McHenry Chiropractics Time is Now

OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is McHenry’s chiropractic care hub and is excited to be a part of chiropractic as its benefits for back pain relief grow in recognition. 

The GLOBAL Role of Chiropractic for Back Pain

It is the time for chiropractic! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is excited to offer chiropractic services in McHenry and be a part of this time in healthcare.  Lancet, one of the foremost medical journals, published a number of articles on the disappointing condition that healthcare systems around the globe are managing low back pain. Back pain is an enormous problem everywhere and getting worse. And chiropractic is “perfectly placed to be a major player in providing a part of the solution to the global challenge of low back” providing that its providers put into practice guidelines (like your chiropractor strives to do!) to not order too many x-rays, follow evidence-based care clinical practice guidelines, and keep up-to-date of the latest research (and even participating in research when able!). Chiropractic is known for its role in treating back pain. It needs to find its way into mainstream healthcare to take care of more back pain and neck pain sufferers non-pharmacologically and non-surgically. (1) The World Federation of Chiropractic is developing toolkits for chiropractors to engage with public health communities and be of greater assistance to patients and communities inside the health system as valued partners for their health and well-being. (2) Your McHenry chiropractor at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is grateful for this sponsorship and vision from a world chiropractic organization as that is just what this McHenry chiropractic practice of OrthoIllinois Chiropractic strives to do here in McHenry.

Check out this PODCAST with Dr. Christophe Dean on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about how he integrates Cox® Technic into his McHenry patient care to help decrease back pain.

OrthoIllinois Chiropractic offers the best of chiropractic care options to ease McHenry back pain sufferers’ pain, sometimes with back belts. 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Wear a Back Support

Low back pain patients at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic may benefit from wearing a lumbar support belt. New research reveals that a lumbar support belt doesn’t necessarily cause muscle weakness but rather increases walking distance capability for spinal stenosis patients with intermittent claudication, reduces pain and fear of pain, lessens use of pain medications, and improves muscle strength, flexibility, and activities of daily living. (3-10) All good! Your chiropractor carefully considers when and if to use of back braces for each individual McHenry back pain patient as he or she heals with McHenry chiropractic care, understanding the advantages back braces may provide along the way.
