One of seven Tickel-family spine shifters, Dr. James Tickel treats Chicagoland vertebrae with expertise honed over a lifetime of international healing stewardship. The doctor kicks off each patient's inaugural session by evaluating their joints, muscles, and nerves individually and in concert, uncovering any of chiropractic's myriad treatable conditions, including tennis elbow, allergies, headaches, and general tension after a summer job subbing for Atlas. Tickel's certified un-crookers specialize in upper-cervical-specific work and sports-focused therapies, with other healing services including therapeutic modalities and multiple methods of massage.
Doctor of Chiropractic Brian Russell, who has been practicing since 1990, has helped alleviate numerous symptoms in patients of all ages?all by manually adjusting the spine. As a certified chiropractic sports physician and a orthopedic specialist, Russell is passionate about alleviating patients' pain and restoring function to their entire bodies, from their feet to their dorsal fins. But his goals go beyond reducing existing symptoms. Citing his belief that all the body's systems are interconnected, Russell defines true health as more than the absence of disease and hopes to impart his patients with active wellness.
