Surgeon Saved From Surgery at Illinois Back Institute
Dr. Nick Andriacchi has been an ankle and foot surgeon for over 20 years. He loves what he does as a surgeon and doctor. He has also been to many different countries doing medical missions work. As a surgeon, he is constantly leaning over for numerous of hours, which took a huge toll on his neck and back.
- For the past 5 years, Dr. Andriacchi was struggling with severe neck and back pain, which would cause numbness and tingling in his right hand.
Before coming to IBI, Dr. Andriacchi tried laser treatments as well as many different stretches and exercises with no improvement. He didn’t want to try pain medication, knowing the side affects could cause grogginess. “I like to be at the top of my game for whatever I do,” he says. His only other option he thought, would be surgery.
- Dr. Andriacchi was diagnosed with stenosis in the C4/C5 and bulging disc in the L1/L2 lumbar area.
One day, Dr. Nick Andriacchi was having severe neck and back pain. The pain was so severe that it was causing numbness and tingling in his right hand. With more surgeries to do that day, Dr. Andriacchi pushed back his surgeries and took a few hours off to go get treatment at the Illinois Back Institute.
- After his treatment with IBI, Dr. Andriacchi was able to go back to perform the rest of his surgeries without a problem.
