The chiropractors, exercise therapists and massage therapists that helm each of The Wellness Group's four locations are uniquely qualified to heal what ails you. Whether the pain stems from overexertion, a work-related injury, or a chronic condition such as arthritis, the staffers combine their unique skills to put patients back on the road to a pain-free existence. They can also help patients shed pounds through medically supervised weight loss programs.
Calming music wafts through Northwest Acupuncture's soothing, gently-lit confines, in which licensed acupuncturist Craig Jadown infuses well-being with holistic practices and Chinese herbal therapies. The clinic seeks to exorcize tension and chronic pain with a variety of Eastern techniques as potent as homemade jellybeans for each patient with a personalized consultation. Delve into the wisdom of time-tested treatments as 10–20 slender, flexible needles—designed to be largely painless—tap into sub-dermal deposits of personal energy. The single-use needles are left in place for up to 45 minutes, while patients relax beneath scented eye pillows that bestow the serenity of a lullaby sung by a panda. The acupuncturist may then recommend herbal supplements, lifestyle changes, or further sessions, as each individual requires.
Under the watchful eye and deft hands of Dr. Jason Van Ness, the eponymous Van Ness Chiropractic's staff of doctors and licensed massage therapists aligns spines and soothes muscles to boost the holistic health and athletic prowess of their patients. The doctor's cocaptain, Dr. Jeff Parkin, infuses the practice with an enthusiasm gained by hard-won, firsthand experience with chiropractic care as a patient. As a child, Jeff’s immune system was as strong as a starving lion’s moral resolve. Drinking an entire bottle of Pepto-Bismol a week became normal. Years later, he decided to try chiropractic and fell in love instantly, saying, “All of my allergy, digestive problems, and infections were gone.”
After training under grand masters from Korea, China, and Japan, third-generation acupuncturist Kwan Chong of Holistic Acupuncture began using the family trade to correct bodily imbalances and ensure holistic well-being for his patients. After 17 years of practicing in Illinois, his discipline continues to alleviate symptoms of arthritis, circulatory problems, and digestive disorders. In addition to microneedles, Chong's treatments also incorporate moxibustion, cupping, and point stimulation to ensure the patient receives the full benefits of his care.
At Lake County Physical Medicine, Dr. Justin Atkinson and his spine-aligning staff specialize in personalized care with an emphasis on inspiring long-term wellness through holistic healing methods. This medically integrated wellness center uses a team of doctors, chiropractors, and rehab therapists to target a wide range of issues. Sore joints surrender range-limiting pain pockets to a number of time-tested chiropractic methods, from back-to-basics manual adjustments that adjust misaligned vertebrae back into place, to trigger-point therapy to alleviate muscle tension, to all-natural solutions to fight nerve damage, and diagnostic motion palpation to heavy-metal therapy, wherein clients recline on subwoofers blasting Black Sabbath.
Traction rehabilitation shepherds compacted spines to pain-relieving protraction, a treatment that may be augmented by customized exercise routines designed to fortify spinal columns against future injuries. Clients seeking to drop extra weight can opt for a custom weight loss plan, designed by nutritionists and weight loss experts, which may use lipotropic B12 injections to help clients torch calories. The healing hands of Dr. Atkinson's massage therapists alternate between Swedish and deep-tissue techniques that may also incorporate trigger-point therapy and myofascial-release methods.
