Chris Scott Wellness (CSW) provides a variety of services including chiropractic, medical massage, myofascial release and physical therapy. “The goal of CSW is to offer better innovative solutions to get people out of pain fast by addressing the root of their problem, rather than the symptoms, using the latest technology and research,” says founder and owner Chris Scott.
The doctors on staff include a board certified anesthesiologist and a chiropractic physician who work with patients to formulate a comprehensive plan of care. Every member of our wellness team is distinguished in his or her own field. Their extensive education and experience provide distinct advantages for our patients because they can quickly discover a better way to a better you. Chris Scott, founder and owner, is the sports medicine therapist of the Olympic Kickboxing Team USA. “A Better Way to a Better You” is our slogan, says Scott. What does that mean? It means that we don’t do average patient care within the realm of chiropractic, medical massage, myofascial release and physical therapy. In our state-of-the-art treatment center, located at 1752 Windsor Road, in Loves Park, Ill., we work with people of all ages and abilities, from 3-month-old babies and pregnant women to 104-year-old adults. Our focus is to help as many people as we can by making a difference in their lives.
At the end of the day, it all comes down to one thing: Improving the quality of life for our patients so they can function at their most optimum level. Dr. Brittany McMullen provides high-quality chiropractic care with immediate relief in treating a wide range of pain conditions, such as; disc problems, sciatica, neck and back pain, pinched nerves, headaches, sports injuries, and shoulder, hip, knee and joint pain. A chiropractic adjustment reduces subluxation to increase range of motion, improve function and reduce nerve irritability. By combining chiropractic with medical massage, the adjustment can last longer.
We believe the true purpose of medical massage is to alleviate muscle pain through individualized pain management plans administered by Advanced Medical Massage Therapists. We can help with nerve impingements, restricted range of motion, postsurgery rehab, frozen shoulders, sciatica and much more. By receiving a medical massage prior to a chiropractic adjustment, the muscles are loose and the adjustment will last longer. The medical massage will keep the muscles relaxed longer, allowing the joints to stay in place and not be pulled by the muscles. Remember, muscles pull on bones, and that’s what creates movement. We all know you have to move in order to improve! Some unique aspects of this practice include the revolutionary technology of the PowerPlate Pro 7 HC, which is a certified medical device that you stand on. We’re the only practice in the state-line area providing this service, which impacts a broad range of disciplines, from physical therapy to workout programs.
It is quite extensive in treating Parkinson’s disease, fibromyalgia, peripheral neuropathy, rheumatoid arthritis and spinal cord injuries, and in helping people to walk better. “This device never ceases to amaze me,” says Scott. “I’ve witnessed people in wheelchairs who just put their feet on the PowerPlate platform for 5 minutes and afterwards they’re able to get up out of their wheelchair and walk with a walker. It’s like a healing miracle from God because, before then, it was impossible for them to get out of their wheelchair, let alone walk.” Chris Scott Wellness accepts insurance, care credit and cash for services rendered. We do not want finances to stop a patient from receiving the care they need and deserve. Therefore, flexible payment plans can be made in advance to fit anyone’s budget.
