Sciatica Stretch of the Week: Piriformis Stretch

Our sciatica stretch for this week is the Piriformis Stretch. The piriformis muscle runs close to the sciatic nerve so it can irritate the nerve and cause sciatic pain. When the piriformis muscle becomes tight and/or inflamed it can irritate the sciatic nerve. This can lead to a tingling and numbness that runs from the lower back all the way down the leg and even into your foot. It is very important to stretch the piriformis muscle if you are suffering from sciatica.

Back Pain Relief Tip Of The Week: When Lifting, Do It The Right Way!

Previously we have discussed that one of the main ways that people hurt their backs is while lifting things, and one of the most common ways is due to the fact that people are not patient when lifting. They try to lift something heavy immediately after being in a relaxed state, and end up hurting themselves. This tip is about another common way of causing back pain while lifting, and that is because people are not doing it correctly!

Raymond Testimonial 600x240.png

Illinois Back Institute Was Raymond's Last Chance Before Surgery

In 1984 Raymond Smith injured his back on the job. Raymond started going to numerous doctors to find a solution to his back pain, and he was prescribed pain medicine and given cortisone shots. Raymond’s MRI showed he was suffering from a herniated disc and degenerated disc disease, and his doctors recommended that he go ahead with back surgery. He wanted to avoid that, so when he saw a commercial for Illinois Back Institute he decided to give us a try.

What Are The Three Types Of Exercise You Should Avoid If You Have A Herniated Disc?

Anyone who is suffering with a Herniated Disc knows just how terrible and painful they can be. When a disc herniates, it can press against nerves in the spinal canal. This can lead to a few different nerve related symptoms, including muscle weakness, numbness, and of course severe pain. Most people will do just about anything to relieve that pain; this can mean something simple such as taking pain pills like ibuprofen, or often times by doing exercises to increase mobility and flexibility in the back. But, are the exercises you do the correct ones?
