In 1930, Dr. Joseph Rosin and his brother, Maurice, opened a small shop on Cermak Road in Cicero. In 80 years, the shop has grown from a small family-run optometrist's office to a regionally renowned business that has sharpened the eyesight of celebrities such as Joe DiMaggio and Plácido Domingo and left its mark on the Chicago area by designing famous symbols such as Harry Caray's trademark glasses and the novelty shades that adorn the John Hancock Center. Today, Rosin Eyecare rests in the hands of the third generation of Rosins, ably helmed by brothers James and Jonathan, who continue a proud tradition of warm, personal service as they improve eyesight with high-tech LASIK and PRK treatments as well as stylish eyeglasses with scratch-resistant lenses. At 16 locations, including the newest office Long Grove, a staff of optometrists keeps optical orbs in high function with comprehensive exams, treating each patient's individual needs with products such as a contact-lens implant or a prescription safety eyewear.
Fox Valley Physician Services, S.C. helps patients manage pain with tailored treatment plans. Depending on the nature and source of a patient's pain, the staff may recommend physical therapy, prescription medication, injections, or surgery. Its rehabilitation programs address pain from car-accident injuries, muscle and nerve aches, headaches, and herniated discs.
An optometrist's job is to ensure eyes stay healthy and continue to perform their assigned function of transferring visual data and winking at judges. That is, unless the optometrist is Dr. David F. Martin. At Family Vision Development Center, Dr. Martin and his team go beyond the usual eye inspections and glasses fittings to check binocular vision dysfunction and even learning-related vision issues. He views ocular health in terms of overall health, believing that visual problems can serve as indicators of deeper, overall wellness issues. In such cases, the doctor can make recommendations to help bring eyes and bodies back into seesaw-like balance.
As a nursing-home administrator, Dr. Frazer witnessed the deleterious effects that follow a lifetime of poor health habit and resolved to make a difference in others' lives without falling back on what he saw as an overreliance on medication. Today, he serves as the doctor in a chiropractic clinic whose philosophy emphasizes preventive care and the positive presence of health, rather than the mere absence of disease. His chiropractic adjustments, which generally entail a quick thrust to a vertebra, can comfort the spine, nerves, soft tissues, and muscles. In keeping with the clinic’s holistic approach, Dr. Frazer’s treatments are complemented by massage services, nutritional advice, and exercises that keep your nostrils from getting all flabby.
Spinal Rehab & Wellness Center aims to restore optimal health, range of motion, and wellness to each of its patients, using a variety of holistic techniques. Their team of physicians, chiropractors, therapists, and trainers lend their expertise when treating ailments that range from migraines to carpal tunnel syndrome to whiplash caused by mistaking a cardboard cutout of David Hasselhoff for the real thing.
Before treatments, clients take a thorough intake exam, which covers questions about their lifestyle, health history, and the current issues that plague them. Practitioners then take this information, along with an evaluation of the client’s emotional state, to prescribe a holistic course of therapy. This treatment plan could include physical therapy, therapeutic massage, nutritional counseling, or chiropractic care.
