Do I need a prescription for therapy?
Physical Therapy services in the state of Illinois require a prescription from a doctor. Your doctor may fax your prescription to us directly at: 847-247-9533 or you may bring your prescription with you to your first appointment.
A prescription is not required for Nutrition services, unless specifically required by your insurance plan. Contact your insurance provider for coverage, script and claims requirements.
What kind of treatment do you provide?
You will experience hands-on, individualized, one-on-one treatment in an ethical, caring and nurturing environment. You won’t be left alone to do exercises you could do at home. Our practitioners are caring individuals with leading-edge expertise and they take a whole-body, holistic approach to healing.
The Initial Evaluation provides a collaborative opportunity for the patient to describe areas of pain, weakness, dysfunction, and desired progress goals, combined with a comprehensive assessment by our practitioner, to identify structural imbalances. Our practice provides input for the patient to change their structure and function as indicated, and we support them in addressing the spiritual, emotional and nutritional aspects of their health.
What do I need to bring to my first treatment session?
Please arrive 10 minutes early to your first session to allow yourself time complete intake forms. Be prepared to provide your relevant medical history and current medications. Also, your doctor’s contact information is helpful.
To save time, you may download our Patient Registration Form and complete them ahead of time, and bring them with you to your first treatment session.

Please let us know in advance if you have received previous therapy treatment and/or in-home health services in this calendar year - this includes physical therapy, occupational therapy, chiropractic, and speech therapy.
What is the timeframe needed for my treatment?
Typical treatment timeframes span 30, 45, or 60 minutes, per your individual needs. Your first session will involve a detailed Initial Evaluation (see prior paragraph) and will take 1 hour. During your initial evaluation your therapist will recommend an appropriate treatment schedule for you, based on the evaluation, your doctor’s prescription, and your individual needs and schedule.
What shall I wear for my treatment?
We suggest you wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing that allows appropriate movement for your treatment. For example, fitness attire and/or loose-fitting street clothes are perfectly acceptable. In some instances your treatment may require a gown for you to wear, which we will provide.
