The healthcare practitioners at Advanced Physical Medicine utilize advanced technology in their comprehensive, multifaceted approach to pain management, physical therapy, and fitness. Chiropractic physicians treat injuries and misaligned spines with therapies that include decompression machines, and acupuncture sessions address chronic pain from sciatica or carpal-tunnel symptoms acquired while positioning full-size construction cranes over vending-machine toys. Physical therapists focus on rehabilitating patients who have suffered accidental injuries, incorporating innovative ultrasound and light-therapy treatments to promote healing. To encourage wellness from the inside out, certified colonic therapists rid intestines of accumulated waste and toxins, and weight-loss experts help clients to overcome house clutter by creating extra storage space in their pants.
Both the Chicago and Oak Park locations welcome guests with an abundance of natural light and cheerful green exercise machines.

When it first opened its doors in 2000, the European Foot and Ankle Clinic set out to keep feet healthy by combining conventional medical treatments and holistic practices. Over the past 12 years, this unique approach to treatment has garnered a following, and the clinic gradually expanded to 10 locations throughout Chicago. At each location, multilingual doctors in podiatric medicine treat issues ranging from heel pain to toenail fungus to chronic stubbed toes caused by regularly throwing childlike temper tantrums.

As coheadliner of Integrated Health and Wellness Centers, Doctor of Chiropractic Antonio Bifero applies what he teaches as a professor at the National University of Health Sciences to help patients recover from and avoid preventable diseases. He prides himself on his ability to get "to the source of the underlying condition and work diligently to make my patients’ quality of life improve greatly.”
Just as diligent, his partner, Doctor of Chiropractic Louis Luna, builds his practice around functional body mechanics, focused functional rehabilitation, and neuromuscular repatterning. Together, they lead a staff of doctors, nurses, and massage therapists that enhances well-being with a variety of all-purpose services mirroring integrative medical spas in Europe. Through custom treatments plans that include a new diet, personalized exercises, and self-affirming back pats, the center helps patients heal and proactively change their lifestyles.
With a practice located inside the Pav YMCA health club, Doctor of Chiropractic Daniel V. Fortuna doesn't seem like a regular chiropractor. That's because he isn't. He doesn't limit his care to treating back-related illness, and he takes full advantage of the facilities at the YMCA. Before treatments, he sits down one-on-one with patients to craft the best plan of care for them, often relying on aquatic and physical therapy.
His back-adjusting services treat all kinds of ailments, from the pain of arthritis and migraines to soothing whiplash or disc injuries. His expertise gives him the ability to remedy sports-related injuries as well, and patients with osteoporosis find relief under his gentle adjustments. He pays special attention to new patients, as his mission statement is to work with newcomers to realize uncompromising excellence in medical care.
Dr. Timothy Zelko, a board-certified physician with six years of liposuction-specific experience, oversees the fat-cell-siphoning procedures at ZBodySculpt. After decades as a board-certified physician, Dr. Zelko turned his focus to liposuction—and discovered that despite the huge demand for the slimming procedure, people often avoided it out of fear, discomfort, cost, and allergies to doctors. This realization prompted him to seek out alternative forms of fat reduction, and Dr. Zelko now treats his patients with minimally invasive and noninvasive procedures that require little to no downtime, reduced cost, and local anesthesia for fewer complications.
