Our desire to help people on their journey to health.  Whatever your goal, to maintain wellness or to find relief from a particular condition, we look forward to meeting with you.  This page will help you understand what you can expect during your initial visit.


After the doctor does a detailed analysis of the x-rays, you will return for your second visit.  The doctor will give you a report of findings based on the information gained from the examination and x-ray analysis.  

You will then receive your first adjustment.  The adjustment is very gentle - there is no twisting, cracking, or popping during the adjustment.     

Post adjustment x-rays are taken only after the first adjustment to confirm the spinal correction has been achieved.  At that point, the doctor will give recommendations for a treatment plan that is designed specifically for you.

Should you decide to work with us on your journey to health, we are happy to work out a payment plan that allows you to get the care you need at a rate you can afford.

The 1st step is to call to schedule an initial no-charge consultation with no obligation.  We value listening and understanding your story. 815-398-4500.

If the doctor thinks you may be a candidate for care, we will perform a thorough examination that involves chiropractic, medical orthopedic and neurologic tests. The goal here is not only to evaluate the joints, nerves and muscles, but we also seek to establish the underlying cause.

If you are a candidate for upper cervical care, and only if you decide to undergo care, we take precise, very low dose x-rays to determine how to restore balance to your spine.
