Illinois Back Institute's Top Tips Of The Week For Back Pain And Sciatica Relief
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!

When a person experiences back pain of some sort, one of the most simple ways of treating it is to apply heat or ice to the injured area. It can be very effective, and it is very easy for anyone to do at home. However, it is also one of the most misunderstood therapies in back pain treatment, because many people do not know when it is best to use ice instead of a heating pad, and vice-versa
Jonathan was suffering with a Bulging Disc, and his pain was so bad that he had to stop playing sports, something that he loved to do. Eventually the pain made it hard for him to even walk normally. Whenever he did walk he was either using crutches or he would need someone to help him. Jonathan was trying everything from traditional therapy to steroid dose packs and pain killers. To him they were all a waste of money as they did nothing to help him. Thankfully Jonathan came to the Illinois Back Institute.
Inflammation is a huge contributor to back pain and sciatica. It can cause any number of symptoms which can directly effect your back's health. Many people have chronic inflammation and suffer these symptoms for years without knowing why, when often times a simple change to what they are eating could reduce their inflammation and help decrease not only their back pain and sciatica but the other symptoms as well!
