McHenry Exercise May Be Inspired by Social Interaction & Listening Docs

What inspires you to exercise? Everybody’s different. Pain relief, social interaction, a listening, attentive healthcare provider who’s encouraging you to exercise, feeling like you are heard and understood all help. There is something for everyone! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic works to inspire our McHenry back pain patients to exercise and keep their back pain at bay.


Lumbar spinal stenosis is one frustrating back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it limits their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A research project contrasted three tactics: medical care, community-based group exercise, and clinic based manual therapy and individualized exercise. All the patients shared that exercise bettered their pain levels and function but that these effects were short-lived. They had to keep exercising. The most common reasons for not continuing these activities were additional health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had little to no effect. The community group exercise offered social support and participants continued these classes after the study. These back pain patients stated that the doctor’s ability to relate to them and listen to their concerns were of great importance to them. (1) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic wants to listen, inspire, and see our McHenry back pain patients get McHenry back pain relief with chiropractic care and exercise.


A recent study reported that six weeks of two-times-a-week (more so than one time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy brought about significant short-term improvements in symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2) It comes back to the classic paper by Weber who pointed out that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain responded to active, energetic, non-surgical care. (3) That is what it is all about at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic! Active, energetic management of back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your McHenry chiropractor must go all-in to manage the basis of back pain as well as its symptomatology. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is ready and willing to do just that to help our McHenry back pain patients! Exercise, spinal manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
