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!

This stretch will promote more blood flow to the area to increase healing. It also increases extensibility of the hamstring muscle.
