The medical staff at Access Health Care knows that problems in one area of the body can affect the entire body. To address this, it provides a host of medical disciplines across three locations.
Chiropractors, acupuncturists, and massage therapists soothe the central nervous system and liberate bodily energies blocked by stress. At the Hoffman Estates office, dentists keep oral health in check with checkups and periodontal treatments. They also bolster waning confidence with Zoom! teeth whitening.
Dr. Chirag H. Shah, a doctor of chiropractic and licensed acupuncturist, has treated some important spines?pro-baseball pitcher Carlos Zambrano's, for one. And he gives star-quality treatment to patients who don't play pro sports, too, adjusting their vertebrae to help dissolve back and neck pain. Dr. Shah doesn't overestimate his specialty, either. He views chiropractics as one of many pain-relief treatments, and in that spirit, he is also a licensed acupuncturist and has licensed massage therapists on staff.
On the Michelin Bib Gourmand list for two years in a row for gourmet value, Thai Village excites palates with traditional Asian cuisine, including many vegetarian options. Behind the restaurant’s carved wooden façade is a bright, exposed-brick dining room with a pressed-tin ceiling and walls speckled with ornately framed art. During warm weather, the restaurant’s outdoor patio allows guests to mingle spicy tastes with no-holds-barred staring contests against the sun.:m]]
Board-certified chiropractic physician Dr. Naveed Elahi takes a multidisciplinary approach to pain relief, disease prevention, and whole-body health at Health First Wellness Center. The practice specializes in chiropractic medicine, a science that aims to alleviate such common conditions as headaches and neck pain without the use of drugs, surgery, or noogies. In cases where traditional chiropractic medicine does not apply, the doctor rounds out the treatment menu with acupuncture and clinical massage therapy, two ancient modalities that can reduce anxiety and improve sleep. Furthermore, personal training and nutrition counseling help patients ward off the specter of disease in a more reliable manner than hanging garlic cloves on their treadmills. In addition to MedSpa services including laser hair removal and VelaShape body smoothing and contouring, Health First Wellness Center also offers yoga, Zumba, and Pilates classes.
Various wellness services are offered under the same roof at Wellocity Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation. Physical therapy places an emphasis on facilitating mobility by using specialized techniques to increase joints' range of motion, strengthen weakened muscles, or improve coordination and balance. Acupuncture sessions aim to restore a sense of balance by clearing energy-blocking elements, such as balloon animals clinging to clients' backs. The center even offers physician-supervised weight-loss programs, which use a combination of nutritional counseling and recommended exercise regimens to help individuals meet their goals.
Dr. Jeremy Barone is more than a chiropractor. Yes, he performs spinal adjustments using the upper cervical method⎯a technique that eschews the cracking backs of traditional therapies in favor of gentler adjustments. But he also runs Barone Performance, where he provides clients with multipoint assessments and physical training programs that are customized to their age and ability. Programs aim to improve clients’ posture, strength, and stability, which they can test at home by standing up straight while balancing a book on their head, patting their stomach, and busting out some bicep curls.
