CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--There is a path to pain free living for the estimated 1 in 4 Americans suffering chronic, non-specific low back pain according to new research on outcomes for Illinois Back Institute patients conducted by Gianni Maddalozzo, PhD and published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine.
“We have a scientific program that has been found to be very successful in eliminating the most severe back pain without drugs or surgery,” said medical director and pain specialist Pratiksha Trivedi, MD. “We want people who have failed to find relief to know they don’t have to live in pain any longer.”
The research, published online, shows people suffering chronic nonspecific low back pain can avoid surgery and addictive painkillers with the Illinois Back Institute’s integrated protocol consisting of flexibility exercises, core stability training, functional training, postural exercises and strengthening exercises. Notably, Illinois Back Institute’s patients showed twice the improvement as the standard evidence-based treatment protocol – moving candidates for surgery to normal function within 3 months.
“In short, we go to the sources and causes of the pain,” said Institute CEO Jeff Winterheimer, DC. “The core of the Illinois Back Institute treatment for sciatica, stenosis and other causes of persistent, debilitating back pain relies on our ability to unweight back and do exercises at the same time.”
Illinois Back Institute’s integrated protocol includes an intensive schedule of therapy supported by a pain specialist and includes a range of tools including traction and Whole Body Vibration while avoiding drugs, surgery or injections.
“Solving for lower back pain requires a patient’s time and effort, but remains accessible as we put all the providers under one roof,” said Winterheimer. “We’re seeing great outcomes, and it’s important to remember that every patient is different. Illinois Back Institute is committed to customized therapies and education that create permanently pain free lifestyles.”
The Illinois Back Institute is a specialized clinical organization dedicated to managing back pain through innovative, non-surgical and natural treatment methods. The organization has clinic locations in the greater Chicago area and is a member of the American Pain Society and the International Society of Clinical Rehabilitation Specialists.
