June Employee Of The Month: Dr. Michelle Perisic D.C. For The Illinois Back Institute

Posted by Illinois Back Institute on Mon, Jun 11, 2018 @ 01:18 PM

The employees at the Illinois Back Institute are constantly working hard and striving to provide the best care and customer service that they can for their patients. Their determination, hard work, and high performance on a daily basis is the key to Illinois Back Institute's success!

Many of our employees often go above and beyond their regular duties to help their patients and/or coworkers however they can, and we feel that they should be recognized for their outstanding work. Our Employee of the Month award does just that, and the winner is nominated by their fellow co-workers.

Our Employee of the Month for June is Dr. Michelle Perisic D.C. from the Orland Park clinic! She will be receiving a certificate of achievement and a gift card. In her acceptance Dr. Michelle shared her thoughts:


Q: How does it feel to be nominated and selected as the Employee of the Month by your coworkers?
A: I am honored to have been nominated and selected Employee of the Month by my coworkers. It is very heartwarming and I'm grateful to work amongst such wonderful people!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: A few things! First of all, I love my team. They are hard-working and compassionate people who have such a positive outlook and energy. They are supportive and make the clinic a fun place to be! I also love being able to turn patients' lives around. I have worked with many people who come to us as a last resort. They feel down-trodden and hopeless, living in a constant state of pain. With our unique therapy, our positive energy and spirit, and our continuous encouragement, we are able to change the way they think and feel, and truly give them their life back. It is very humbling to see a patient come in crying tears of sorrow and leave crying tears of happiness.
Q: What's your favorite thing to do outside of work?
A: Spending time with my family and friends, and traveling. I enjoy exploring new places (especially if there's food involved)!
Q: What has been your proudest moment while working at IBI?
A: My proudest moment so far would be being promoted to protocol (clinic) director of IBI!
Q: Any plans on how you'll spend your gift card?
A:  I would like to take my team out to a nice lunch, maybe buy them some goodies (I didn't say cookies...ok!?)  :-)

At the Illinois Back Institute we strive to educate everyone as much as possible about their back pain and sciatica, because it is proven that the more people know about their problem the more likely they are to eliminate it!

Why You Need To Do Everything You Can To Stay Away From Opioids

Posted by Illinois Back Institute on Tue, May 08, 2018 @ 01:45 PM

 One of the things that I do every day is I look at news

     or scientific information about back pain. And I like it somebody said that’s not a lie, but I really do like it. And I came across a study they did they evaluated patients they were chronic opioid users. And this is a very important topic in our culture right now, because the use of opioids is reaching epidemic proportions. And I found it interesting, so I'm going to share some of this data with you, again because I like it. So here we go, there were 122,00 deaths globally in 2015 from opioid use. 120,000, that’s a lot. There is currently, in 2017 in the United States there were 35,000. So, it’s going up. And we've talked about it in the past, its going up dramatically.

When I Do Squats, My Back Pain Increases. Is That Okay?

Posted by Illinois Back Institute on Wed, May 02, 2018 @ 03:30 PM

     This question came up twice on YouTube, one time on Facebook, and one time in my webinar, it’s a more common question recently. I don't know why but it is, but the question is "When I do squats, my back pain gets worse." Why is that? Or is that okay? One of the things that I preach is that if you have a bad back, squats are some of the best exercises you can do because if you have a bad back, you need tom activate and strengthen your gluteus. Which are your primary movers, and very important stabilizers of
your spine, so if you have weak gluteus, very often you will perpetuate a back problem. So, I tell patients to do squats. Now there is a time when squats can make you worse. Now I'm going to explain a little bit about the spine and why you can make it worse but not everybody has this problem, everybody is a little bit different and there are certain types of hips that will actually make you more prone to having back problems when you do squats but there is a way to avoid it. I'm going to show you why and I'm going to show you how you can avoid it or what you can do. The one thing you have to be aware of. This is my back. I had a severe back problem, I never have pain, but I have severe pain for years and years. And I couldn't do squats, I couldn't do anything because it hurt so bad.

What Are The Main Causes Of Sciatica?

Posted by Illinois Back Institute on Mon, Apr 16, 2018 @ 05:09 PM

Many people have heard of Sciatica, especially if they have ever suffered that pain before. But people often don't know what sciatica is. When experiencing sciatica pain it's vital to know as much as you can about it, so that you will be better able to relieve the pain and prevent it from returning!

When discussing the topic of Sciatica, it's important to remember that it is actually a symptom of a more serious issue, and in order to successfully treat sciatica you need to target the cause of the pain.

There are 5 main causes of Sciatica, and because they are all related to the spine it is very important that we first know what the spine is and how it works. In our experience with treating Sciatica, the outcome of the treatments improves when the patient completely understands what is causing their problems. And it is important to know all about the spine because then you will be better prepared to treat it.
