The experienced massage therapists at Mobile Healing Hands travel to their clients’ homes, places of business, and favorite subway stations to relax tense bodies. They dispense the long, gliding strokes of a Swedish massage, trigger-point techniques for extra stubborn muscles, and heated lava stones during massage sessions.
Years ago, a friend advised Doctor of Chiropractic Brian Russell to visit a chiropractor after he injured his back during a workout. He was unfamiliar with chiropractic work, but trusted his friend's advice. Not only did the treatments work, but the philosophy of drug-free care also appealed to him. Russell decided to earn his own chiropractic degree at the National University of Health Sciences.
Today, Dr. Russell treats patients at Russell Chiropractic Care with the same techniques that brought him relief. Spinal decompression gently expands the vertebrae, allowing them to properly realign, and electrical muscle stimulation speeds the healing of injured muscles. Massages and acupuncture promote healthier bodies and minds. Patients can also find relief from foot pain with orthotics designed to slip into shoes.
If the body is an instrument, then Doctor Albertina Logan is a professional tuner of corporeal pegs. With a background in chiropractic and massage, her office treats areas of chronic pain and tension, marrying a medical understanding of anatomy with alternative medicinal approaches. She believes that prevention is the best medicine when it comes to injuries, so she provides education to help patients understand their bodies both through her website and her Outreach Program.
Dr. Pat Calcagno and his team of physicians, therapists, and trainers at Olympia Chiropractic marshal clients toward good health at four Chicago-area locations. Through chiropractic services, athletic training, and physical and massage therapy, they treat conditions extending from lower back pain and headaches to stress and injuries related to sports. They also employ some of the industry's latest technologies, including the Alter-G antigravity treadmill and the Pro-Adjuster, a computerized instrument that scans the spine for problem spots.
At their three locations, Illinois Wellness Group’s licensed doctors of chiropractic bypass mere symptoms to address the root causes of health problems. The doctors use their patients’ medical history, x-rays, and skills learned from attending yearly education seminars to gently manipulate spines back into alignment with adjustments and massage as opposed to Jedi mind tricks.
