CHICAGO, April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Jeff Winternheimer of the Illinois Back Institute has developed a revolutionary non-surgical procedure to alleviate back pain. Both professional athletes and everyday back and neck pain sufferers have been flocking to his four Chicago area clinics to see for themselves.
When a disc begins to degenerate it loses all of its interior fluid and becomes dehydrated, causing extreme pain. Up until now it has been impossible to mend or rehydrate the discs in your back and return them to their normal state, but Dr. Jeff has found a painless, surgery-freeway to make it happen.
Functional Disc Rehydration is an innovative procedure that reverses disc degeneration and makes your back healthier and stronger. It relieves the pressure on the disc and allows nutrients to flow back in, simultaneously strengthening and reactivating the supporting muscles of your back. This makes your back and spine stable once again and alleviates all of your pain. Patients receive treatment that takes the pressure off their discs while they are walking, sitting and lying down. The Illinois Back Institute provides additional therapies to maintain good posture and strong muscles.
The results were proven in a recent formal research study formulated by a biomechanics scientist at a PAC-10 university, patients aged 39-83 participated to see just how effective Functional Disc Rehydration could be, and the results were remarkable. After just one treatment all patients experienced disc rehydration of at least 18%, and long-term results of 10 weeks showed 80% rehydration.
Dr. Jeff, a Chicago based chiropractor and founder of the Illinois Back Institute, faced years of research to put an end to his own excruciating back pain (which stemmed from a frivolous college stunt in 1988), and has helped thousands of people avoid spinal surgery and live pain free by reversing the effects of Sciatica, Stenosis, herniated discs, bulging discs and degenerative disc disease. This treatment has proven so successful that Coach Mike Ditka's Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund has teamed up to offer Dr. Jeff's treatment to retired NFL legends facing some of the most complex of back and neck injuries.
