Wheaton, IL, 15-MAY-2012 - Wheaton back doctor, Dr. Jeff Winternheimer, offers the safe and natural solutions to members of the community who suffer from lower back pain. The doctor develops individualized programs that address the root cause of the pain and provides patients with the education and resources needed to alleviate future occurrences of pain.
When interviewed recently Dr. Winternheimer shared his commitment to assuring patients are able to enjoy activities without the presence of pain. "Lower back pain is often the result of many contributing factors which must be addressed as part of the healing process. A tremendous amount of pressure is placed on the lower spine when an individual spends long periods of time in a seated position. I work very closely with my patients to identify the contributing factors of the pain and give my patients the solutions that will help them maintain a healthy spine."
A person suffering from lower back pain is often unable to focus or function effectively at their job or in their daily life. During the initial consultation, Dr. Winternheimer discusses the normal activities of the individual, their job, diet, exercise and lifestyle. The doctor will ask questions about both the back pain and other pain that may be experienced such as tingling or numbness in the extremities and headaches. During the physical examination the doctor will identify any external issues that may be causing the pain. X-rays and mobility testing are conducted to determine damaged or injured discs, herniations, compressed discs, and misalignments in the spine.
After evaluating the data collected during the initial examination, Dr. Winternheimer creates a wellness program that will address the immediate pain through gentle, low-force manipulation to realign the spine and relieve pressure from pinched nerves. The doctor will also make use other therapies that will help the body to heal more effectively and quickly.
Nutritional therapy is often employed to increase the vitamins and nutrients required by the body to stimulate healing, increase circulation and improve the metabolism. The doctor may use massage or hot/cold therapy to relieve swelling and inflammation to damaged tissues and increase the flow of oxygen to the areas. Exercises designed to strengthen the muscle groups supporting the lower back and hips are provided as well as information on steps that an individual can take to avoid recurring pain.
