I came to Chicago Neck and Back Institute because I had an accident at work. I work for a new car dealer and a customer referred me to Dr. Cicero, which is how I found him. The service he provided is excellent I am very happy there. I've been to three or four different chiropractors whose offices didn't seem to have the professionalism that Chicago Neck and Back Institute does. No matter what time of day or evening it is Dr. Cicero and the staff go out of their way to make you feel better and to let you know that they are available whenever you need them. Chicago Neck and Back Institute does take all types of insurance. I have recommended Chicago Neck and Back Institute to my friends and others.

I came to Chicago Neck and Back Institute because of the reputation Dr. Cicero and his staff has in the neighborhood; I have been a patient of Dr. Cicero's for 18 years. The first time I saw him was for numbness in the legs and spine dislocations. He adjusted my neck and shoulders. My wife is also a patient as she has medium to severe back problems – scoliosis. I have recommended many people to him including weightlifters, bodybuilders, policemen, and other city workers. No matter what time it day or night it is if you need Dr. Cicero all you have to do is call him he will call you back and you'll see you the next day. His staff is very professional and will go out of their way to make sure you're comfortable during treatment.

I came to Chicago Neck and Back Institute about 15 years ago due to pain going down the back of my leg to the sciatica. I was referred by a girl that I worked with. Dr. Cicero did an evaluation along with x-rays so they can see with the problem was. He looked at what the issue was and then figured out a way to help me. As a patient, you have to be cooperative and do the exercises that you're has to do; in a way it's almost like going to your regular family physician, as you have to follow the doctor's advice whether you like it or not. Dr. Cicero alleviated my right leg pain. I have recommended others I know to Chicago Neck and Back Institute. The staff is also very professional along with being friendly and caring. They really do treat you like an individual.

I came to Chicago Neck and Back Institute based on a referral from my HMO. I had spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease. I had also seen a neurologist. I went to see my doctor and he suggested that maybe I should see a chiropractor which is how I first became a patient of Dr. Cicero's and staff. I was first evaluated, had x-rays, and an MRI. After Dr. Cicero obtained results from the test he informed me of what they wanted to do next; so I had heat treatments, electrical stimulation, and for a while I wore a small back brace, then exercise and finally traction for my spine. It was also discovered that there was a bulging disc pressing on a nerve root that went to the outer part of my right leg and Dr. Cicero was able to figure it out. To date I haven't seen anyone else except Dr. Cicero. I have referred others I know to Chicago Neck and Back Institute. Once I am done with my traction I plan on being able to get into my regular routine.

I came to Chicago Neck and Back Institute for severe back pain; I could barely walk and breathe at the same time. Dr. Cicero performed an evaluation on me, he then informed me of what type of treatment would be needed in order to get better. At first I did not like his response as I felt it was time consuming. During the process of treatments I began to realize that he was right; I also spoke with other patients who were going through similar exercise techniques. They basically all agreed that you have to do what needs to be done. I am 100% better; I have also recommended Dr. Cicero to others.

I am a policeman for the city Chicago. I heard about Chicago Neck and Back Institute through one of the guys I worked with as I was having pain in my upper and lower back. Dr. Cicero did an evaluation on me, figured out the problem and then we discussed the course of treatment we were going to do in order to relieve my pain. The treatments worked quite well. As far as I'm concerned Dr. Cicero and his personnel are unequalled. The staff at Chicago Neck and Back Institute are professional and they go out of their way to help you no matter what it is. As far as waiting for the physicians to call you back promptly Dr. Cicero is on top of it. I have referred others to Chicago Neck and Back Institute.

I came to Chicago Neck and Back Institute through my mother's referral. When I was approximately 12 years old I was diagnosed through Suburban Pediatrics that I had a slight back problem. My mother was concerned because back problems are common to my mother's family along with scoliosis. It was decided that I should go to Chicago Neck and Back Institute for further evaluation. Dr. Cicero performed an examination on me along with x-rays, through both examination and x-rays I was diagnosed with a mild case of scoliosis. Treatment was exercising and yes I looked forward to being in the room with all the exercise equipment. It was cool. I was at Chicago Neck and Back Institute two hours a day three days a week along with my mother who stood beside me while I was working out. She highly recommends Chicago Neck and Back Institute for anyone who has concerns about their backs or the whole body. In no time I was back to my normal routine.

I suffered with migraines for years prior to being referred to Chicago Neck and Back Institute by my mother-in-law. It was during the tests Dr. Cicero had ordered and reviewed that it was discovered that I had three ruptured discs in my neck and a ruptured disc in my lower back; through the treatment I received from Chicago Neck and Back Institute all the ailments I had when I first became a patient have now been resolved. I found the staff to be very courteous, caring, and quite knowledgeable.

