The doctors of chiropractic at Chiro One Wellness Centers put patients at the core of their efforts.

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.
Dr. Leo Boisvert and his staff of back benefactors provide relief and preventative care for stretched spines and vertiginous vertebrae. The spine is the center of the nervous system, but muscle contraction and locking of spinal joints often pinch and irritate nearby nerves like a railroad spike in your shoe, setting the stage for disease and ill health. Dr. Leo's thorough consult and examination will assess the spine's health with the help of x-rays designed to detect vertebral irregularities. After determining faulty back lines, the subsequent back adjustments may use a multitude of highly effective techniques to emancipate lodged nerves that cause discomfort. Malabu Family Chiropractic recommends augmenting the services with food supplements, herbal extracts, and unsolicited compliments to your central nervous system.

Occupational therapist and licensed massage therapist Gwen Jones sees wellness in a different light than most healers, focusing on physical health at the cellular level. She also recognizes the role that emotions play in health.

She also offers biocommunication, a method of biofeedback that assesses stressors, allergens, and other factors that impact the body negatively in order to create a holistic-health plan that fights them.
