Services & Techniques in Orland Park
Orland Park Integrated Health Center provides medical and holistic treatment options for individuals with back and neck pain, headaches, sports injuries, musculoskeletal ailments and arthritic joints.
Chiropractic services in Orland Park Chiropractic care are the foundation of our treatment options. It encompasses spinal and extremity joint adjustments and is used to help heal injuries and prevent future injuries. The adjustments ensure your vertebrae and extremity joints are properly aligned. This removes the stress from the surrounding ligaments and soft tissues, improves local circulation and reduces inflammation, which helps reduce recovery times and pain.
Non-surgical spinal decompression is used to increase the spaces between the discs. This helps heal herniated and bulging discs and reduces the pain associated with pinched or compressed nerves. It works by using mechanical traction to gently stretch certain sections of your spine. Once the spaces are increased, your herniated or bulging discs will slowly start to retract and refill with fluid.
Massage therapy can help decrease recovery times, especially when it is combined with chiropractic care, corrective exercises, and lifestyle adjustments. Massage helps decrease muscle and joint soreness, and it helps to increase flexibility and range of motion. It has also been known to lower the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese treatment option that utilizes long, thin needles to stimulate total body healing and wellness. It can be used to lower pain and speed healing for many different types of injuries and ailments, including back and neck pain, headaches, Fibromyalgia, and osteoarthritis. Acupuncture can be used by itself or combined with other services.
During this non-operative, outpatient procedure, the physician injects a pain relief medication called HYALGAN@ into the knee joint. The HYALGAN will help the knee move smoothly, reducing or relieving the pain of osteoarthritis.

Physical therapy is an excellent non-invasive option for treating your pain. Whether your pain is long-term, chronic, or is related to a recent injury, Orland Park Integrated Health Center can help you move toward a pain-free life. Physical therapy is effective in treating sports injuries, osteoporosis-related pain, lower back pain, and joint and soft tissue injuries. Our physical therapists can work with you to create an individual treatment plan consisting of various movements and exercises that, over time, can increase strength, range of motion, and other body mechanics while reducing your pain.
Acute pain is often normal – it’s your body’s way of alerting you that you are possibly injured or just need to take care of yourself. Chronic pain, on the other hand, is entirely different. It is persistent. Pain can last for weeks, months, or even years. Maybe the pain began because of an injury – a car accident, an infection, a sports mishap – or maybe the pain started for no discernable reason, without evidence of injury or damage.
For pain that just won’t go away, Orland Park Integrated Health Center offers state-of-the-art technology and treatment, which can help provide immediate relief.
Light plays an amazingly wide range of roles in supporting life on this plant, from the photosynthesis that fuels plant growth to the ways the sun’s rays help our bodies produce Vitamin D. But did you know that an amplified beam of light can actually help you recover from injuries more quickly and experience drug-free pain relief? Believe it or not, lasers can serve as a potent healing tool and wellness aid — which is why we’re proud to offer laser therapy here at Orland Park Integrated Health Center.
Trigger Point Injections
The relief provided to patients through direct pain management is an important service. A very common treatment to alleviate peripheral nerve pain is a Trigger Point Injection. This is a simple treatment delivered in our office and can provide both short and long-term pain relief.
Corrective exercises are targeted exercises that are designed to strengthen injured or weak muscles. When you come into our office for a corrective exercise session, you will be instructed on how to perform the exercises and taken through a routine. We will also provide you with instruction sheets so that you can exercise at home. By performing the exercises both in our office and at home, we are giving you the best chance of making a speedy recovery.
Our physicians understand that you have daily tasks that you must perform while you are healing. However, performing a task wrong could reinjure the area or cause additional injuries. Here at Orland Park Integrated Health Center, we can suggest alternative ways to perform your daily tasks that will reduce your risk of re-injury while you are healing and help prevent future injuries.
Posture and Spinal Screenings
Maintaining good posture can help prevent many back and neck injuries. Our chiropractor in Orland Park can evaluate your posture and spine and make recommendations that will improve your posture and reduce your back pain. Regular posture screenings can also help diagnose certain back ailments, like Scoliosis, before they become severe. We can also recommend ergonomic changes for your home and work offices.
