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.

Our patients tend to be people who want more than masking symptoms with harmful drugs
