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, January 17th at 12 PM! 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 Abdomen Stretch, AKA the Sphinx! This stretch is going to help stretch your abdominals while also assisting in pushing a bulging disc back into place. This is a manual way to try and decrease your sciatica symptoms that are being caused by a disc bulging onto a nerve.
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.
Danielle is a physical education teacher who also coaches track and cross country at her school. She first came to us after seeing one of our commercials, and she thought, "What the heck?" 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.
As we age the discs in our back can wear down and lead to back pain, which then can lead to Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD). Degenerative disc disease usually occurs in active and healthy people who are in their thirties or forties. Some people with deterioration have no pain and do not become of aware of the condition until they go in for a check up or other health problems occur. This can occur in any level of the spine, which leads to localized pain.
