Chiropractor, Acupuncture, Massage Homewood, IL

Back and neck pain can be troublesome and debilitating. If you’ve been experiencing it, you understand how it affects your quality of life. At the same time, you might be seeking prevention of root causes instead of just a treatment of symptoms. You might also want your pain relief to be natural rather than surgical or medicinal.

Based in Homewood, IL and led by chiropractor Dr. Josh Zumstein, The Back Safety & Wellness Center provides research- and evidence-based solutions to back and neck discomfort for Homewood residents. Our full-body treatments combine chiropractic techniques with acupuncture and massage therapy to help your body work for you, not against you.

A renowned and accredited chiropractor, Dr. Zumstein holds a master’s degree in sports rehabilitation and certifications in acupuncture, applied kinesiology, and the Webster and McKenzie techniques.

He is also the author of the book Secrets to Preventing Back and Neck Pain: 60 Ways to Protect Your Spine, which has been featured on WGN, Fox and affiliates of NBC, as well as on NPR and in the Chicago Sun-Times.

His work has been endorsed by health professionals including a professor of orthopedics and sports medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago; the former president of the Logan College of Chiropractic; and a former professional baseball strength and conditioning coach who also founded ML Strength.

Trained and Licensed Chiropractor for Homewood, IL

A chiropractor is a non-surgical spine specialist who can also treat any part of your body where two bones meet to form a joint. Chiropractors apply non-invasive, drug-free, hands-on treatments that realign spinal vertebrae or any other misaligned bones.

These misaligned bones – also known as subluxations – can disrupt your body’s function, as well as your health and well-being. Subluxations can change the body’s structure, cause neurological imbalances and alter physiological reactions. Negative effects mainly affect the spine but can occur elsewhere in the body.

At The Back Safety & Wellness Center, we aim to improve your body’s biomechanics, musculoskeletal system, posture, spine structure and overall motion. In doing so, we share proven secrets for pain relief known only to certain health professionals.

Beyond back and neck pain, common conditions that benefit from chiropractic treatment are numbness or tingling, sciatic pain, carpal tunnel, herniated or bulging discs, shoulder pain, knee pain, and tennis and golfer’s elbow.

Precise Acupuncture Therapy for Homewood, IL

Acupuncture involves the use of tiny pins to stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities. Similar in gauge and width to a human hair, these pins are minimally placed, typically a few millimeters, into specific areas of your skin. The targeted areas will always be unique to your condition.

Inserting acupuncture needles increases blood flow, which can reduce inflammation and facilitate healing. It also helps decrease pain by releasing serotonin in the brain.

Through his years of practice, Dr. Zumstein has witnessed acupuncture’s positive effects on multiple ailments. He became a great advocate of the technique when he experienced its healing powers after just a few sessions of treatment for flu-like symptoms.

Acupuncture can provide relief from conditions such as headaches, sinus pressure, disc herniations, musculoskeletal aches and pains, stress/anxiety and high blood pressure. It can also help with stopping addictions such as smoking.

Whatever your particular discomfort might be, our gentle, restorative technique can offer relief. For more information about our acupuncture for Homewood, contact us at 708-365-6353 or today.

Massage Therapy for Homewood, IL

Massage therapy is the manual treatment of the body’s soft tissues to help normalize them. Techniques include applying fixed or movable pressure to the body, as well as holding the body or causing it to move.

Massaging contributes to better blood flow and circulation, less muscular tension or flaccidity, and enhanced tissue healing.

People often seek massage therapy for muscle tightness or spasms; faster healing from muscle-tissue injuries; greater flexibility and range of motion; relief from stress and anxiety; assistance with deeper, easier breathing; and a stronger connection between the mind and body.

The Back Safety & Wellness Center provides professional massage therapy for the Chicago south suburbs, including Homewood. Our licensed and insured therapists are thoroughly trained in the science of therapeutic massages and other soft-tissue treatment techniques.

Located in Homewood, we’d be glad to discuss the benefits of massage therapy with you. Contact us at 708-365-6353 or today!
