This week's Sciatica Stretch is the Hamstring Stretch! It is extremely important to have adequate hamstring flexibility so that you can improve your body mechanics and posture. If your hamstrings are too tight, it can alter those mechanics and affect your Sciatica pain.
Much of the back pain that people suffer with is caused by not lifting objects correctly. One of the main ways this occurs is because people lift things immediately after getting up from a relaxed or prone position. Doing this can be very bad for your back. Too much activity after prolonged periods of sitting or lying down can result in back pain and potentially serious back problems.
Car accidents can be devastating to not only the car but also the person inside the car. Debbie knows that all too well. She was involved in multiple car accidents and her back was suffering because of it. Her doctors told her that a herniated disc and a bulging disc were causing her back pain. Thinking surgery was her only option, Debbie went under the knife for a fusion spine surgery. Unfortunately the fusion didn't work and she was still in pain.
At the Illinois Back Institute, we have a lot of patients who come to us for treatment because they want to avoid surgery. These people have been suffering with chronic back pain, and often their primary care doctor may tell them that surgery is their only option. The most common type of surgery for back pain is fusion surgery, where they use screws and a rod to fuse two vertebrae together with the hope that doing so will end the patient's back pain. But, there are many dangers of such a procedure.
At the Illinois Back Institute, we want to educate as many people as possible about their back pain and sciatica, because it has been proven that the more that you understand your problem, the more likely you are to eliminate it. This is why we regularly hold Free Educational Seminars at our clinics! At these seminars, you can learn all about your back, neck, and sciatica pain and how to eliminate it!
