Neck Pain Relief

Get Natural Relief From Neck Pain!

For those of you that suffer from neck pain, you know how debilitating this condition can be.  Neck Pain can get in the way of work and daily activities.  Many neck pain sufferers are looking for a natural solution for neck pain relief.

A Spinal Problem in the Neck Can cause the following symptoms.

  • Neck Pain
  • Headaches
  • Tight muscles
  • Decreased Range of Motion
  • Chronic Stiffness
  • Arm & Wrist Pain

Neck Pain and these associated symptoms are far to common today and many people hope that their neck pain will just go away.  Some even start taking medication on a regular basis just to get relief.  This is a very dangerous road to go down, because pain medication is only covering up the symptom, not getting to the root cause of the problem.

The most important fact a neck pain sufferer must know is that Spinal Problems can get worse over time if not found and corrected.  Stop ignoring your neck pain and get it checked today!  Imagine How much better you will feel!

Synergy Institute can help you find out what is causing your neck pain, headaches, and tight muscles with a neck pain consultation and evaluation.  One of our Chiropractors or Physical Therapists will listen to your problem, ask a few questions, examine you, and possible take an x-ray.  In most cases, we will be able to tell you right away what is going on.

For more complex cases, and people with chronic conditions such as disc degeneration, herniated discs, bulging discs, and spinal stenosis additional studies and advanced treatments may be necessary.  If you happen to have prior MRI’s etc., we would love to take a look at them to offer a second opinion.  We have introduced many disc patients to new treatment options they didn’t know existed.

Our treatment program is different at Synergy Institute because we take an integrative approach combining Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Physical Therapy, and Therapeutic massage.  We also have some cutting edge treatments available like Spinal Disc Decompression and K Laser Therapy that can help get relief for the more stubborn disc cases.

We treat each patient like an individual and do not take a one size fits all approach.  Our treatment programs consist of recommendations that specifically target the different areas of dysfunction.  We have treatments and therapies that consider tight muscles, weak muscles, spinal misalignment, nutritional contribution, and disc health.

Because our treatment approach at Synergy Institute is multi-dimensional, we can help get patients better faster and stay better longer.  We also only recommend the treatments that can help you.

What are you waiting for?  Synergy Institute has Three Convenient Locations that can help you get Neck Pain Relief.

Have you have ever considered trying acupuncture for pain relief or wellness? Have you been told by a friend to try it? The answer is probably yes. In recent years acupuncture has become increasingly popular in the last few years. Each year, more and more people are trying it and incorporating Acupuncture into their regular healthcare program.

Most people I talk to would consider acupuncture, but would like some answers to some of their question. Here are the top five questions that almost every patient asks before beginning treatment.

“Does Acupuncture Work?”
Yes, acupuncture has worked for centuries and has proven itself over and over again with various conditions. Modern research has demonstrated acupuncture to be effective, and many medical doctors are even referring their patients to acupuncturists for treatment.

“How Does Acupuncture Work?
Acupuncture helps the body achieve balance by stimulating various points in the body called meridians. The needles are inserted into the meridians to help balance the energy flow called Qi. When proper energy flow and balance are restored, all of the organs and systems function in harmony and the body can then begin to heal itself.

“What Are the Conditions that can Acupuncture Help?”
Acupuncture has been successful with many conditions and can also be used in a wellness program to keep the body functioning at it’s best. Some of the most common conditions helped by acupuncture are….

  • Neck pain& Back Pain
  • Disc Problems
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Headaches
  • Foot Pain & Knee Pain
  • Tennis & Golfer’s elbow
  • Neuropathy
  • Radiculopathy
  • Fertility
  • Insomnia & Sleeping Problems
  • TMJ & Facial Pain
  • and much more!

“Does Acupuncture Hurt?”
Acupuncture does not hurt. The needles used in acupuncture are very fine and cause little or no pain when inserted into the meridians. Many patients, even the most needle phobic, remark that they barely feel a thing and report that they feel more relaxed during the acupuncture session than they remember being in a long time.

“How Much Does Acupuncture Cost?”
Acupuncture is very affordable and usually ranges between $50 and $75 per treatment. The cost depends on duration, number of points stimulated, and if electro-stimulation is used. Many insurance companies even cover the cost of the acupuncture session.

Hopefully you have most of your questions about acupuncture answered. If you live in Naperville, Bolingbrook, or Plainfield and are ready to give Acupuncture a try…Call Synergy Institute today at 630-922-5790 for A FREE Acupuncture Consultation.

Back Pain Relief

Five Helpful Tips For Back Pain Relief

Tips For Back Pain Relief

Many people suffer from back pain.  Matter of fact, most people you know suffer from back pain.  It is one of the most common reasons for missed work.

The alarming statistics shed light on to the fact that we need to employ better strategies at combating back pain.  Rather than focus on creating new treatments for back pain, it is more beneficial if each individual would take some simple measures to protect their back and spine.

I will list the top five ways to reduce and prevent back pain.

1.  Stretch every day at least two times.  You don’t need to stretch for house, just enough to stretch the major muscle groups each a minimum of sixty seconds.

2.  Use proper ergonomics to eliminate daily repetitive stresses being placed on the spine and back.  Evaluate lifting techniques, car seat settings, and any other activity you do on a regular basis.

3.  Proper nutrition is also very critical for the cells that heal and repair on an ongoing basis.  Drink 64 ounces of water, eat a minimum of half of your body weight in grams of protein and eliminate inflammatory foods like refined, processed foods, and sugars.  Diets are more important than most people think.

4.  Regular cardiovascular activity also helps the muscles and joins move better.  Moderate exercise that does not increase stress on the joints in recommended.  Thirty minute sessions three to five times per week is best.  Make sure you are comfortable doing the exercise and select types of cardio you feel best doing.

5.  Get a spinal check up to identify problems before you have symptoms.  Just like you would get your teeth checked to prevent cavities for progressing, you also want to get your spine checked.  Problems begin long before the symptoms occur.

Take time to implement these simple instructions.  The Synergy Institute can help you with a stretching program and nutritional advice.  You can also come in for a FREE consultation to learn more about having a spinal check up.

Stop Suffering from Back Pain.

Are you Suffering From Back Pain, Sciatica or herniated Discs?

Are you Suffering from Back Pain, Sciatica, or Disc Problems?  If so, having back and leg pain can bring life to a standstill.

You might not be able to play  sports, work, or even sit for more than a few minutes.  Its tough because people who don’t have these problems can’t even begin to understand how you feel.  I bet you can’t remember the last time you even had a restful night’s sleep.

When the cushions in you back joints, called discs, get injured or wear out, they begin to degenerate and caus pain.  Bulging and herniations form, pressing on nerve roots.

The most common treatment for disc herniations is surgery.  even with health insurance the patient is left with their own portion of the bill, in excess of $10,000 – $15,000 and sometimes more.

In addition the recovery time and missed work can be anywhere from 3 to 6 months, not to mention the obvious severe risks associated with any surgery.

Before you opt for Spinal Surgery, you should consider a less invasive approach to solving your back pain and sciatica.
