What is Chiropractic?
A health-care profession that focuses on the spine and other joints of the body, and their connection to the nervous system. The word “chiropractic” means “to be done by hand.” Chiropractors use adjustments to restore joint function and support the nervous system. They help patients maintain optimal health while avoiding unnecessary drugs or surgery. An estimated 50 million Americans see a chiropractor each year.
How many visits will I need?
At Elite Healthcare, we want to help you get out of pain rapidly. This usually takes 4-6 visits, but can take more or less depending on how long you have had the condition. As your discomfort becomes minimal, we will shift focus to injury prevention. This involves retraining functional movement patterns and reconditioning muscles that may be weak or overly tight.
What should I wear to my appointment?
Athletic clothing that allows you to move freely and lets the doctor easily examine the area of your complaint.
Do I have to be referred by a doctor?
No! Our Chiropractic Physicians are licensed primary care providers (PCPs) under the Illinois Medical Practice Act, the same law as your family Medical Doctor.
