"My low back is killing me. Its painful just to get up from sitting."
"I must say the energy that I have now is incredible. My medical doctor is so pleased with my blood work I'm off Lipitor."
Patients initially come to my office because they are experiencing pain. This painful condition has either come on suddenly, as in a trauma or gradually over time. When this pain has affected their ability to work, limit their social life or stop their workouts, they usually had enough and are ready to start a treatment program. Our goals in this phase is to decrease pain and improve function.
By using a number of cutting edge treatment techniques and modalities that are designed to work together. We offer a range of select therapies which are customized to your specific condition.
Completing phase one will help get you out of pain. However, in my experience, there are underlying reasons why your pain first began. In this phase we begin to look at the why behind your pain began. How is your posture. Are your ears in line with your shoulders, hips and ankles. Are your shoulders and hip on the same level. Do your knees cave in or bow out. Are your feet flat or caved in? We'll also look at muscular imbalances, your stress levels and which exercises you're doing or not performing correctly. Corrective actions can then be implemented to reverse these complicating factors.
This is were we begin work on developing optimized function. This phase is optional, many patients who have become pain-free, improved their posture and corrected their muscular imbalances wish to go further into enhancing their human performance. Comprehensive blood work and urine hormone testing is performed. This data is used to customized workouts, diet and
supplements specifically for you to reach your goals

"Our family has been leveraging the services of Dr. Mike for several years, and we are very happy with this new location in Streamwood, where he offers creative and aggressive treatment as well as after care education (heating, stretching, exercises - that the patient is responsible for) to ensure optimal recovery. I am a fairly active walker (3-10 mi/ day) and weight lifter (3-5 days/ week) and have had a few injuries over the years as a result of poor posture or general clumsiness... such as a recent (June 2016) high ankle sprain from power washing the walkway (twisted my ankle by not watching were I was backing up). Dr. Mike successfully reduced my recovery time by 2-3 weeks through targeted deep tissue massage, structural adjustments, ultrasound and electrical muscle stimulation therapies and Rock Tape kinesiotaping. The pictures I've shared are from a shoulder issue resulting from years of working on the computer, travel, etc., that became extremely painful after a training session at the Speed School in St. Charles, IL"
