Owned and operated by physical therapists, Accelerated Rehabilitation Centers welcomes patients into a massive network of 200 centers. Accelerated Rehabilitation Centers' cohort of therapists helps to restore the strength, motor skills, and physical functions of patients.
The overarching approach is defined by a patients-first philosophy—the therapists actively listen and understand their patients' issues before crafting individual recovery programs tailored to athletes, children, industrial workers, or cartoon coyotes with anvil-related injuries. The rehab pros also serve community youth by supporting programs such as Kick It Right, a soccer program designed to enrich children's lives.
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.
The multidisciplinary staff at Physical Medicine Associates, overseen by director of clinics and Doctor of Chiropractic Angela Silva, puts patients on the pathway to wellness with both allopathic and holistic therapies. The clinical team also supports athletes who seek to recover from injuries or increase performance. Most often, the team's treatment plans integrate physical therapy, acupuncture, and nutritional counseling. For athletes who want to enhance their speed, the healthcare professionals recommend sessions on the Power Plate acceleration-training device, whose vibration action stimulates fast-twitch muscle fibers.
ThinFast MD's team of weight-loss specialists—including physicians, nurses, and dietitians—works together to design custom programs for patients of all sizes and ages. With focuses ranging from appetite suppressants to diabetes and nutrition counseling, they help regulate the body's intake of food and spotlight the healthiest choices for each patient's body. They also work with the Optifast meal-replacement program, which kick-starts weight loss with 16 weeks of nutritious meals, custom transition diets, and regular labs and monitoring as needed. Every patient receives a complimentary initial consultation so that the doctors can divine realistic goals. At the root of those goals is the recognition that the best reason to adopt a healthy diet and start exercising is not simply to lose weight or make a lazy pet jealous, but because it feels good and develops a sense of overall well-being.
Each location offers the regenerative properties of various varieties of massage that make a soul vessel feel springtime fresh. Of your 90-minute massage session, 10 minutes are set aside for dressing time and a consultation with your therapist to ensure your massage is customized for you.
At Chirosport Family Health Center, Dr. Brian L. Sailor helps patients heal from injury, stress, or sickness with non-invasive physical therapy. Each non-surgical chiropractic treatment, from gentle spinal adjustments to soothing massage, aims to treat the root causes of diseases and chronic pain, instead of simply treating symptoms or replacing ailing limbs with mannequin parts. Here, patients can also assuage aches or fight the urge to smoke with specialized acupuncture procedures, or asses and treat their allergies with BioSET enzyme therapy.
More than 10 years ago, Transformation Bodywork owner Kathleen Fanning eschewed her corporate career for a more wholesome, fulfilling path. After earning her massage therapist certification in 2004, she traveled to an Indian orphanage where provided massage therapy to children with polio. She now works with two other licensed massage therapists at Transformation Bodywork, where they strive to impart tranquility on clientele through a variety of Eastern healing practices. Along with massage therapy services that range from hot stone to cranio-sacral, Transformation Bodywork also offers reflexology, health counseling, and personal training. Each service adopts a holistic approach, and the health counseling sessions cover all aspects of nourishment, including relationships and physical activity. Personal trainers travel to home gyms and health clubs to work within client schedules. Kathleen also shares deeksha—a spiritual practice through which she aims to impart clear mindedness, inner tranquility, and joyfulness to her clients, among other benefits.
