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.
Gene Aiello, a doctor of chiropractic and licensed acupuncturist, works alongside a talented team of three to aid patients at Advanced Chiropractic Care and Acupuncture, Ltd. His team, another chiropractic and acupuncturist and two massage therapists, uses detailed neurological and orthopedic assessments to bolster health amid equipment for x-rays and lab tests. The information they glean allows Drs. Aiello and John Kim to create treatment plans that include low-force chiropractic techniques, several physical therapies, and massage, among other services. Allergy testing also plays its part—using kinesiology, Dr. Aiello can use a laser acupuncture treatment to desensitize the patients, finally allowing them to play in freshly cut grass or see why freshly cut grass isn’t a popular ice-cream flavor.
When it comes to alleviating pain, Doctor of Chiropractic Shelly Posejpal and her staff understand that there isn't a one-size-fits-all solution. That's why they take into account each patient's symptoms and health history before recommending a course of treatment. For chronic pain they may recommend spinal or soft tissue manipulation, while injuries may require techniques like electrical muscle stimulation. Optimal's team of massage therapists, meanwhile, can help encourage the body to heal itself by customizing treatments that draw on Swedish, sports, deep-tissue, and pre-natal therapy. Of course, a proper diet can play an optimal role in alleviating chronic symptoms, and so Dr. Posejpal and company also hold nutrition counseling sessions designed to help clients make healthier choices and resolve any anger they may be harboring towards breakfast meats.
