OrthoIllinois Chiropractics October 2017 Healthy Newsletter



McHenry knee pain is a pain that OrthoIllinois Chiropractic sees a lot. Pain medications and surgical procedures are plentiful while a new non-surgical chiropractic treatment is showing good results. Principles of Cox® Technic flexion distraction and decompression - a technique used in clinic all the time for McHenry back pain and neck pain relief - were amended for use with knee pain. They proved successful in relieving knee pain. Overall, the mean pain scores for knee pain patients fell from 7.7 to 1.8 on a 10 point scale with 10 being the worst pain in a mean of 5.3 visits over 3 weeks. More specifically, acute knee pain patients’ pain scores dropped even more from a mean of 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8 treatments in 2.4 weeks. Chronic knee pain patients’ scores fell from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks. None of the patients had any adverse reactions. (1) It's gentle, relieving, and comfortable.  Listen to a PODCAST by the author of this paper about his clinical experience in treating knee pain. This is an exciting addition to OrthoIllinois Chiropractic’s McHenry chiropractic care! McHenry knee pain sufferers are welcomed to experience this gentle, relieving McHenry knee pain treatment!


McHenry CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Strengthen the Hip Abductors

We all can benefit from stronger hip abductors, and McHenry older folks gain even more. A new article states that people with chronic low back pain typically have hip abductor weakness, too. (OrthoIllinois Chiropractic agrees as this pairing is seen often in this McHenry chiropractic practice.) A simple series of hip abductor exercises helped reduce pain and improve function in a group of older chronic low back pain sufferers. (2) Easy! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic will share some hip strengthening exercises you can do in the convenience of your own home along with the McHenry chiropractic spinal manipulation with Cox Technic in office to get such relief yourself.
