This Week's Back Pain And Sciatica Relief Newsletter From The Illinois Back Institute
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!
Our sciatica exercise for this week is the Hamstring Foam Roll Massage! Hamstrings can become extremely tight while compensating for one’s posture, and this can often place a severe strain on the lower back.This stretch will promote more blood flow to the area to increase the healing. It also increases extensibility of the hamstring muscle. The foam roll also massages your sciatic nerve because it runs close to the hamstring muscle.
Getting out of bed is something that almost everyone does on a daily basis. It seems simple enough for most people, but anyone who is suffering with back problems know that even the tasks that seem the easiest can be some of the most challenging. For people with back, neck, or sciatica pain, just getting out of bed can not only be difficult, but extremely painful.