I came to Chicago Neck and Back Institute for the first time about six years ago because of severe back problems. My PCP (Primary Care Physician) referred me to a surgeon, which I refused to do because I wanted to see a chiropractor first since it was non-invasive. I was then referred to Dr. Cicero. He performed a thorough exam along with x-rays and an MRI. After reviewing all the tests and consulting his notes he was able to pinpoint my injury to the exact location. He then provided the treatment plan of electrical stimulation, with traction to follow. As everything progressed he also gave me exercises to strengthen the muscles especially core muscles. I was able to return to work with no restrictions. I was back to my old self without having surgery done. The staff explained to me each step they were taking so that I would understand what they were doing. Chicago Neck and Back Institute has more than one on one treatment. Dr. Cicero takes his time and listens. I have recommended Chicago Neck and Back Institute to several people I know.

I came to Chicago Neck and Back Institute because of back problems and pain along with a referral from a friend. Dr. Cicero took the necessary time to evaluate and explain what he thought was the problem and what the process would be to try to get there; then there were x-rays and after that an MRI. What Dr. Cicero found was that I had a rupture in my lower back by the fifth lumbar (lower back). We decided on the treatment plan which included electrical stimulation and traction to start. I also had a couple of the epidurals, he then started me exercising to stabilize my back and I was able to avoid surgery. I saw my PCP (Primary Care Physician) about three months later, he examined me, and he decided I should stick with the therapy and instruction by Dr. Cicero. I have since then recommended five other people to Chicago Neck and Back Institute.

Chicago Neck and Back Institute was recommended to me by a friend of mine as I had a car accident several years ago, which left me with numerous numb feelings in the hands, legs, neck and face. Dr. Cicero first took the time to evaluate me and take x-rays in order to figure out the best way to proceed with treatment. During this time he also solved the problem that I had to which my family physician had missed completely for five years. I had acid reflux. I had tried every stomach medication in the though nothing seemed to work. Dr. Cicero sent me for some additional tests at the hospital; the results came back that I had an infected gallbladder. It was removed. In about four or five weeks later I felt better than I had in years. I do recommend Chicago Neck and Back Institute to others all the time.

I came to Chicago Neck and Back Institute for pain in my lower back and since then have seen him on and off for the past 15 years. He's recently been assisting me with a degenerative knee problem using different anti-inflammatories, ultrasound, and therapy. Dr. Cicero and staff explained the steps they take in treating the patient so that everybody is on the same page. I have recommended Chicago Neck and Back Institute to others on many occasions.

I came to Chicago Neck and Back Institute due to a 1998 car accident I had been involved in. Dr. Cicero performed a complete and thorough evaluation on me including x-rays. After he had received the test results he explained to me what needed to be done. He was successful in alleviating the pain; and 2002 I saw him for a slipped disc. Dr. Cicero and his staff started therapy on me, which included exercising. He also informed me that I had weakness in my hand though I wasn't aware of it – I was surprised. We discussed the situation in an effort to figure out the best way to proceed with treatment. The problem has gotten better with exercise. What makes the exercise more convenient is that the exercise facility is right there so that there is any problems Dr. Cicero is notified immediately. I do highly recommend Chicago Neck and Back Institute to everyone.

I came to Chicago Neck and Back Institute after being involved in a car accident. I was first sent to an Immediate Care Center then proceeded to Dr. Cicero office where I was more thoroughly examined and x-rayed. Dr. Cicero explained the steps needed to be taken in order to alleviate the pain. I have since been treated for other problems including numbness in my hand and a disc problem, which also have been resolved. At Chicago neck and back Institute they take time to see you, listen to what you're saying, and it's plain what needs to be done in order to feel better. I highly recommend Chicago neck back Institute to everyone.

I was suffering from sciatica pain in January and realized I couldn't deal with that anymore so I went to see Dr. Cicero at Chicago Neck and Back Institute. I was evaluated and x-rayed. He discussed the results of the tests with me and we proceeded from there as to how to go about relieving the pain. He advised heat treatments, with some electrical simulation as well as exercising. I have since returned for other problems, which have been solved to my satisfaction. I highly recommend Chicago and Neck and Back Institute.

I was referred to Chicago Neck and Back Institute by a friend of mine after being involved in a car accident. I was having sharp pains in my left shoulder and chest area; I was also having sharp pains in the lower back. I then started having numbness and tingling in the lower portion of my body. Dr. Cicero and staff did a thorough examination on me including x-rays. The treatments Dr. Cicero recommended included heat treatments, adjustments, and ultrasound with electrical stimulation treatments. Chicago Neck and Back Institute has a workout facility which is under care and guidance from Dr. Cicero and staff, they have traction machines on site, as well as an area for x-rays. I have highly recommended Chicago Neck and Back Institute for everyone I know.
