Joint Pain

Joint pain can make walking, standing, and even sitting difficult. Fortunately, you can receive chiropractic treatment at the Illinois Pain & Spine Institute of Barrington to improve your mobility and reduce the pain. Our chiropractor can use gentle manipulation techniques to make your joints less tender. Other treatment options include ultrasound, electrotherapy, and a low-level laser. The treatment received will depend on the nature of your issue. For example, if your joints are actively swollen, an adjustment won’t be the right choice. Instead, our provider may ease the swelling with ultrasound or a low-level laser.

Scoliosis

Approximately 90 percent of people with scoliosis don’t need surgery. However, they still suffer from painful symptoms. If you’re one of the many Chicago residents with scoliosis, consider undergoing chiropractic treatment for your condition. Chiropractic treatment can reduce the pressure your spine puts on your nervous system. Our Barrington chiropractor can also help you strengthen your core, which could also alleviate symptoms. Along with reducing pain, chiropractic treatment can make breathing easier and allow you to enjoy an active lifestyle without your symptoms holding you back.

Headaches

Headaches and muscle tension often go hand in hand. If your neck muscles are tight, the tension can spread to your head and lead to a headache. Illinois Pain & Spine Institute can treat headaches that start in the neck and progress to the head. Dr. Fischer may use adjustments or manipulation to reduce stress and tension. He may also provide suggestions for you to make lifestyle changes in order to prevent your neck muscles from tensing up and causing headaches.

Disc Issues

Bulging and herniated discs are extremely common. Your disc condition might be due to “wear and tear” or repetitive motions. You could have injured yourself. Obesity and genetics also play a role in disc issues. The Illinois Pain & Spine Institute’s Barrington chiropractor can alleviate the symptoms and help you start to recover. Dr. Fischer takes a holistic approach to disc injuries. This could include a spinal adjustment to relieve pressure on the discs, exercises as well as nutritional advice to follow at home.

Sciatica

Sciatica causes shooting pain that goes from the lower back down the legs. It might feel worse when you sit down and you might notice burning, tingling and numbness as well. Fortunately, this painful condition responds well to chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic massage therapy is one such option. Our Barrington chiropractor will manipulate the tissue, helping your muscles relax. This helps to take pressure off the sciatic nerve.

Whiplash

Car accidents cause many of the whiplash injuries which are treated at the Illinois Pain & Spine Institute. However, you can end up with whiplash due to other types of traumas as well. No matter how you developed whiplash, chiropractic treatment at our Barrington clinic can increase your range of motion and reduce your pain. Dr. Fischer will evaluate your symptoms to determine the proper treatment. Most often, patients respond well to spinal manipulation and trigger point techniques.

Pinched Nerves

A pinched nerve can cause pain, numbness, weakness and other symptoms. Chiropractic treatment can alleviate the symptoms by reducing the pressure on the nerve. Dr. Fischer could adjust your spine to remove pressure on the spinal discs. You also might be a good candidate for traction. This technique stretches the spine to release the pressure. Many patients report that they start feeling better after the first treatment, although additional visits could continue to reduce the symptoms.
