Not Feeling Understood About Your Back and Leg Pain? Older McHenry Back Pain Sufferers Are At OrthoIllinois Chiropractic.

 “My chiropractor gets it. My McHenry chiropractor understands how this back pain and sciatica have troubled my life. My McHenry chiropractor is assisting with the relief of the back pain and leg pain, so I can live my life again.” OrthoIllinois Chiropractic listens to this all the time! McHenry back pain and leg pain patients of all ages  and particularly our older McHenry back pain patients who have sought help from many other doctors with no relief. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic helps reduce back pain and leg pain gently and effectively with Cox Technic.


Experiencing back pain or leg pain (sciatica) when you are older is unique compared with a time – like most things in life – when you experienced back pain or sciatica as a younger person. There is a range of types of sciatica patients – those who have mild leg pain to those with high pain, disability and timeframe of having it. Researchers found that most improvement for pain and disability occurred in the first 4 months for all. At one year, 45% (mild) to 27% (high pain/disability) of the patients described recovery at one year. (1) Sciatica affects about 25% of us. Typical descriptions are of lower limb pain that is more bothersome than the lower back pain. Numbness and motor weakness may also join the leg pain. The usual care options are pain medications of all kinds from NSAIDS to opioids without much proof for their benefit. Further, most clinical trials for these meds for managing the pain of sciatica don’t include older people. (2) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic offers a non-drug option for older adult back pain and leg pain that has research support for its utilization and documentation of its value for that life-changing experience of back and sciatic pain.


Patients describe to researchers that “It has changed my whole life.” “It” is chronic low back pain which is back pain that persists beyond 3 months. Specifically, a recent article explains that back pain sufferers articulate that it harms their sense of self, causes them to feel like they are trapped in a body that just will not work any longer, complicates family relationships, keeps them working in pain, and makes them feel socially and recreationally repressed. (3) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic has witnessed this throughout its years of caring for McHenry back pain. Back pain disrupts life. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic offers hope with its Cox Technic system of spine pain management. Often, OrthoIllinois Chiropractic hears from McHenry back pain patients that just 50% relief would be really very gratifying, permitting them to return to their lives.
