Chicago & Oak Park Chiropractic | Chicago & Oak Park Chiropractors | Advanced Physical Medicine
Professional chiropractors at Chicago and Oak Park clinics of Advanced Physical Medicine are looking forward to helping you regain or maintain optimum health. Chiropractic approach stresses your overall wellness, recognizing the many factors that affect it, including exercise, diet, rest, environment, and heredity. Chiropractors provide natural, drugless, non-surgical health treatments and rely on the body's inherent recuperative abilities. As Chiropractic Physicians, we typically diagnose and treat patients whose health problems are associated with the body's muscular, nervous, and skeletal systems. In your treatment protocol, we may recommend changes in your lifestyle and, on occasion, consult with and refer you to other health practitioners we have on staff.
Like other health practitioners, chiropractors follow a standard routine to secure the information we need for diagnosis and treatment. On your first visit, we'll take your medical history, conduct physical, neurological, and orthopedic examinations, and may order laboratory tests. We have found that X-rays and other diagnostic images are important tools because of our emphasis on the spine and its proper functioning.
We also conduct a postural and spinal analysis, because vertebral dysfunction may alter many important body functions by affecting the nervous system and causing a skeletal imbalance, which in turn, can cause pain or lower resistance to disease.
The Chiropractic Doctors of Advanced Physical Medicine are Chicago's experts at locating and analyzing improper placement of the vertebrae and correcting subluxations, enabling the body to return to its proper alignment. This is key in correcting the "vertebral subluxation complex," which can interfere with your body's normal functioning and long-term health. For treatments, we may manually adjust the spinal column and/or apply supports such as straps, tapes, and braces. In addition we counsel you about nutrition, exercise, stress management, and other wellness concepts.
Whether you have experienced a small or serious accident, have suffered whiplash, suffer from ongoing lower back pain, neck pain, headache, or have signs of carpal tunnel syndrome, you need to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors today.
