Healthy News from Your McHenry Chiropractor February 2018

McHenry chiropractic at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic includes examination, diagnosis, treatment, and listening! 


McHenry back pain patients are central to our McHenry chiropractic practice. Our McHenry chiropractic patients’ thoughts and expectations are influential in the treatment you get and the clinical result from that McHenry chiropractic care you attain. Research shows that users of mind/body practices (like acupuncture, chiropractic, meditation, massage, yoga in this report) consider that these practices treat, prevent and are more effective than options like drugs. (1) It is useful for all caregivers to understand what their patients are thinking, believe and want. Be sure to tell us! What does a McHenry low back pain patient expect from a healthcare provider? 90% expected an exam, tests, diagnosis, reassurance, advice, clear explanation for their pain, symptom management, and the benefits/risks of treatment. About 50% looked to be sent to a specialist.  About 60% wanted to share life issues. (2) Does that sound like what you want? OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is open to lending an ear to you, talking, examining, diagnosing and treating you for McHenry back pain relief.

Listen to this PODCAST  from the Back Doctors' Podcast series of a patient who expected relief without a back surgery and got it with Cox® Technic.

McHenry chiropractic treatment plan at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic may well include chondroitin sulfate! 

TIP OF THE MONTH: Chondroitin Sulfate

Chondroitin sulfate’s reputation for assisting in the prevention and even potential regeneration of disc cartilage grows. Its anti-inflammatory reputation and effect on osteoarthritis do as well. (OrthoIllinois Chiropractic appreciates seeing the literature reveal this as OrthoIllinois Chiropractic has shared chondroitin sulfate with our McHenry chiropractic patients for years!) It is being proposed as a slow-acting agent in the care of low back pain associated with osteoarthritis. (3) It deters the actions of inflammatory agents connected to conditions like osteoporosis and heart disease. (4, 5) Chondroitin sulfate usage in the treatment of low back pain expands. Let’s talk about its role in your own McHenry chiropractic treatment plan for McHenry back pain relief.
