Illinois Back Institute's Best Back Pain Relief Tips Of The Week
Each week the Illinois Back Institute sends out some of our best tips and informational articles about back pain, because it's proven that the more you understand about your back pain, the more likely you are to eliminate it!
The Illinois Back Institute treats and eliminates back pain, by focusing on the cause of the pain. And we do it without any drugs, injections, or surgery! Some of the conditions that we treat include:
▪︎ Herniated Discs
▪︎ Bulging Discs
▪︎ Degenerated Discs
If you are suffering with back or neck pain, either from one of these conditions or something else, we can help! Your first step is to schedule a Free Consultation, where you will meet with a Patient Advocate who will answer your questions, review your case, and determine your correct course of treatment.
There is no obligation, and the consultation is completely free!
Did you know that Illinois Back Institute goes Live on our Facebook page several times each week? During these videos we discuss topics such as educational information about back pain and sciatica, some of our patient outcomes, questions that people might have, and more!
Our sciatica stretch for this week is the Foam Roll Massage For The Piriformis Muscles! This stretch is going to increase the extensibility of your tissue and promote more blood flow to the target area, which will in turn promote more healing. It is also good for your balance.
This may be hard to believe, but exercise can actually help to relieve your back pain. Although some people assume that performing a physical activity with a back injury will only make it worse, this is usually not true. It is often times one of the best things you can do for your pain!
There are some jobs that you have to be in top condition for at all times, and that includes having a healthy back. Peter Cruz's job as a police officer is one of those. But one day Peter slipped on a patch of ice, and ever since then he suffered from chronic back pain. He found that the pain not only affected his ability to do his job, but it also changed his life at home. It was hard for him to say no to his kids when they asked to play. His wife feared that his back would buckle on him while at work, which would be the worst time. He knew he needed to get help, so he came to the Illinois Back Institute.
This week's Diet Tip of foods that are good for your back health is Green Tea! Green Tea is filled with all kinds of compounds and nutrients that are not only beneficial for your back, but also for many other parts of your body as well!
