Pediatric Chiropractor, Effingham, IL

Our Approach

Our approach is simple. We believe that health is our most valuable possession. Because we generally meet people after they’ve developed symptoms and have lost their normal function and health, our commitment to helping is three-fold. Click the links below to learn more.

Repair and Restore


Most patients start chiropractic care in our office because they have lost something. Whether you're a parent with a fussy child missing a decent night's sleep, a teenager struggling to focus in class, or simply frustrated by how difficult it has become to get out of bed in the morning, that's where we start . We want to take a look "under the hood" at that nervous system and find out exactly where the body has been broken down and can no longer adapt. Once we find that, we go to work!  

During this initial stage of intensive care, we have several obligations. A few of which include: 

  1. Uncover the underlying cause of the health problem

  2. Develop a care plan to produce the fastest results possible 

  3. Offer ways patients can participate in their recovery 

It is important to understand that relief of symptoms often does not mean you are ‘fixed’. Again, symptoms mean that something is not functioning at it's best. Fortunately, as we move toward improved function, we almost always see that those things our patients have lost, are gradually restored as the nervous system becomes more connected and free from interference. Along the way, we re-evaluate the connection of the nervous system by using technology aimed at measuring function. Read more about that technology here.  



Our "Repair and Restore" care has a clear and objective end point. Once we reach the goals laid out during your initial exam and subsequent progress evaluations,  we encourage you to continually work toward achieving the highest levels of health you can. Stress never goes away, so why eliminate a very effective tool aimed at reducing stress and supporting ideal function? Regular chiropractic adjustments can help keep the nervous system stay well connected, allowing your body to maintain the goals we have achieved together. 


In addition, through educational opportunities (like this website, our Facebook page, our Instagram feed, our blog, and regular events) we make sure you understand how the role of Chiropractic care in mind and body wellness stands the test of time and aging. Our desire is to see our patients abandon the "traditional" sickness care model (waiting for symptoms and then taking action), in favor of actively pursuing and maintaining health!
