Dr. Nick Andriacchi
Before coming to the Illinois Back Institute, surgeon Nick Andriacchi had tried other forms of treatment, even going so far as trying laser therapy to relieve his pain when he wasn’t getting any better. No other form of physical therapy was working and he didn’t want to try pain medication, knowing the side affects could cause grogginess, something that could further hinder his ability to perform medical procedures. “I like to be at the top of my game for whatever I do,” he says. He thought his only other option would be surgery, until he came to the Illinois Back Institute.
