ChiroXchange supports a nervous system of more than 250 nationwide locations, whose varying services and technologies all converge with the end of healing bodies with holistic, drug-free techniques. The chiropractors believe that many of the body’s ailments, from sore backs and headaches to fatigue, are caused by blockages in the nervous system. To reverse these blockages, they nudge spinal discs back into place with gentle, strategic pressure, aligning nerves with the vertebra to free the flow of information and cat photos to and from the brain. The chiropractors at each location emphasize communication with their patients. They field questions, explain the purpose of every adjustment, and work with patients to design programs around their unique wellness goals.

Q&A with the Marketing Manager

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?

Watts is the North Shore?s premier outdoor refrigerated ice rink open from late November through early March. During the off-season, a variety of recreation programs are held in the center?s two program rooms and outside at Watts Park. Each day, Glencoe Park District staffers serve residents of all ages at Watts Center, many of whom have been enjoying facility for generations.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Long before Watts Center was constructed and the outdoor artificial ice rinks were installed, Glencoe residents still enjoyed outdoor ice skating during the winter months. In the 1950s and 1960s, the park district flooded a natural ice rink in the park near Central School at Park and Greenwood. Today, the professional-grade refrigerated rinks at Watts Center offer a smooth skating surface during the winter months.

Matt Feeney and Joel Berman share a disability and a dream. Feeney broke his neck diving off a 100-foot cliff and Berman lost his ability to walk after a runaway flatcar hit him while he was laying rail tracks. Together they founded Adaptive Adventures to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities through participation in sports and recreation. The organization runs progressive outdoor sports programs year-round for children, adults, and service members who have been severely injured in conflicts abroad. They cater to people with a wide range of disabilities, including spinal-cord injuries, amputations, and cerebral palsy. Activities such as kayaking, cycling, or water skiing help build confidence, social skills, and healthy lifestyles in participants who could not otherwise afford equipment, training, and travel for recreational sports.

The organizers of Double Denim Bar Crawl have two goals: raise awareness of autism and have fun doing it. Their yearly bar crawls through historic Wrigleyville, which take place during Austism Awareness Month, gather revelers suited up from head to toe in denim jeans, jackets, and shirts to let loose amid raffles, dance-offs, and debates on the cultural degradation caused by khaki. Contests including kiddie-cocktail races and a rock-paper-scissors tournament complement prizes for best and worst double denim, denim princess, and being a HugeParty. Celebrants can feel good about every sudsy libation they imbibe, too, since profits of the crawl go to Young Professional Chicagoland Chapter of Autism Speaks, an organization dedicated to funding autism research, spreading awareness, and advocating for the individuals and families affected by autism.
