Proper Balance Health & Wellness Center
150 hours is a long time, especially since most watches don't register anything past 99 o'clock. But every year, that's the amount of time Dr. Christina Creevy-Knox spends in advanced professional-training programs. The chiropractor immerses herself in wide-reaching topics, from spinal biomechanics and fatigue syndrome to migraines and injury rehabilitation. And when not learning new things, she shares her expertise with others during lectures. Her team at Proper Balance Health & Wellness Center shares her commitment to continuing education. For example, Dr. Elliott Jordan, an Illinois Board Certified Chiropractor, enrolls in post-graduate programs to hone skills in areas such as sports medicine and nutrition. Fellow chiropractor Dr. Natalie Martinez, meanwhile, has expanded her skills into the world of acupuncture. With their combined expertise, the chiropractors can treat all sorts of issues, such as anxiety or chronic pain.
Before any treatments, the team takes their patients through a thorough diagnostic process. During this initial meeting, the doctors might use high-tech equipment such as the PulStar, which uses computerized sensors to examine each vertebrate and joint, hopefully revealing the specific cause of an issue. They then develop a personalized treatment plan to improve a patient's short and long-term health with chiropractic care and physiotherapy. To enhance treatments, the doctors also work alongside massage therapists and Lauren Landry, a certified yoga instructor.
