When it comes to athletics, the medical team at Highland Park Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation—formerly Highland Park Chiropractic—is serious about competitive sports. Dr. Charlie Hausman, who helms the 1,700-square-foot facility, brings a background of competitive waterskiing to his work while colleague Dr. Averill Sutchar scaled the collegiate gridiron at the University of San Diego under current San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh. Together, the team uphold their dedication to chiropractic care by providing patients with alternate treatment regimens, helping them overcome ailments sans surgery.
Today, Dr. Hausman and Dr. Sutchar incorporate chiropractic services ranging from massage therapy to spinal decompression to help patients deal with a variety of conditions. Dr. Paul Marsiglia, a pain specialist, helps manage discomfort with trigger-point injections for the neck and back as well as specialized injections for the hips, knees, ankles, and shoulders. Though Dr. Hausman no longer partakes in competitive waterskiing, he stays active by thumb wrestling himself and participating in triathlons and ironman competitions—even qualifying for the grueling 2012 Ironman World Championship in Hawaii. Dr. Sutchar's diverse education background in psychology, physical therapy, and athletics has kept him searching for well-rounded redemies to assuage the aches and pains for his sports-minded clientele.
The friendly oral and facial surgeons at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Chicago wield 10 years of experience to help restore smiles with standalone dental implants and abutments. After a consultation and examination to determine eligibility for treatment, review medical history, and ascertain the patient's likelihood of trying steak-flavored toothpaste, dental experts place the implant into the jawbone with the aid of anesthesia and sedation. The small titanium screw is designed to fuse to the body's existing structure in a process that may require several visits over the course of a few months, followed by the attachment of an abutment. Like a well-programmed robot butler, an implant normally serves its owner for life.
At Preferred Dental Spa, tooth whisperers apply a specialty Zoom! gel onto chompers, which then bathe in focused, intense light in three 15-minute cycles. The 45-minute service causes minimal discomfort, if any, and brightens teeth up to eight shades more efficiently than holding a flashlight between teeth. Zoom! reports that with careful upkeep, results can last for years.
