Program Overview

The program breaks down into three phases. Pain Mitigation, Damage Repair, Strengthening. 

In the first phase all treatments and therapies - and homework deals with getting the patient out of acute pain as quickly as possible.  It is important in this phase to go easy in therapy and at work or home. Avoid any movements that might be even slightly uncomfortable.  Don’t try and stretch your way through an injury.  Rest, ice & heat in alteration, and do nothing to further insult the injury. 

In the second phase we will start to create the solutions needed to help create damage repair, proper alignment of structure with muscle and soft tissue interaction. There will be movements and treatment the therapist will ask to be continued outside of the therapy sessions to accelerate the repair process. However, the loss of immediate pain does not return you to fully normal activity to put undue stress on the injured area. This is a time of rebuilding and realignment.

Once the first two phases are complete we will work with you to strengthen the damaged area and its surrounding support structure to help prevent future injury or  damage to the area of focus.


Program Comparison

There are many programs out there that deal with back pain and injury. However, outside of a full surgical solution, ours is the only program based on clinical research with peer reviewed publications to support its empirical evidence of success experienced by over 95% of our patients.

The following chart shows a result comparison to all of the other major back program modalities, and the results provided by that course of treatment.


Modality vs. Result




Cost Comparison

Our program is more cost effective compared to the only other long term solution, Surgery.  Typical disc surgery will range from $20,000 with insurance and $50,000 uninsured (citation: 2020 report).  This does not include the pharmaceuticals (short and long term), braces, walker, or the $2,500 in projected post-op Physical Therapy.


Also there is usually a minimum of 2 weeks downtime (7-8 days off work) followed by a 8-16 week post-op recovery time. 


Our total program is five to six thousand dollars, that is usually 75% less than surgery, and is three times as effective. Our program requires no pharmaceuticals, no mechanical aids, and no down time during treatment. Total treatment time, including strength training, is usually less than 8 weeks.


What to Expect

In short, great results. The program is relatively easy, quick and provides permanent results. The cost comparison to surgery - the only other permanent solution -  is very favorable as is the total recovery time, the reduced risk factor, and the results are 95% compared to surgery that has a 30% success rate. It is also worth noting that our program returns you to a pre-injury state of mobility and function which surgery seldom is able to do even with extensive physical therapy post op. We also are a non-pharmaceutical solution reducing that risk cycle as well.


Intake session to set up your treatment program

On your first visit we will take a patient history and discuss treatment options, and choose the best program plan for your treatment.  We will then schedule you for an included medical evaluation with the best practitioner to meet your needs and begin your treatment.  45-60 min.


Medical Evaluation and Therapy Designation

On your second visit you will be seen by a medical practitioner who will do an in-depth evaluation of your challenges, go over past treatments, discuss injuries and review your overall physical state.  A custom program will be tailored to meet three primary goals 1) short term pain relief 2) correcting the root issues 3) long term stability to keep you out of pain.  60-90 min.


Initial Pain Relief Protocols

The next series of appointments will be to work on pain relief and evaluate various protocols to provide you the most effective treatment to meet both short term and long term goals. 3 to 6 60 min treatments.

NuBack Institute Therapy Circle of Care

NuBack Institute offers a unique and highly effective approach to the treatment of back pain.  It incorporates very specialized equipment and a variety of protocols that are clinically proven to be effective and long term.  In concert with our multi-discipline approach that includes aspects of physical therapy, chiropractic, bio-mechanics, massage, acupressure, acupuncture, diet and lifestyle guidance, physical fitness, balance and mobility and much more.


The Basic Steps

This program represents the framework for our successful back pain solution.  However every patient and every injury is unique.  But we do see immediate results in pain reduction, and most patients experience permanent solutions quickly. 


Chiropractic Evaluation with Posture Mapping

Defines Your Posture, Measures Postural Lean (Forward/Negative), Measures Lateral Curves, Measures Symmetry, Light Treatment and Alignment as needed. 

Physical Therapist Evaluation & Testing

During your initial evaluation, your physical therapist will ask you several questions about your condition, previous level of function and how is your present condition affecting the way you live. The initial evaluation is necessary for your PT specialist to understand what you are dealing with and create the proper program within our cycle of care.

Additional Components

These additional disciplines may be used as needed throughout the cycle of care as determined by your primary practitioner to augment and speed your recovery.


Biomechanics & Deep Tissue Release

Your muscles have a memory.  Some good, and some detrimental to your recovery and progress.  Often your muscle memory will fight treatment as we try and help your body relearn proper functionality. Biomechanics and deep tissue release deals directly with these issues, releasing the memory to allow for the muscles to relearn their function and place in a healthy system.  This is also used to straighten and loosen fascia and break up scar tissue that may hinder recovery and proper healing.


Massage Therapy

Reduced muscle tension

Improved circulation

Stimulation of the lymphatic system

Reduction of stress hormones relaxation

Increased joint mobility and flexibility

Improved skin tone

Improved recovery of soft tissue injuries


Modern research has demonstrated acupuncture's effects on the nervous system, endocrine and immune systems, cardiovascular system, and digestive system. By stimulating the body's various systems, acupuncture can help to resolve pain, and improve sleep, digestive function, and sense of well-being.



This program, unlike any other physical therapy program, is based on scientific and clinical research and is a proven long term solution to back and spinal issues.  It is based on published research and can be found on PUBMED at


This research can be found under the title: “Comparison of 2 Multimodal Interventions With and Without Whole Body Vibration Therapy Plus Traction on Pain and Disability in Patients With Nonspecific Chronic Low Back Pain”  (See summary to follow)


It is also empirically proven by the results we have achieved for our patients over the years. 


Our program, if followed, will provide quick pain mitigation, proper repair - including the treatment of herniations and other debilitating injuries historically addressed with surgery - and provide a long term solution without the need for ongoing pharmaceutical support or intervention.


It is both time & cost effective with clinically proven long term results.

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this secondary data analysis was to compare the effect of 2 multimodal exercise-based physical therapy interventions (one with and one without whole-body vibration [WBV] therapy plus traction) on pain and disability in patients with nonspecific chronic low back pain (NSCLBP).

METHODS: We conducted a secondary analysis of data from 2 distinct samples. One sample was from the Focus on Therapeutic Outcomes Inc. (FOTO) group (n = 55, age 55.1 ± 19.0 years), and the other was the Illinois Back Institute (IBI) (n = 70, age 47.5 ± 13.4 years). Both groups of patients had NSCLBP for more than 3 months and a pain numeric rating scale (NRS) score of ≥7. Both groups received treatment consisting of flexibility or stretching exercises, core stability training, functional training, and postural exercises and strengthening exercises. However, the IBI group also received WBV plus traction. NSCLBP was measured before and after therapeutic trials using the NRS for pain and Oswestry Disability Index (ODI).


RESULTS: The NRS scores were significantly improved in both groups, decreasing by 2 points in the FOTO group and by 5 points in the IBI group. The ODI scores were significantly improved in both groups; the FOTO group score improved by 9 points and the IBI group improved by 22 points.

CONCLUSIONS: The results of this preliminary study suggest that NPS and ODI scores statistically improved for both NSCLBP groups receiving multimodal care. However, the group that included WBV therapy plus traction in combination with multimodal care had greater clinical results. This study had several limitations making it difficult to generalize the results from this study sample to the entire population.
