The Illinois Back Institute knows that the more you understand about your back, neck, and sciatica pain, the more likely you are to eliminate it. The tips and informational articles in this newsletter can be extremely useful in helping to relieve that pain!
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!
If you suffer from back, neck, and sciatica pain and want to know more about it and how we can eliminate it, we are having a LIVE webinar this coming Wednesday, February 28th at 12 PM! It is extremely useful for helping people to begin their journey to being pain free. The best part is you can join the webinar from home, at work, or even on your smartphone anywhere that you have wi-fi!

Our sciatica exercise for this week is the Hamstring Foam Roll Massage! Hamstrings can become extremely tight while compensating for one’s posture, and this can often place a severe strain on the lower back. This stretch will promote more blood flow to the area to increase the healing. It also increases extensibility of the hamstring muscle.
Many people spend most of their days sitting in a chair. Whether it is at home, work, or while traveling, people are sitting more than ever before. The problem with this is that the way you sit and the way you get up out of a chair can cause stress on the spine, which could be leading to back pain!
Elizabeth heard a sound in her back that no one wants to hear: her discs popping. She had herniated multiple discs in her back and was in a great deal of pain. For ten years Elizabeth suffered with her back pain. She tried more traditional forms of physical therapy and they helped but she could never get the pain to go away. More importantly she was missing out on something she loved: riding her bicycle.
This week Chef Bill decided to prepare something he learned while in culinary school down in Louisiana: White Bean, Sweet Potato, And Pepper Ragout! The ingredients in this French stew not only include healthy and anti-inflammatory foods, but with only a couple minor changes it can also be eaten by those observing Lent. Plus it's simple to make and tastes delicious!
