Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack opened the first HealthSource office in 2006 and has watched his business take flight. Named No. 1 New Franchise by Entrepreneur in 2011 and profiled in Inc., HealthSource has grown to more than 400 offices nationwide. The expansion is due in part to progressive-treatment protocols and business systems and in part to the experience Dr. Tomshack gained while in the US Air Force and the MBA program at the University of Toledo, and at Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he graduated summa cum laude.
At each of his offices, a team of chiropractors, licensed massage therapists, and trainers helps to alleviate ailments such as disk degeneration and fibromyalgia.

A progressive-rehab program works with body areas that are known to cause trouble, such as weak lower backs and rebellious pinky toes.
The eye doctors at Family Eye Physicians, which include an ophthalmologist with a resume that lists advanced training in pediatric eye care a position as chief resident of John Stroger Hospital, employ the latest technology to perform preventative and restorative services. To diagnose eye issues, they create three-dimensional images with high-resolution optical coherence tomography and use a technique called fluorescein angiography, in which a fluorescent dye is injected into the arm to highlight ocular abnormalities, such as deposits beneath the retina or blood vessel patterns that resemble Elvis. The highly trained team can improve cataract patients' vision at all distances via intraocular lens implants, or make glasses and contacts obsolete with microkeratome or bladeless LASIK vision-correction surgery.

Health experts also completely makeover lifestyles as they mold new regimes around a medicinal philosophy that combines western practices with holistic methods and proper nutrition.
