Advanced Physical Medicine employs a clean and gentle colon-hydrotherapy system that may detoxify the body and improve moods, among other benefits. First-time guests answer pertinent health questions during an intake session, elucidating health histories and eating habits. For roughly 40 minutes, water washes away impacted waste and some microorganisms, which may leave the body less vulnerable to indigestion, headaches, high blood pressure, and other ailments. Treatments include a traction table massage, in which a device sends soothing vibrations through the neck, mid-back, and lower back, while massaging feet and ankles with rollers, ensuring that clients can walk comfortably without having to tape pillows to their feet. One month’s worth of nutritional detox supplements aims to prolong the benefits of hydrotherapy and to complement healthy habits.
Advanced Physical Medicine
The healthcare practitioners at Advanced Physical Medicine utilize advanced technology in their comprehensive, multifaceted approach to pain management, physical therapy, and fitness. Chiropractic physicians treat injuries and misaligned spines with therapies that include decompression machines, and acupuncture sessions address chronic pain from sciatica or carpal-tunnel symptoms acquired while positioning full-size construction cranes over vending-machine toys. Physical therapists focus on rehabilitating patients who have suffered accidental injuries, incorporating innovative ultrasound and light-therapy treatments to promote healing. To encourage wellness from the inside out, certified colonic therapists rid intestines of accumulated waste and toxins, and weight-loss experts help clients to overcome house clutter by creating extra storage space in their pants.
Both the Chicago and Oak Park locations welcome guests with an abundance of natural light and cheerful green exercise machines. Giving back to the local community is a passion enjoyed by many on the staff, including podiatrist and college-level instructor Dr. Mary Ann Bender, who, along with her students, provides foot care at eight uninsured and homeless clinics in Chicago.
