Doctor of Chiropractic Anthony Petrone keeps the nervous system in line without the use of drugs or invasive surgeries. Instead, he helps patients feel their best with spinal adjustments, spinal decompression, and physical therapy. These treatment protocols help alleviate ailments such as back pain and fibromyalgia without resorting to risky surgeries. Dr. Petrone sends patients of all ages down the path to wellness after getting to know the ins and outs of their conditions and complaints during one-on-one consultations, which he uses to develop customized care plans.
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.
The doctors of chiropractic at Chiro One Wellness Centers put patients at the core of their efforts. Though the centers are spread the country, with locations in Illinois, Kentucky and Texas, the company's mission remains to help patients and their surrounding communities reach their maximum potential through a combination of customized chiropractic treatment plans and education. This approach doesn't just assuage painful symptoms—it's also designed to uncover the root causes of ailments such as whiplash, insomnia, headaches, carpal-tunnel syndrome, and more.
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.
At Back in Line Chiropractic, licensed massage therapists Jacqueline, Ali, Vanina, and Mary guide guests onto a warm surface before trumping muscle aches and sore tissue with a blended brew of Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point massage techniques. The therapists consult with patients and assess their muscles to pepper targeted kneads around problem areas, helping evict pain, rouse circulation, and dispose of porcupine-filled backpacks.
Doctors of Chiropractic Lee Echelbarger and Christopher Hanner focus on unearthing the causes of achy muscles and perform nontwisting adjustments to relieve the pain and impaired nerve function from joint misalignment. Using experience earned at the Palmer College of Chiropractic as well as specialized training and x-ray vision, Dr. Echelbarger seeks out and alleviates discomfort in the arms and legs caused by such conditions as carpal-tunnel syndrome and plantar fasciitis. Dr. Echelbarger also coddles musclescapes with neurological massage, which measures the electrical pulses traveling from the brain to the muscles to determine what muscles need to be soothed for maximum relief.
Through his high-school and collegiate sporting ventures, Dr. Jack grew inspired to become a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician. Today, he helps those suffering from sports-related injuries, as well as those injured in car accidents or daily activity. By administering adjustments as well as massage therapy, he alleviates pain springing from injured discs, joints, and nerves while also relaxing tight muscles to eliminate spasms and improve day-to-day functioning.
At Churchill Chiropractic, Doctor of Chiropractic Carl Blackford knows better than anyone the risks of taking medication, thanks to his pharmacy degree. Instead of relying on pills to mask clients' pain, he uncovers its source during examinations and uses his bare hands to guide bodies back to a state of balance. These low-risk techniques are drug-free and noninvasive, tapping into the body's own self-healing properties.
