Many of our patients come to Chicago Health & Physical Therapy to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel or headaches. While our practitioners will address each patient's specific condition with evidenced-based conservative care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with the treatment plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with pain? Our goal is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced physicians can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Do you know what brands you can trust? At our Chicago chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. Richard Dietzen can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Chicago community, we provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 773-282-6648 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
The Chinese called this ancient technique of using stone, bone or horn tools to break up scar tissue Gua Sha. More recently, this treatment has been resurrected using aluminum tools and is referred to in the physical therapy world as Graston Technique. IASTM is tremendously effective in pain conditions caused by scar tissue, chronic shortening of tissues and chronic muscle spasms. Though not typically painful during treatment, the procedure may leave superficial bruising.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most effective methods for not only treating pain, but also healing injury. Research has now shown acupuncture to be more effective than many medications for certain types of pain. Acupuncture works by multiple mechanisms including blocking transmission of pain to the brain, increasing pain tolerance, increasing circulation and elevating levels of the body's natural pain-blocking chemicals. Application of acupuncture can be varied depending on the diagnosis to be used for breaking up scar tissue and stimulating muscle healing (Dry Needling)
