The licensed massage therapists at Bridgeview, Orland & Romeoville Chiropractic Centers extinguish pain and soreness with muscle-melting Swedish-massage techniques. Tender tendons relax under smooth strokes and gentle kneads as increased circulation rushes extra oxygen and magic school buses to aching muscles. Therapists target stiffness in joints with applied pressure and stretching techniques while eradicating toxins trapped in knots. Unwind minor kinks with an express 30-minute treatment or target a network of knots with a 60-minute session to leave bodies more relaxed than a nudist colony’s dress code.
After sustaining an injury at a previous job, state-licensed Doctor of Chiropractic Frank Frydrych came to the field of chiropractic when he found his prescribed physical therapy didn’t live up to its billing. Rather than continue on an unproductive course, he took charge of his own healing. Today, he applies his findings to help others overcome their own medical issues, often faster than with conventional treatments.
Despite the breadth of healing therapies and procedures at his command, the doctor focuses his skills on the principles of biomechanics. During treatments, he investigates clients' deficiencies and imbalances and corrects them through services such as chiropractic manipulations, pain therapy, and acupuncture. Performed alone or within a multifaceted plan for overall health restoration, the procedures can tackle maladies related to musculoskeletal issues, digestive problems, and sports-related injuries.
Reflections of Health Integrative Care Center's trained staff dissipate tension-filled nodules through a one-hour massage and wellness practices tailored for each client. Let the licensed therapists decompress overstressed bodies with the deep-tissue massage, in which a muscle manipulator's dexterous digits delve into the deeper layers of tissue to release chronic stress and cooped-up sardines. Treat tired tootsies to the foot-centric reflexology massage, during which specific nerve zones in the feet are targeted to bring harmony to tone-deaf Achilles tendons, or unwind as a therapist renders relaxation and physiological benefits through a hot-stone massage. Other available massages include Swedish, sports, and prenatal.
Brothers Phung Van and Vuong Van have a lot in common: both played sports, sustained injuries, and ultimately embraced chiropractic care as a way to heal. Today, the two doctors share their knowledge with patients in their practice, using modern and traditional techniques to relieve pain and ward off future injury. Adjustments and orthotics realign the body, while kinesio taping and rehabilitative exercises help clients get back on the court. The office also promotes peace and wellness with massage therapy and acupuncture treatments.
When several MRIs and doctor's appointments led to Katie Summers's diagnosis of osteochondritis in her right ankle, she was understandably concerned—running was her life. So instead of surgery, she gave acupuncture a shot. It took only one session for Katie to find relief from her pain, and it had such an impact that she decided to pursue exercise science, clinical nutrition, and, of course, acupuncture as a career path. Now in the comfort of Pathways Center for Health & Wellness, Katie can ease deeply rooted pain with a personalized acupuncture session.
