About Jeff Winternheimer
A noted chiropractor based in Chicago, Dr. Jeff Winternheimer developed a breakthrough treatment for back pain to patients at the Illinois Back Clinic. The practice serves patients in Wheaton, Countryside, Orland Park, Berwyn, and Arlington Heights. The therapy, Functional Disc Rehydration, works by introducing moisture into dehydrated discs and restoring them to an optimal, fluid-filled condition. Dr. Jeff Winternheimer's treatment can relieve the pressure and pain caused by degenerated or herniated discs.
After Dr. Jeff Winternheimer created the Functional Disc Rehydration technique, he sought to verify its success through a formal study conducted by a Pac-10 university. The 2007 study included more than 50 patients with chronic back pain ranging in age from 39 to 83 years old. They all previously tried traditional chiropractic treatment, medications, and surgery. The patients in the study also tried alternative methods such as acupuncture prior to receiving the treatment developed by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer.
Before the study began, a noted radiologist commented that Dr. Jeff Winternheimer?s Functional Disc Rehydration method seemed to be a good idea. The study results confirmed this opinion, with every patient experiencing a disc rehydration of at least 18 percent following the initial treatment. Dr. Winternheimer's method resulted in 80 percent rehydration of the disc after 10 weeks of therapy and complete elimination of bulging and herniated discs in each participant, with all results confirmed by MRI scans taken before, during, and after treatment.
Patients interested in receiving Functional Disc Rehydration therapy from Dr. Jeff Winternheimer may contact the Illinois Back Clinic for a free, no-obligation consultation. During this appointment, Dr. Winternheimer assesses the patient's pain and the underlying causes to determine if this groundbreaking treatment is the best course of action.
