Dr. Avani Shah is an experienced, licensed chiropractor serving Mount Prospect and Hanover Park, IL. Using chiropractic techniques, she has been freeing people from pain for years! Chiropractic is a completely natural health care solution that focuses on the health of the spine and nervous system, which, in case you didn’t know, is crucial for proper functioning of the entire body!
The benefits of chiropractic treatment are numerous. First of all, chiropractic makes you feel great! Additionally, chiropractic treats the cause of pain rather than just treating the symptoms. It restores normal nerve supply, improves mobility, improves athletic performance, improves posture, relieves headaches, allows for better sleep, and can stop or slow spinal degeneration. Chiropractic also leads to quicker recovery after injury and allows you to get back to your daily routine as fast as possible. In many cases, chiropractic offers instant relief from pain- and that’s without the use of drugs or surgery. Last but definitely not least, many of our patients are pleasantly surprised to find that chiropractic is also very affordable!
At our Mount Prospect chiropractic clinic, we offer a variety of services in addition to chiropractic adjustments, such physiotherapy, massage therapy, and nutritional counseling. At ChiroCenter, we pride ourselves on our holistic approach to treatment and believe in utilizing a number of tools and techniques to get you healthy!
For now, let us highlight the benefits of one of our methods: massage therapy. If you have ever had a massage, you know how relaxing it can be. Massage provides emotional and spiritual balance, and has the power to bring a person to a truly peaceful state. But it does more than just relax your body and mind. Massage has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety by lowering heart rate and cortisol levels. Stress relief is a key component for anyone trying to lead a healthy lifestyle. In fact, many diseases are directly related to high stress levels. Massage has also been proven to lower blood pressure, increase blood circulation, improve sleep, relieve headaches, and helps you recover faster from injury.
Notice a pattern here? Massage therapy and chiropractic offer similar benefits! And this is the reason why we utilize both at ChiroCenter. But which is better? The answer is: it depends on your unique health issue. But in many cases, massage and chiropractic therapy complement each other. Together, they facilitate the body’s natural healing process. When massaged prior to being adjusted, the muscle tissue is more relaxed and this can lead to a more effective adjustment because the joints will be more pliable. Or, when massaged after, the muscle tissue has a tendency to relax around the newly aligned spine, enabling the adjustment to last longer. After your initial consultation with us, we will determine whether massage therapy will be appropriate to incorporate into your individualized treatment plan.
With properly functioning spinal joints and nerves (along with a healthy lifestyle) your body is better able to heal itself. And your health is your most important asset. A small investment of your time and money to care for your health will be far less time consuming and expensive than trying to recover it when faced with a crisis. So let us help you make your health and well-being a priority!
