Services & Techniques

At Active Life Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Palatine office.


Chiropractic Adjustments

After a thorough examination, patients will be advised on a plan to reach their optimal health. Adjustments aid in improving spinal joint function and allow the nervous system to work properly. There are many forms of adjustments and the goal is to find the treatment that works best for you and your condition.

Physical Therapy

This part of treatment enhances core stability and improves muscle imbalances to give patients the opportunity to learn to manage their own health. Rehabilitation exercises are taught to each patient to correct any or all ailments and will give the patient the opportunity to work with the doctor for one-on-one training. Therapy will be customized to each patient and his/her condition. These exercises can include, but are not limited to, stretching, strength conditioning, gait analysis, postural training and balance work. The goal is to create a solid foundation of proper biomechanics for each patient so that he/she can return to his/her regular activities of daily living and workout routine without risk of re-injury.

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? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Elizabeth E. Engel can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.

Nutrition Counseling

The substances that we put into our body can affect us in physical ways. We need adequate nutrients to allow our body to heal and to function properly on a daily basis. Depending on a patient’s condition, outside laboratory testing may be deemed necessary. These tests and a detailed history allow the doctor to fully understand your whole health picture and help to correct the source of the problem and not just the symptoms.

Natural Hormone Balancing

Find out whether your current symptoms are stemming from an underlying hormone imbalance. A customized nutritional supplementation program is created for each patient and helps to correct hormone dysfunction.
