Back Pain Doctor Palatine, IL

A wellness clinic can provide you with the healing you need no matter what your ailment may be. With a variety of medical services such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, holistic healing and functional medicine there is a route to wellness for every patient. If you are seeking non-invasive techniques to help you overcome an illness or disorder, a clinic like ours focused on total wellness and preventative care rather than just short-term treatments is right for you.


Acupuncture is a type of traditional Chinese medicine that has been used for centuries to treat everything from nausea to anxiety. During an acupuncture session, we will place tiny, hair-sized needles in the skin at various pressure points of the body. The process modifies the flow of energy in the body. It improves circulation, providing healing, reduces pain in the body and balances qi (also known as chi).

In addition to treating nausea and anxiety, acupuncture can be performed to provide relief for headaches, chronic back pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, high blood pressure, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, fibromyalgia and a variety of neurological disorders among other ailments.


Chiropractic care focuses on healing musculoskeletal and nervous system complications and disorders through spinal manipulations. Chiropractic services treat neuromusculoskeletal problems and reduce pain in the body. They can also be used to treat headaches. Chiropractors use hands-on and holistic methods to provide medical care. These methods are typically drug-free. A chiropractor may also provide nutritional and lifestyle recommendations.


Holistic healing is an alternative form of medical care that focuses on natural routes to healing and the use of herbal medications. This type of medicine addresses the whole person rather than just the current medical issue. Most illnesses stem from other lifestyle choices or another problem within the body. An unconventional look at a medical problem may provide the right treatment to prevent and heal disease.

If optimal total health is achieved, smaller infections and illnesses occur less frequently. The physician-patient relationship is an important part of the treatment process including trust, healing, recommendations on diet, exercises and lifestyle.


A primary service we provide is known as functional medicine, which is another form of care that focuses heavily on the patient\’s well-being. Understanding the patient will help pinpoint the origin of a disease. With the functional medicine treatment, we only provide treatment options after considering the unique genetic makeup plus the current lifestyle of each individual patient. Functional medicine integrates traditional Western medical practices with integrative medicine.

If conventional forms of medicine in the past do not help or you have an interest in receiving acupuncture or chiropractic care as a supplement to your current medical treatment plan, we offer a variety of services that can help. At our office, we can tailor the unique approaches to your care to your exact needs. To learn more about how we can help you, schedule an appointment with our wellness clinic today.
