As previously announced, Mike Ditka, a three-time Super Bowl champion and 11-year coach of the Chicago Bears, will serve as brand ambassador to drive awareness to the facilities, each of which will be rebranded as a Mike Ditka IMAC Regeneration Center.

“We look forward to welcoming the staff of Illinois Spine & Disc and Progressive Health and Rehabilitation to IMAC, and to entering the Chicago market where we see opportunity for our self-insured and corporate partnerships division,” said Matthew Wallis, IMAC’s Chief Operating Officer. “We believe we can improve the consistent patient visits and procedure volume through our regenerative medicine products and our non-surgical treatment approach to sports and orthopedic injuries.”
