At Chiro-Med Health and Wellness Center in Orland Park, we take a holistic approach to helping your body heal itself naturally. Chiropractic techniques help patients recover from spinal injuries that might have occurred from accidents, workplace injuries, or medical spinal conditions. We have successfully treated patients with a variety of disorders including herniated disks, sciatica, whiplash, and soft tissue damage such as strains and sprains. The services we offer include a variety of chiropractic techniques, including spinal adjustment and decompression, massage therapy, laser therapy, physical therapy, and acupuncture.
Chiropractic Techniques: Spinal Adjustment and Decompression
Gentle manual adjustments can help move spinal discs back into their correct positions, taking the stress off nearby muscles and nerves. This improves your spinal motion and physical function.
Spinal decompression is a non-surgical technique that treats several spinal conditions that cause pain, such as herniated disks. Patients undergoing this therapy wear a harness while on a motorized table controlled by a chiropractor.
Massage therapy is a perfect complement to other chiropractic techniques, such as spinal adjustments. Massage improves blood flow and relieves pain. Our therapists use a variety of techniques including Swedish massage, deep tissue, trigger point, and myofascial release. We also specialize in massages for pregnant mothers and athletes.
Our laser therapy is different from the kind of laser therapy that makes precision cuts; instead, it passes right through the skin. This type of laser, known as "cold laser" or "low laser", can help you heal more quickly from a soft tissue injury, increase circulation, stimulate nerves, and decrease pain.
Physical therapy is another way we treat long-term chronic pain. It can help recovery from sports injuries, orthopedic conditions, and soft tissue injuries. Physical therapy can include passive treatment; such as ice, heat, ultrasound, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator (TENS) units; or active treatment such as strengthening or stretching exercises.
Acupuncture is the insertion of thin needles into the body in strategic locations. It is designed to relieve pain and to help the body manage stress.
