Dr. Kathleen A. Martens takes great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Orland Park office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before.
We provide acupuncture to balance the flow and distribution of Chi (energy) and balance its circulation by stimulating points via needles (that are fine and flexible, no bigger than a human hair or piece of thread). Chi is meant to flow freely throughout the meridian network carrying its balanced vital force to all the body's parts, organs, and systems, thereby encouraging them to function with each other in a natural, harmonious way that leads to sound health. But any sustained blockage or other disruption of a balanced flow or distribution of Chi may bring on pain, a weakened immune system, and ill health.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Dr. Kathleen A. Martens can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
