Sports medicine is an important and growing segment of our overall business.
We regularly provide soft tissue therapy to athletes ranging
from recreational runners all the way up to a gold
medal winning Paralympian.

One of the most dedicated athletes we are privileged to treat is Amanda Nobles.  Amanda is a health and physical education teacher at Cowherd Middle School in Aurora and a competitive figure bodybuilder.

Amanda was recently featured on the front cover of Suburban Life FIT Magazine, a publication dedicated to motivating and inspiring by sharing stories about local athletes who are pushing athletic boundaries.  Amanda's story of finding balance through bodybuilding while making a
difference in the lives of local kids is inspiring.

Way to go, Amanda!

Andy Wood, international sales director for Litecure LLC, recently interviewed Tim Macre, trainer for the NHLs'  Buffalo Sabres.

Macre is the first NHL trainer to use Litecure Class IV laser in the locker room.  Wood asked him how Litecure has helped him in the training room, and whether he would recommend it for other teams and/or sports.

Macre: The Litecure has been great this past season.  The effectiveness of this laser in reducing pain levels of foot and ankle contusions, AC join sprains and wrist sprains surprised even me.  The deep penetration of this unit even allowed for use on hip flexor and groin strains with excellend results.  Many of my players have identified the Litecure as a modality that truly helps them feel better and ask for it by name.

If you suffer from joint or muscle pain, Lindstrom Chiropractic invites you to learn how Litecure laser therapy can help you feel better,  just like hockey stars from the Buffalo Sabres.

Promoting the benefits of Chiropractic care is a year-around activity, because there are still many people who do not realize that Chiropractic care helps people live healthier lives.

The spotlight provided by National Chiropractic Health Care Month is another important way to deliver our message.

At Lindstrom Chiropractic, we offer state-of-the-art treatment spanning manipulative therapy (chiropractic), therapeutic massage, physical and sports therapy, exercise programs and deep tissue laser therapy - a real game-changer for treatment of pain and inflammation.

Lindstrom Chiropractic now offers LiteCure Deep Tissue Laser Therapy, a proven, non-invasive technique using laser energy to help reduce pain and inflammation.  Laser therapy is effective in treating chronic conditions, acute conditions and post surgical pain.

Laser therapy can be safely used as an adjunct or replacement for pharmaceutical drugs.  This pain relief treatment is FDA cleared and enables patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.

Laser therapy treatments last between 5 and 10 minutes with patients usually seeing results in 3 to 5 treatments.  (Dr. Tom will develop a treatment plan that is optimal for your condition.)

Laser treatments must be administered directly to skin, as laser light cannot penetrate through layers of clothing.  You will feel a soothing warmth as the therapy is administered.

If you are dealing with chronic or acute pain and inflammation, contact Lindstrom Chiropractic to develop a laser treatment plan optimal for your condition.

Periodically, Dr. Tom attends  educational seminars to ensure his patients receive the very best chiropractic care available.  Most recently, he attended a  3 day seminar at the Marriott Chicago Naperville sponsored by the Illinois Chiropractic Association.  (Dr. Tom has been an active member of the ICS for more than 33 years.)

At the seminar, Dr. Tom participated in sessions detailing the latest treatments and techniques addressing these specific areas of chiropractic concern:

  - Evaluation and treatment of common hip, pelvic and low back injuries

  - Disc injury and whiplash

  - Posture rehabilitation and strong exercise

  - Kinesiology taping redefined: taping movements, not muscles

At Lindstrom Chiropractic, we want our patients to know that they are receiving the very latest "best practices" in chiropractic care and therapeutic massage.  Participating in professional seminars is one of the ways we keep this commitment to excellence.

How Does Chiropractic Work?

Chiropractic recognizes that humans are self-healing, self-regulating organisms controlled by their nervous systems.  Picture an unending flow of instructions from your brain, traveling down your spinal cord and out to every organ and tissue in your body.  Messages are then sent  back to your brain along the same pathways confirming whether or not your body is functioning properly.

A subluxation - improper position or motion of the moving bones of your spine - can interfere with this information exchange by irritating nerves and compromising affected organs and tissues.

Chiropractic adjustments address these underlying problem, restoring healthy mind/body communications.  Dr. Tom isn't happy unless your mind/body superhighway is functioning properly!

What's An Adjustment And Is It  Safe?

Chiropractic adjustments usually involve a quick thrust to restore position or add motion to spinal joints that aren't functioning properly.  And, yes, adjustments are remarkably safe.

In fact, chiropractic care often provides an extra layer of protection by avoiding drugs that may only mask the problem or risky surgery that may not be necessary.  Dr. Tom is also thoroughly trained to identify the rare patient for whom chiropractic care might be unsuited.

How Do You get Subluxations?

There are three basic causes of subluxations:  physical, emotional and chemical.

Common physical causes are slips and falls, accidents, repetitive motions and improper lifting.

Emotional causes can include grief, anger or fear.

Common chemical causes include alcohol, drugs, poor diet or even pollution.

How Do I Know If I Have A Subluxation?

Remember that mind/body superhighway?  This unique message system will usually tell you if you should seek chiropractic care.

However, some subluxations can be present before the warning signs appear, much like tooth decay or cancer.  If you have dealt with one or more of the basic causes of subluxation - physical, emotional or chemical - a chiropractic evaluation might be in order, even if your current pain is minimal.  A thorough examination can show the location and severity of any subluxations you may have.

Do you find it difficult to look over your shoulder?  Do you have a constant pulling or throbbing pain in your neck?  Do you hear a grinding sound when you turn your head?  These are warning signs of chronic neck pain.

Many people try to cover up the problem by taking drugs, such as aspirin or pain pills.  Others seek relief from the symptoms of neck pain through the use of things like muscle relaxers or hot packs.  These are temporary fixes at best, because they do not address the root cause of chronic neck pain.

At Lindstrom Chiropractic, our approach to neck pain is to locate its underlying cause, which usually can be traced back to the structure and function of the spine, and its affect on your nervous system.  This approach allows us to create a plan of specific chiropractic adjustments to improve the position and motion of your spinal vertebrae.

Once this is accomplished, neck pain usually diminishes or totally disappears - without the use of drugs and their potentially harmful side effects.

A study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that patients who received chiropractic care for neck pain reported significant improvement in their neck function and a reduction in their neck pain, while those taking pain-killers did not.

If you suffer from chronic neck pain, let Dr. Tom map out a plan to address your specific symptoms.
