Led by the acupuncture- and meridian-therapy-certified Doctor of Chiropractic Michael Wojnicki, Global Chiropractic utilizes gentle methods to help ease patients' pain, discomfort, and illness. During the orthopedic exam, Dr. Wojnicki will perform analytical tests, conduct spinal x-rays, and engage in intimate conversations with each vertebra to locate areas of spine and nerve stress. After the exam and consultation, patients can undergo a relief treatment that employs a unique “specific prone” technique and carefully inserted acupuncture needles. After the first 30-minute office appointment, patients can schedule a 20-minute follow-up in which the doctor will review x-rays, oversee an intersegmental traction treatment, adjust the spine, and construct a skin fence with acupuncture needles to relieve back tension and contain free-roaming dingoes.
Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Plate has always been interested in natural, alternative medicine, even before he became a chiropractor. He believes the best medication is the body itself, and uses a range of treatments to help the body heal itself. His noninvasive techniques include activator adjustments, which tap into patients' self-healing properties to help them overcome a range of ailments. Dr. Plate relies on these drug-free techniques to treat a full range of ailments, from headaches and back pain to whiplash injuries and pinched nerves.
At Lifestyle in Motion Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Adam Stephen takes a holistic approach to wellness, treating his patients with a diverse repertoire of adjustments. Aside from the traditional spinal adjustment, Dr. Stephen also employs extremity adjustments and a mechanical-traction device to optimize nervous-system function, improve overall health, and alleviate immediate pains.

In their efforts to improve communication in the central nervous system by addressing nerve interference, chiropractors provide spinal adjustments and supplemental treatments such as cervical traction, therapeutic exercise and balance-strengthening wobble boards. Their practice extends far beyond the wellness centers, however: community-outreach efforts take them to health fairs, offsite spinal screenings, and complimentary workshops on a range of wellness topics. They also devote themselves to nonprofit work with several organizations, including The Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Greater Chicago Food Depository. At the Chiros Care Free Wellness Center, they examine and treat Chicago's homeless and HIV-positive population, fueled by their belief that everyone should have access to expert preventive care.
