Assisting McHenry back pain patients attain relief is what OrthoIllinois Chiropractic does.  With such experience and confidence, do better outcomes emerge for McHenry back pain patients at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic? Likely reports a new study. When a musculoskeletal patient expects a positive result from the care he or she is getting, the odds of a positive outcome are increased. What about the fondness for a type of treatment? Does the patient’s or healthcare provider’s inclination  for treatment type impact the outcome? The provider’s does; the patient’s doesn’t as much. Intriguing! The odds of meeting a back pain patient’s expectations for back pain relief increased by 69.3 times when that back pain patient participated in care from a healthcare provider team which strongly preferred the care recommended to the patient. The patient’s preference for a back pain relief intervention method didn’t increase the odds as much (just 29.7 times). It appears that the provider’s influence and preference is more influential than the patient’s preference. (1) Wow! Your McHenry chiropractor is confident that the McHenry treatment plan which likely includes Cox Technic flexion distraction for spine pain, neck pain, and back pain will assist in the relief of McHenry pain patients. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic has witnessed many McHenry back pain patients report immense relief!


Adding non-surgical distraction therapy to the care of lumbar disc herniation assists the back pain relief. Patients suffering with back pain for at least 8 weeks received electrotherapy, massage and stabilization exercises. They did well. Their pain improved, their function restored and their disc herniation thickness reduced. But those patients who also underwent the distraction therapy found more improvement. At the end of their care, clinical and radiological findings were better. The disc herniation reduction was more evident in the patients with distraction therapy added to the treatment plan. (2) That is not surprising at all! OrthoIllinois Chiropractic sees it all the time!


OrthoIllinois Chiropractic takes a multi-faceted approach to back pain reduction.
