Most people will experience “BACK PAIN” of some type throughout their lives. Back pain can range from mild muscle pain and spasms to severe sharp debilitating pain. Back pain can consist of cervical spine pain (NECK), thoracic spine pain (MID BACK), and lumbar spine pain (LOWER BACK). Spinal pain can be caused by a spinal subluxation (MIS-ALIGNED VERTEBRA), disc herniations, spinal degeneration, spinal stenosis, and can radiate pain to other regions of the body such as the upper and lower extremities, ”Sciatica”, and even headaches.
Back pain can be brought on by multiple causes consisting of poor posture, poor ergonomics, excess weight and deconditioning, repetitive activities, over exertion, lifting, falls, sport injuries, and even motor vehicle injuries to mention a few.

Plantar Fasciitis: is commonly known as “HEAL PAIN”. Plantar Fasciitis is the inflammation of the plantar fascia, which is the fibrous tissue on the bottom of the foot connecting the heel bone to the toes. Plantar Fasciitis can and does cause severe heel and foot pain. Plantar Fasciitis is commonly associated with severe heel pain with the initiation of walking after rising form bed or a seated position. Individuals with Plantar Fasciitis classically have to walk on their toes for the first several steps to avoid pressure to the heel. Once activity has begun the pain usually is reduced.
Plantar Fasciitis can be caused by trauma, repetitive activities and also poor foot biomechanics: such as foot pronation or flat feet. Dr. Glen Batson, of Batson Chiropractic of Willowbrook, successfully treats Plantar fasciitis by using Chiropractic Manual Manipulation of the foot and ankle joints, K-Laser Therapy, and Foot Levelers custom foot orthotic devices. K-Laser Therapy is a Class IV Laser therapy utilizing red and near-infrared wavelengths of light energy to induce a photochemical and therapeutic effect, Photo-biomodulation, on the tissues of the heel and plantar fascia. This therapy conservatively and naturally reduces the inflammation of the plantar fascia and osseous structures of the foot and therefore reduces the pain. Dr. Batson utilizes custom orthotic foot devices, shoe inserts, for support and proper function of the foot to reduce irritation of the plantar fascia.
Dr. Batson can be reached for consultation at his Willowbrook Illinois office. Dr. Batson treats patients of many surrounding communities: Hinsdale, Darien, Oakbrook, Downers Grove, Westchester, Westmont, Willow Springs, Burr Ridge, Lemont, and Chicagoland regions.

DISC HERNIATION: aka: “Slipped Disc” and PAIN!!!!!
An inter-vertebral disc is the cartilaginous material between adjacent spinal vertebrae (spinal bones) and acts as a shock absorbing cushion to facilitate proper biomechanical joint function and reduce friction. The disc also acts as a spacer between adjacent vertebrae to allow the spinal nerve roots to exit the spine and supply vital nerve energy to all aspects of the body.
A disc can herniate (bulge or rupture) due to injury, repetitive stress, posture and weight gain, aging, and/or a vertebral subluxation. A vertebral subluxation is the partial dislocation of one vertebrae in relation to another causing altered biomechanical joint function which can then cause altered stress to the disc and thus disc degeneration, disc bulge, herniation, or rupture.
Disc Herniation can be associated with:
• Neck or Lower Back pain
• Radicular pain to the upper or lower extremities/Sciatica
• Arm or leg weakness, tingling, and numbness
• Pain ranging from dull to sharp
• Muscle spasm and stiffness
Dr. Glen Batson, of Batson Chiropractic, treats conditions of disc herniation through proper analysis; very specific chiropractic spinal manipulation techniques (Palmer/Pierce technique); K-Laser Therapy for reduction of inflammation and pain, and improvement in circulation; Lordex Lumbar Decompression Therapy for rehabilitation of the lumbar disc and surrounding structures for the decompression of a pinched nerve root; and home exercise strengthening and stabilization.
Dr. Batson is a Palmer College of Chiropractic graduate, practicing in a solo practice for over thirty one years. Dr. Batson utilizes the PALMER and PIERCE RESULTS SYSTEM of spinal analysis and treatment consisting of utilizing Examination, X-ray analysis in conjunction with Video-Fluoroscopy (motion X-Ray imaging), very specific chiropractic manipulation techniques (NO Twisting), Lordex lumbar decompression therapy, and the K-Laser therapy. Dr. Batson treats patients of Willowbrook and the surrounding communities of Darien, Burr Ridge, Downers Grove, Hinsdale, Oakbrook, Clarendon Hills, Western Springs, Lemont, Westmont, and communities of the Tri-State regions.
