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.

Gene Aiello, a doctor of chiropractic and licensed acupuncturist, works alongside a talented team of three to aid patients at Advanced Chiropractic Care and Acupuncture, Ltd. His team, another chiropractic and acupuncturist and two massage therapists, uses detailed neurological and orthopedic assessments to bolster health amid equipment for x-rays and lab tests. The information they glean allows Drs. Aiello and John Kim to create treatment plans that include low-force chiropractic techniques, several physical therapies, and massage, among other services. Allergy testing also plays its part—using kinesiology, Dr. Aiello can use a laser acupuncture treatment to desensitize the patients, finally allowing them to play in freshly cut grass or see why freshly cut grass isn’t a popular ice-cream flavor.
