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.
