As a nursing-home administrator, Dr. Frazer witnessed the deleterious effects that follow a lifetime of poor health habit and resolved to make a difference in others' lives without falling back on what he saw as an overreliance on medication. Today, he serves as the doctor in a chiropractic clinic whose philosophy emphasizes preventive care and the positive presence of health, rather than the mere absence of disease. His chiropractic adjustments, which generally entail a quick thrust to a vertebra, can comfort the spine, nerves, soft tissues, and muscles. In keeping with the clinic’s holistic approach, Dr. Frazer’s treatments are complemented by massage services, nutritional advice, and exercises that keep your nostrils from getting all flabby.
For more than a quarter-century, Doctor of Chiropractic David Leger has helped patients from throughout Illinois to lessen discomfort and achieve their wellness goals. Using a "whole-person approach," Dr. Leger employs hands-on techniques, physiotherapy, and wellness supplements to help his patients bounce back from illness and discomfort, and achieve new levels of health or, in some cases, uberhealth. One such hands-on technique is body restoration, which uses elements of acupressure to help restore communication throughout the body's systems.
Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack opened the first HealthSource office in 2006 and has watched his business take flight, growing to more than 250 offices nationwide. The expansion is due in part to progressive-treatment protocols and business systems and in part to the experience Dr. Tomshack gained while in the US Air Force and the MBA program at the University of Toledo, and at Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he graduated summa cum laude. At each of his offices, a team of chiropractors, licensed massage therapists, and trainers helps to alleviate ailments such as disk degeneration and fibromyalgia. The team can also tailor treatments to alleviate pain from carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, or arthritis, and its progressive-rehab program works with body areas that are known to cause trouble, such as weak lower backs and rebellious pinky toes.

Working as a team, they attempt to set realistic goals, which can be achieved in part thanks to the provided gourmet protein diets. In addition to the four-phase long-term plan, the clinic also offers body-sculpting services such as wraps and LipoLaser.

Before treatments, clients take a thorough intake exam, which covers questions about their lifestyle, health history, and the current issues that plague them. Practitioners then take this information, along with an evaluation of the client’s emotional state, to prescribe a holistic course of therapy. This treatment plan could include physical therapy, therapeutic massage, nutritional counseling, or chiropractic care.
