Services at Essential Chiropractic and Health Center in Palos Hills

Chiropractic Care

Our chiropractor in Palos Hills is committed to whole health emphasized by the chiropractic lifestyle. His patients can optimize wellness with a range of services that include regular chiropractic care, physical therapy, lower back pain relief, sport injury treatment, massage and rehabilitation.

Back pain in Palos Hills can be a result of many factors. Dr. McKenna and his chiropractic staff will determine the underlying cause of your pain. Our Palos Hill chiropractor focuses on conditions such as back pain, automobile accident injuries, sciatica, headaches, and sports injuries. He also screens for and treats scoliosis and treats headaches at their source.

Motor Vehicle Accidents & Whiplash

Have you recently experienced whiplash as a result of an automobile accident? Dr. McKenna would like to see you just following your accident to get you fast relief/care before pain and the effects of injury have an opportunity to set into your soft tissues and vertebrae. Movement beyond normal range of motion can disrupt how the physiology communicates and also result in tears.

Another essential reason to contact our Palos Hills chiropractor immediately following your car accident is to ensure your health insurance company will cover you for treatment. It is much easier and efficient to document and attribute your injury to your accident if it is reported and treated immediately following the incident.

You may have been seen by another doctor following your accident. It is our goal to provide non-surgical treatment to realign your spine. We may also help you avoid strong medication.

Sports Injuries

Common sports injuries include tennis and golfer's elbow, knee issues and neck pain. Sport injury treatment that includes chiropractic adjustments, massage and physical therapy can all be provided to help you heal.

Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation

Injuries often lead to range of motion or loss of function. Our rehabilitation program includes chiropractic, massage and physical therapy to restore correct range of motion and function.

Take charge of your total health with our caring staff now by calling us at (708) 233-0022 for an appointment.
