Chicago Doctor Revolutionizes Chronic Back and Neck Pain Treatment

Dr. Jeff Winternheimer’s Functional Disc Rehydration is Changing Lives

CHICAGO, April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — 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.

Illinois Back Institute Joins Mike Ditka’s Gridiron Greats Medical Program in Chicago

NORTHBROOK, IL, Feb 15th, 2011 — Dr. Jeff Winternheimer and team at the Illinois Back Institute, in cooperation with the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund (GGAF), are announcing the expansion of valuable medical services to retired players of the National Football League (NFL) in Chicago and across the country.

As the Chairman of the Board for the GGAF, Mike Ditka says the organization’s mission is to assist retired NFL players in dire need of medical services for a variety of reasons, including inadequate disability coverage and pension benefits. “Our mission has been and will continue to be to help those former players and their families going through difficult times. The need is great. We welcome and are blessed to add Dr. Jeff and the Illinois Back Institute to our family of providers, as they have four extraordinary facilities in the Chicago area.”

The Illinois Back Institute joins a growing portfolio of facilities offering pro bono medical services to GGAF members in need of a number of procedures such as chronic back and neck pain treatment and physical therapy for past injuries. Some of the former NFL players receiving assistance were pioneers of the sport — yet unable to financially support their medical needs due to the high costs of necessary treatment and inadequate private and public funding. By enlisting the support of partners Dr. Jeff Winternheimer, GGAF is able to provide no-cost, quality healthcare to hundreds of clients annually, for services ranging from everyday pain management therapy to breakthrough treatments like Dr. Jeff’s  Functional Disc Rehydration protocol that rid NFL Hall of Fame legend Dan Hampton  of chronic back pain, and NCAA Hall of Famer and Super Bowl Champion Steve “Mongo” McMichael’s debilitating neck injuries.


President of the GGAF, Shannon Jordan believes the work the Illinois Back Institute is doing says a lot about the institution, the doctors and their team. “They are willing to step up and help us fill this unquestionable need. We are truly grateful. These are remarkable people helping remarkable people who have slipped in society. Our collective goal is to get these great men and their families back on their feet.”

Committed to providing retired NFL players with the basic human services they need, GGAF offers a broad range of services including medical, pharmaceutical, housing, food, and clothing. To support its programs, the organization relies solely on corporate and private donations generated through sponsorship, special events, sports memorabilia auctions, autograph sessions, and public drives.
