This last spring I had a return appearance to lecture on spinal stenosis to the Highland Park Senior Center. I have given a similar lecture at the Lake Forest and Lake Bluff Senior Center as well as the Highland Park Senior Center in the past.
The lecture packed the room at the Highland Park Police Department with approximately 60 people in attendance. It was a very lively group of individuals many of whom had been patients of mine in the past.
The message of this lecture is very important and it is as follows:
My goal was to make the Medicare patients wary consumers of medical procedures with regards to symptomatic spinal stenosis. The Highland Park seniors were sharp and receptive. The overall response to my lecture was favorable and the attendees seemed to absorb the information I presented quite well. As both a chiropractic physician and a physical therapist, I feel that this message is very important from a public health perspective.
I know that I reached my audience because not only did some of them become patients at North Shore Spinal & Sports Rehabilitation, but I even got a call from Chicago by a woman asking where she could find good conservative care for her spinal stenosis. I was able to find her a chiropractic physician well versed in the management of spinal stenosis.
This was my most gratifying lecture on this topic to date, and I look forward to more of these engagements in the future so I can continue to spread this very important message.

North Shore, Dr. J and the staff were great. I started out with a pinched cervical nerve which was causing extreme pain and numbness in my arm. Surgery had been ruled out by the neurosurgeon after an MRI. My physical recommended a regimen of physical therapy which I undertook with NorthShore in November. At that time I had consistent pain in the range of 8-9 out of 10. I had trouble sleeping, driving and performing most normal daily activities due to the constant pain. I have now been through two series of physical therapy sessions with North Shore over a couple of months and the pain and numbness are completely gone. Based on my experience I would highly recommend North Shore for physical therapy treatment and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful as a bonus! Jon HeintzelmanJonathan Heintzelman
All aspects of the rehab program were done with professionalism. Intake evaluation, exercise program, massage therapy and exit evaluation were all excellent and yielded excellent results for me. All of the staff are friendly and efficient. Dr. Johnson, Jeannette, Cyprian and Mary are friendly and make an otherwise difficult experience much more tolerable. I have gone to them on two occasions over the last several years for different injuries and, in both instances, my problems were resolved. I highly recommend them.Lee Eddy
I was a patient 6 years ago, with lower back pain and herniation. My PT was excellent and I was back to exercise and resolution of pain and herniation. Recently I have had hip pain and and tingling down my leg. My evaluation with DR Johnson was very thorough and spot on. The PT with Dre was incredible. I am now pain free with a resolution of the tingling as well. I will definitely return for any future problems that may arise!Barbara Bank
