The eye doctors at Family Eye Physicians, which include an ophthalmologist with a resume that lists advanced training in pediatric eye care a position as chief resident of John Stroger Hospital, employ the latest technology to perform preventative and restorative services. To diagnose eye issues, they create three-dimensional images with high-resolution optical coherence tomography and use a technique called fluorescein angiography, in which a fluorescent dye is injected into the arm to highlight ocular abnormalities, such as deposits beneath the retina or blood vessel patterns that resemble Elvis. The highly trained team can improve cataract patients' vision at all distances via intraocular lens implants, or make glasses and contacts obsolete with microkeratome or bladeless LASIK vision-correction surgery.
The doctors of chiropractic at Chiro One Wellness Centers put patients at the core of their efforts. Though the centers are spread the country, with locations in Illinois, Kentucky and Texas, the company's mission remains to help patients and their surrounding communities reach their maximum potential through a combination of customized chiropractic treatment plans and education.

In their efforts to improve communication in the central nervous system by addressing nerve interference, chiropractors provide spinal adjustments and supplemental treatments such as cervical traction, therapeutic exercise and balance-strengthening wobble boards. Their practice extends far beyond the wellness centers, however: community-outreach efforts take them to health fairs, offsite spinal screenings, and complimentary workshops on a range of wellness topics. They also devote themselves to nonprofit work with several organizations, including The Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Greater Chicago Food Depository. At the Chiros Care Free Wellness Center, they examine and treat Chicago's homeless and HIV-positive population, fueled by their belief that everyone should have access to expert preventive care.

The center's array of services also includes weight-management treatments, heart-disease and stroke screenings, and anti-aging management medicine.
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 9 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.
Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack opened the first HealthSource office in 2006 and has watched his business take flight. Named No. 1 New Franchise by Entrepreneur in 2011 and profiled in Inc., HealthSource has grown to more than 400 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.

A progressive-rehab program works with body areas that are known to cause trouble, such as weak lower backs and rebellious pinky toes.
