Chicago Naprapathy and Massage Therapy

What is Naprapathy?

Naprapathic medicine utilizes manual  manipulation, modern modalities (ultrasound and electrical stimulation), and nutritional counseling to treat connective disorders.
Doctors of Naprapathic Medicine – a Naprapath – put to use their years of study of neuromyology (the study of nerve and muscle), as well as their knowledge of physiology, kinesiology, and nutrition to enhance the treatment of their patients.
Common conditions that respond well to Naprapathic treatments are back and neck pain, pain in extremities, herniated disks, bursitis and tendinitis, arthritis, repetitive use injuries, sports injuries, headaches and migraines and injuries due to work. 
Is a Naprapath Licensed As A Medical Provider?

Yes, Chicago Naprapath attend a four year program that includes a clinical internship. They must pass a state licensing examination to open a practice.  Naprapaths are also required to stay updated on new developments in their field through attending clinical seminars and pertinent presentations.

 How Does Naprapathic Medicine Differ From Chiropractic? 

Chiropractic approach is based on the subluxation theory: bones that are out of alignment are realigned by high velocity techniques.  Naprapathic Medicine is based on the belief that it is the muscle, ligament, or tendon that holds and moves the bone, so they have to be balanced for the bones to be aligned. This allows for the slow, gentle movements to stretch the tensed, contracted tissue to relieve your pain.

What should I Expect From My Visit?

Your first visit begins with an extensive review of your health history followed by an evaluation of body alignment, muscle strength, and joint range of motion. Your evaluation and treatment will include: Review and discussion of past medical history including thorough history about area of pain, testing range of motion, neurological assessment,  manual exam and manipulation as appropriate, and adjunct therapies such as ultrasound or electric therapy.   You will leave feeling regenerated and the pain retreating.  Please, allow us about 90 minutes for your first visit, about 45 for the subsequent ones to accomplish this.

Will My Insurance Cover The Treatment?

We are happy to look into your insurance coverage and benefits for you.  Naprapathy is often covered but benefits may differ from client to client.   Without checking into insurance benefits, we would not know this information.

Do you Refer To Other Specialists?

Yes, we do. We also welcome input from your primary care or other providers.  In fact, Naprapathic Medicine is gaining recognition as a partner in the integrative medicine: some Naprapaths have hospital privileges, and many health care providers refer patients to us.

 

TESTIMONIAL: “As a recreational cyclist and soccer player, I often sustained injuries. When a persistent knee pain prevented me from practicing the sports I like I became a little depressed and gained a few pounds. I was referred to Chicago MedSpa & Clinic for their Naprapathy and Massage Therapy. I explained in detail what my problem was and after analysis he found the source of my problem. He provided me treatment and educated me on how to maintain a healthy knee. Because of his treatment and advise, I am back on the bike and shedding some pounds”
