The experienced staff members of Advanced Healthcare Center combine their individual talents with a holistic approach to medicine to give patients a long-term alternative to medications and surgery. Dr. Susie Warden, director, and her staff bolster backbones and overall health through spinal exams, adjustments, and inspirational sports montages. Resident massage therapists provide additional torso restoration with various massage techniques customized following chiropractic exams, and physical therapists strengthen muscular health through prescribed exercise regimens. The office's in-house medical physicians provide insight into metabolic cases, nutritional counselors construct dietary plans to nurture the body, and acupuncturists realign energy flows and destroy nearby balloons.
Dr. Scott Hallums's story is one that many chiropractors can relate to. After sustaining a series of debilitating injuries as a young man, he discovered that chiropractic medicine allowed his body to heal at a faster rate than more traditional remedies. Dr. Hallums still benefits from regular adjustments, but now he also passes on the favor at Wheaton Chiropractic Spine & Joint Center. Aside from adjustments, he manipulates soft tissue and stimulates muscle contractions with electric impulses that improve circulation and increase mobility.
When he isn't performing his own treatments, Dr. Hallums guides licensed massage therapist Dainius Gabrenas, who specializes in techniques ranging from Swedish and deep-tissue massage to more innovative approaches including reflexology and a stretching technique known as PNF. Beyond his ability to heal clients with a range of lifestyles and activities, Gabrenas keeps one more skill up his sleeve: he's able to communicate with his patients in English, Russian, Lithuanian, and Polish.

Doctor of Chiropractic Steve Petzel found the chiropractic world by necessity. When high-school football injuries threatened to permanently bench him, a trip to the local chiropractor provided him the treatment needed to continue. Since then, he's founded Adisi, a wellness practice offering chiropractic care and physical therapy as well as wellness seminars on topics such as stress management and insomnia. Dr. Petzel also works closely with licensed massage therapist David Leja, who ease chronic tension with flowing Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure.
