Tracking Outcomes: Case Study #3 - Male With 15 Years Of Back Pain and Sciatica

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Mon, Feb 08, 2016 @ 05:19 PM

I recently travelled to the Harvard Business School to discuss how to better serve our patients through the publishing of patient outcomes. It is our belief that by publishing these outcomes, patients will be able to identify what is the best course of action to take to treat their conditions. As a result, we are going to be publishing our catalog of over 3000 patient outcomes one-by-one, so that our patients can better understand the outcomes for the conditions that we treat.

Back Pain Relief Tip: Move Around and Stay Active! (with Video)

Posted by Illinois Back Institute on Mon, Feb 08, 2016 @ 05:12 PM

We live in a culture of sitting. We sit at our desks at work. We sit while travelling by car, or bus, or plane. We sit at the dinner table. We even sit while relaxing such as when watching TV or reading a book. In fact, some may even say that sitting has become a requirement in our lives. And all of that sitting can be hurting your back!

The fact that our society has become one that sits more and more is one of the reasons that the number of people suffering with back pain has increased dramatically. It goes without saying, sitting for a long period of time can be bad for your back. But for many people, there is really not much of an option; because they need to sit to drive to work, and then sit at their desk all day, and then drive home. Sitting is unavoidable for them. So this week's Back Pain Relief Tip is simple: get up and move around more!

Making Better Decisions Regarding How To Treat Your Back Pain and Sciatica; Lessons Learned From Harvard

Recently I made a trip to the Harvard Business School, where I joined a group made up of 70 of the top minds in the Medical World to attend a series of lectures and meetings about the state of health care in America. The main objective of these lectures and small group meetings was to discuss how to better serve our patients through the publishing of patient outcomes. In our healthcare system it is very difficult for patients to identify what is the best course of action to take to treat their conditions, because providers don’t have to publish the outcomes of their treatments.

Back Pain Relief Tip: Lift The Right Way!

Knowing the correct way to lift can help your back in several ways; most importantly it can prevent back pain. The biggest mistake that people make is that they lift objects using only their back. This puts a tremendous amount of pressure on the back and can lead to muscle strains and disc problems such as a bulging or herniated disc. The goal is to not flex forward with your spine while lifting.
