For Dr. Lucas Odahlen, D.C., achieving total-body wellness involves more than just one method, and none of those methods include pharmaceutical drugs. Instead, the doctor and his staff of medical professionals immerse their clients in natural-wellness practices that address and alleviate chronic pain and stress. Chiropractic care tackles issues such as fibromyalgia, work injuries, and carpal tunnel syndrome, while therapeutic massage employs various modalities to simultaneously relax and rejuvenate clients without making them listen to a cat purring for hours. The team also arms clients with natural tools for weight loss and smoking cessation.

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.
