We live in a culture of sitting. We sit at our desks at work. We sit while travelling by car, or bus, or plane. We sit at the dinner table. We even sit while relaxing such as when watching TV or reading a book. In fact, some may even say that sitting has become a requirement in our lives. And all of that sitting can be hurting your back!

Case Study #201 - After 15 Years of Back Pain, Danielle Freeman Can Run and Play With Her Kids Again Thanks To Our Treatment
Danielle's back pain first started 15 years ago as a result of her running. She first started running at the age of 12, and she had been a competitive distance runner from high school through college and even afterwards. She thinks all of that running had a cumulative effect on her back pain. She had been suffering with back pain since she was just out of high school, and had already gone to see several doctors for help, but their treatments were ineffective. She was in constant pain now and was looking for any way to help relieve it. So she decided to give the Illinois Back Institute a try.
