Rush Performance: Personal Training Studio's certified trainers take positive attitudes and community support so seriously that if you complain during your trial of the Team Rush training program and bring any negativity, you won't be able to join Team Rush. And that would mean not torching hundreds of calories and toning up during strength, cardio, and sports conditioning sessions and high-intensity interval circuits.
Even the personal training requires supporting your fellow exercisers as it usually involves small groups of two to four working out together and forming a human pyramid to place any junk food out of reach. The trainers often use the FitRanX fitness-testing system to determine how fit a person is before they start Rush's programs and to monitor their progress throughout.
Dr. Amjad Safvi has spent more than 15 years in the medical field focusing on vascular issues, particularly varicose and spider veins.

The facility’s laser collection, the high-tech cherry on its med-spa sundae, allows the staff to showcase hair-removal, anti-aging, and facial-rejuvenation treatments that round out a crowded roster that includes SkinMedica chemical peels, Botox injections, and fillers that can last up to five years.

• For $49, you get five chiropractic-adjustment sessions (a $150 value). • For $109, you get 10 chiropractic-adjustment sessions and one 30-minute deep-tissue massage (a $330 value). Dr. Bill Smith helms Smith Chiropractic with a devotion to accessible healthcare, quality patient services, and a tranquil, healing atmosphere. Nestled amid Asian-inspired bamboo décor, the lobby's water fountain produces tranquil music for visitors as they check in. Within a private therapy room, Dr. Bill listens to patients as they detail their treatment goals, then administers a chiropractic adjustment to assuage back aches, stiffness, and the spine's envy of stegosaurus spikes. The adjustment gently moves the spine beyond its normal range of motion, exercising the extremes of the back's natural movement abilities in a controlled manipulation. Groupon users opting for 10 spine-straightening sessions pair up with a licensed massage therapist for a 30-minute deep-tissue massage after one of their adjustments. Therapists employ dexterous fingers and disc-whispering skills to work stress, tension, and embedded footballs out of muscles.

Dr. Lowell Scott Weil Sr. founded his eponymous institute in 1965 to treat the foot and ankle ailments of Des Plaines–area patients. Now with 10 practice locations and a staff of 15 podiatrists and surgeons, Weil Foot & Ankle Institute has grown into a recognized network that's seen the soles of more than 100,000 patients. This team utilizes technologies such as MRI, digital radiography, and old-fashioned feet tickling to diagnose conditions ranging from fractures and deformities to ingrown or fungal nails and diabetic neuropathy.
Dr. Weil recently completed a study, and presented it the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, that shows a 63% chance of a nail-fungus treatment clearing a nail as long as there is at least 3 millimeters of clear nail at its base.
