At Lake County Physical Medicine, Dr. Justin Atkinson and his spine-aligning staff specialize in personalized care with an emphasis on inspiring long-term wellness through holistic healing methods. This medically integrated wellness center uses a team of doctors, chiropractors, and rehab therapists to target a wide range of issues. Sore joints surrender range-limiting pain pockets to a number of time-tested chiropractic methods, from back-to-basics manual adjustments that adjust misaligned vertebrae back into place, to trigger-point therapy to alleviate muscle tension, to all-natural solutions to fight nerve damage, and diagnostic motion palpation to heavy-metal therapy, wherein clients recline on subwoofers blasting Black Sabbath.
Traction rehabilitation shepherds compacted spines to pain-relieving protraction, a treatment that may be augmented by customized exercise routines designed to fortify spinal columns against future injuries. Clients seeking to drop extra weight can opt for a custom weight loss plan, designed by nutritionists and weight loss experts, which may use lipotropic B12 injections to help clients torch calories. The healing hands of Dr. Atkinson's massage therapists alternate between Swedish and deep-tissue techniques that may also incorporate trigger-point therapy and myofascial-release methods.
"Fresh-baked cookies" and "arcade" aren't words typically associated with orthodontic care, but iDentity Orthodontics is an exception. While treatment rooms house 3D imaging and smile-straightening technologies, the Grayslake waiting room is stocked with fresh-brewed coffee and piping hot wifi signals, as well as arcade games and fresh-baked treats. And if these amenities aren't enough to put patients at ease, the knowledgeable care bestowed by Dr. Michael Stosich does. A board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Stosich doubles as a dental author and lecturer, and guides a skilled staff of capable tooth caretakers.

When Sensei Katrina Polen teaches Ryukyu Kempo karate to students of all genders and ages during classes, she?s not just showing them self-defense techniques?she?s encouraging them to adopt a lifestyle of fitness, character growth, and creativity. She oversees sparring matches that teach the value of a strong work ethic or stunt double, and also plans optional competitions for those desiring more concrete stakes. To allow her prot?g?s an artistic say in their practice, she gives them free reign of the demonstration group, TeamKat, which plans routines for performance.
She also offers non-karate classes in the form of cardio-kickboxing and personal-training sessions. She works to cultivate a tight-knit sense community by hosting additional events, such as birthday parties and bimonthly movie nights.
