The Illinois Back Institute's Back, Neck, And Sciatica Pain Relief Newsletter
The Illinois Back Institute is proud to send out some of our best tips and informational articles about back pain and sciatica, because it's proven that the more you understand about your 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!
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, November 15th at 4PM! 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 Lower Trunk Rotation Stretch! By doing the lower trunk rotation, you will be increasing flexibility in your lower back and hips, which will allow for greater mobility and rotation in the spine.
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!
About 7 years ago while Kathleen was crossing the street she was hit by a car. After the accident she had a MRI done that showed she was suffering with a bulging disc. Over time the pain increased and her MRI recently showed she now had 3 bulging discs with 2 of them on the right side. Kathleen came to IBI for help.
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?
