We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As chiropractors who care about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Stephanie has the expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, sciatica, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
Your body is an amazing creation that can accomplish numerous miraculous tasks including creating new life. In many cases, fertility issues may be associated with improper nervous system function. Chiropractors are nervous system specialists and reducing interference in the nervous system is their primary goal. While chiropractic adjustments can help infertility by removing nervous system blockages to the reproductive system, it can help any woman who is planning to become pregnant by addressing whole health wellness and easing back pain, headaches, neck pain, and other discomforts before your body undergoes the stress of growing a baby. Keeping the spine properly aligned, and clearing the nervous system of excessive interference is one of your best options to help your body function in harmony with the way it was designed.
During the months of pregnancy, women naturally take all steps necessary to ensure that they are healthy as well as their baby. They visit their doctor routinely; take the vitamins their body needs to stay strong and to enhance their immune system. Along with visits to their OB, many women also routinely visit a prenatal chiropractor for the additional care they need for a safe, healthy and easier pregnancy.

You’ve just carried your beautiful bundle of joy around for nine months, and your body has gone through a lot of changes in order to accomplish this feat. It’s not just the childbirth itself that causes the misalignment, but rather your posture while the baby grew and grew. You stood differently, sat differently, walked differently, and slept differently, especially during your third trimester. Your body was just different and your spine is feeling it.
A postpartum pelvic adjustment will work wonders in helping you get pain relief and help you be at your best to care for your newborn.
Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!
At Balanced Care Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Hoffman Estates chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
