Much of the back pain that people suffer with is caused by not lifting objects correctly.

While helping to move a dishwasher out of the house, Raj suffered a back injury that lead to severe pain and sciatica. It caused numbness down the leg that was so intense that he could not walk or stand, and most of his days consisted of him laying in bed. In fact, he was taking 1000 mg of painkillers every six hours because the pain was so bad. Raj didn't want to have surgery, and was looking for other options when he found the Illinois Back Institute.
