neck pain. One day I woke up and couldn’t even walk due to my spine collapsing. I turned to surgery and I got a spinal fusion, but I never fully recovered from it. Then I met Dr. Jeff, the founder of the Illinois Back Institute, and I was fortunate enough to receive treatment. With Dr. Jeff’s innovative, non-invasive treatment I have been able to fully recover and get my life back.” Kevin Butler #6
Steve McMichael, former NFL player, 1985 world champion and College Hall of Fame.
“How much pain do you think I have lived with? I had constant pain in my neck and back, at one point my back pains were so bad I had to buy a motorized scooter to get around. I couldn’t do anything. Then I met Dr. Jeff, and shortly after starting treatment for the first time in a decade I walked a mile on the treadmill pain free. Now I can enjoy watching my little girl grow up and I can enjoy my life.” Steve McMichael #76
Our success with really complicated back and neck pain patients including herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica, and failed back surgery syndrome led to the decision to perform a study. We determined that the best way to truly and definitively identify what was happening to the spine during our treatment was to do a study using MRI.
After consulting with a PhD researcher from a major Pac-12 University we decided that we were going to look at the nucleus of the disc and try to identify if we could get any changes.

We have successfully treated from the minor bulging discs all the way to the major herniated discs. Recently I created several videos about some big herniations and Allen Gill is one of them.

Also, recently we heard from Charlene who canceled her surgery to give us a try and her herniated disc was even larger than Allen Gills's. She may have the largest. Her story told in her own words is below.
Charlene Saved from Surgery and eliminated a Massive Herniated Disc.
To accomplish this process known as functional disc rehydration we perform specific unweighting techniques in conjunction with very specific exercises. This is all done without the use of any drugs or surgery, and it doesn’t hurt.
In the past, medical literature said that you couldn’t rehydrate a disc and you couldn’t eliminate herniated discs, conventional therapies really struggle to get these conditions better. If you are using the conventional therapies and not getting better it can be a slippery slope.
If you have a herniated disc and you are not getting better you should watch the following.

So the revolution started with Fay and continues with hall of fame football players and soccer moms and kids and dads and everybody that has suffered without any options till now. So I want to say thank you to all the above patients that have helped us start our revolution. If you have pain and want to change your world and live pain free call us today.
