What Is A Pinched Nerve?

A pinched nerve in the back is when you suffer from pain or weakened function from a nerve that is under pressure of some sort.

In other words, the nerve is being compressed, and that compression is causing pain in your back. This can happen to nerves that control muscle movements or transmit sensations to the brain.

But what causes a Pinched Nerve? And what are it's symptoms?

Sciatica Stretch of the Week: The Calf Stretch

The Sciatic Nerve is the largest nerve in the human body and is about as wide as a thumb. It travels from the lower spine down through the legs and all the way down to the foot.

Because of that, Sciatica pain can cause numbness or even soreness in the calf.

The Calf Stretch can help relieve the pain present in the calf due to Sciatica.

Allen's Herniated Disc Was Preventing Him From Doing Activities Of Any Kind

Allen entered our office looking for relief for his back pains. As it turned out, he had a very large Herniated Disc. Like most Herniated Disc patients, he had tried Physical Therapy and did not get any better with those treatments.

He then decided to try injections but his pain was still bad. Suddenly, the only option Allen thought he had left was surgery.

He had heard about the Illinois Back Institute from his coworker, and was hoping we could help him with his condition.
