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.

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.
Michael Pys feels like he has a lot of missed opportunities. As an osteopathic therapist who specializes in pain management, so many of his would-be patients have resigned to living with chronic pain, and thus aren’t seeking treatment. With this in mind, Michael devotes himself fully to each client—treatment begins with hands-on palpation and a one-on-one consultation so that he can determine both the physical and emotional affects of each person’s condition. He uses 17 years of experience to integrate multiple therapeutic modalities, which might include soft-tissue manipulation and release, massage, stretching, and postural correction. Compared to medicinal therapy, Michael’s technique is more inclusive, and it can be adjusted to treat ailments that range from migraines and nerve-related discomfort to sports injuries and chronic back pain from a career as a professional backpack model.
