Frequently Asked Questions about Our Approach

Patients often come to us with questions regarding our unique approach to health care. Although we always welcome patients to call our office or stop by with questions, our team physicians and specialists has provided the answers to a few commonly asked questions regarding our services here.

What is your office's approach to chiropractic?

Our team of physicians assesses each patient individually, and develops a personal wellness plan to treat the specific needs of every person who comes to us for help. We offer a fully-integrated approach to chiropractic care, meaning our chiropractor works with a medical doctor, massage therapist, physical therapist, and maybe even an athletic trainer to offer patients total body wellness.

Do you recommend physical therapy for all patients?

No two patients are the same. For this reason, not everyone will require physical therapy to achieve optimal wellness. For patients recovering from work, sports, or vehicle accident related injuries, physical therapy might be the right option to ensure proper healing and reduce the probability of re-injury.

How does massage therapy fit into a wellness plan?

At Advanced Physical Medicine of Yorkville, we work with a team of specially licensed massage therapists, complementing chiropractic care, physical therapy, and our other medical services with massage therapy. Although many patients think of massage as a luxury, it truly promotes health through relaxing injured muscles, breaking up scar tissue, and releasing endorphins. Patients who integrate massage therapy into their wellness plans often enjoy swifter recoveries with less pain.

In what case would you recommend working with your athletic trainer?

Not every patient requires an athletic trainer as part of his or her total body wellness plan. Those individuals who have been prescribed nutritional or lifestyle counseling for weight loss and patients who have suffered a sports-related injury might benefit from the knowledge of our on staff physical trainers. Our physical trainers work with patients to develop personalized work out plans to safely promote weight loss or to stay in shape while protecting an injury as it heals.

Can I visit your office for general or internal medicine appointments?

We conveniently have a medical doctor on staff, serving our patients' wellness needs. Our medical doctor works with our other physicians and specialists to promote total body wellness. Our on staff medical doctor can treat you in the same office you visit for physical therapy, massage therapy, chiropractic care, and your athletic training.
