 McHenry chiropractor-patient benefits are numerous and especially apparent to episodic migraine sufferers.


McHenry Migraine Sufferers Know

A new study of women with episodic migraine treated with comprehensive chiropractic care underscores the benefits of the chiropractor-patient relationship for maximal clinical outcomes. The women (a) shared that they were more aware of how musculoskeletal pain, tension and posture triggered migraine, (b) altered their view of chiropractic as just spinal manipulation, and (c) found the chiropractor/patient relationship to be indispensable and valuable in managing their migraines successfully. (1) That is chiropractic’s forte! Chiropractors like yours at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic take the time to clearly explain the painful condition to our patients. We want to be sure our McHenry chiropractic patients know what is going on to boost their participation in its relieving care. The best clinical outcomes result from a great partnership of in-office care and at-home care, of chiropractor treatment and communication skill and patient participation and cooperation. Whether migraines are your issue or back pain or neck pain or arm pain or sciatic leg pain is, we at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic are your healthcare partner to contain the pain.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Jeremy Heidt on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he describes his use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to help a neck pain and migraine sufferer to pain relief.

McHenry hip fracture risk is decreased by multivitamin supplementation.

Take a Multivitamin to Reduce Fragility Hip Fracture

Hip fractures are a severe issue for healthcare systems and their patients globally. A meta-analysis of over 80,000 subjects – 21% male, average age 69 years of age – reported that multivitamin use was significantly associated with a decreased risk of suffering a fragility hip fracture. Multivitamin use was significantly protective against osteoporotic hip fracture. (2) This is positive news for McHenry chiropractic patients worried about hip fracture because they are likely already taking a simple multivitamin instead of taking a lot of single ones. Reducing McHenry hip fracture risk may result from supplementing with a multivitamin daily!
