I love this guy: Dr. Michael Silbert.
Why? Because his adjustments make me feel so much better. I’ve had a lot of adjustments and I really like this “Goldilocks” style: He does not use too much force nor too little. And he knows A LOT about chiropractic care, injury rehab, you name it.
Today I stopped by Dr. Silbert’s office, the Chicago Wellness Center. in the Board of Trade (141 W. Jackson Blvd, Level A aka Basement) office for a quick adjustment and had a special treat. He had me lay down on a mechanical traction table, locked my feet in and and then tractioned (stretched) my lower body. He joked about strapping me down to a medieval rack (remember how they used to stretch people back in the gold ole Spanish Inquisition days). Then he pulled my legs right to left in a careful manner and I felt myself grow an inch taller! (Maybe I didn’t actually grow but I felt like I did!) For me, I find that Dr. Silbert IS a low back pain savior. And a neck pain savoir too!
If you have any questions about your spine, your muscles, or general anatomy, his website has a lot of really well done multimedia slides that explain how your body works in detail. Check out his info on topics such as Relief From Neck Pain and Understanding Disc Problems here.
Note: Neither Working Well Massage nor I, Sue Shekut, has an affiliation with Dr. Silbert (Other than my being a patient). We do not get any advertising revenue from Dr. Silbert for this post. He treats me like any other patient–with great care!
