Chronic lower back pain - pain that has been with you for a long time - puts a crimp in the lifestyle of young and old alike. The average age for back
surgery in men is 37.9 years of age and in women 45 years. That's young! Leg pain due to a back condition is a more
prevalent factor for the surgery. (1) But surgery is not the only answer for chronic lower back pain. It may be just a bump
in the road of chronic back pain if a plan isn't designed to control it. But back
pain plagues McHenry residents who haven't had back surgery, too. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is here for any lower back
pain sufferer - chronic, post-surgical or acute - seeking relief.
Now, the first step in dealing
lower back pain is to avoid it. A healthy lifestyle that includes exercise, activity, nutrition,
diet, weight control, rest, and even chiropractic can help. However,

OrthoIllinois Chiropractic's goal is pain relief, just the same as yours. We use spinal
manipulation and therapies for pain relief and suggest rehabilitation to help you maintain the relief.
- Spinal manipulation is effective for the treatment of chronic non-specific lower back
- Rehabilitation is vital to re-coordinate the pelvic motion for walking and running and
prevent future episodes of pain. Just one bout of back pain puts you at risk! (2)
Long-term benefit from chiropractic spinal manipulation for lower back pain relief comes when spinal manipulation is
continued after the pain is gone. Researchers note that untreated patients revert back to their usual pain without it. (2)
