Your Five Best Tips Of The Week For Relieving Back Pain

Every week, Illinois Back Institute sends out five of our best back pain tips, stretches, diet tips, case studies, and informational articles. This week includes a tip about the right way to stand at your sink, one of our best stretches to help with Sciatica pain, a case study about a man who was suffering from back pain and sciatica until he came to us, an article showing why IBI is different than other back pain treatments, and some invaluable resources!


Back Pain Relief Tip: The Correct Way To Brush Your Teeth or Wash Dishes At Your Sink!

Almost everyone has to stand in front of a sink at least once a day, and most do twice or more. The most common reasons for this are to brush your teeth over the bathroom sink, or to wash dishes in the kitchen sink. Because of this, it is no surprise that two of the complaints we hear most often from people suffering with back pain are: "My back always hurts when I brush my teeth!" and "I can't wash dishes for more than 10 minutes before my back pain becomes excruciating!"

sciatica_stretches_2-1.jpgSciatica Stretches Tip #2 - Piriformis Stretch

Tip #2 for Sciatica stretches is the Piriformis Stretch. The piriformis is located in the buttocks region. The piriformis muscle runs close to the sciatic nerve so it can irritate the nerve and cause sciatic pain. When the piriformis muscle becomes tight and/or inflamed it can irritate the sciatic nerve. This can lead to a tingling and numbness that runs from the lower back all the way down the leg and even into your foot.

Case Study #140 - After More Than 10 Years of Back Pain and Sciatica, 64 Year Old Man Is Pain Free After Our Treatment

A 64 year old male presented to our clinic with back, leg and foot pain (sciatica). He had been experiencing the pain for over 10 years. When it first started, the pain was just in his back and he felt it was not a big deal, just one of those things you "deal with". But as the years went on without proper treatment, the pain got worse and worse and started slowly moving down his legs until it reached into his feet. Now the pain was nearly unbearable and was affecting his day to day life.

What Makes Illinois Back Institute Different Than Standard Back Treatment?

At the Illinois Back Institute we get asked a lot of questions from people who want to know more about us. Of course, they want to learn more about Functional Disc Rehydration and how it works. But aside from that, one of the most common questions we get asked is some variation of, "What makes the Illinois Back Institute so much different or better than the standard treatment my general practitioner and other doctors might prescribe?" The answer to that is simple; it's because the Illinois Back Institute is a group of doctors, all on one team, who work together to treat each and every patient.
