Services & Techniques

Services from Our Chicago Chiropractor, Dr. Michael Pontarelli and Team.

We take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients.

As a chiropractor in Chicago, Dr. Michael Pontarelli has had the honor of working with thousands of people from all walks of life. He and his team at Windy City Wellness provide a range of services that can help you or your loved ones optimize health at any age.

Chiropractic Care

We provide spinal correction utilizing gentle 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. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Pontarelli has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment, and is always willing to take a closer look at your hormonal profile and organ systems to ensure they’re functioning optimally.

Chiropractic Neurology

Dr. Pontarelli takes traditional chiropractic spinal adjustments to the next level by combining them with other non-invasive techniques that help stimulate and optimize the central nervous system. To this end, chiropractic neurology includes adjustments, cognitive exercises, and modalities like light, heat, water, and electrical stimulation, and can be used to manage a range of neurological conditions including foot drop, radiculopathy, and even memory, attention, and learning disorders.

Sports Medicine

Our chiropractic sports medicine services focus on evaluating our athletes’ movements and lifestyles to help treat and prevent sports injury and naturally enhance physical performance.

We treat sport injuries in children, teens, and adults that play sports in schools, leagues, and professionally. Our Sports Medicine service includes chiropractic treatment, chiropractic neurology, exercise, massage, acupuncture, and nutritional counseling services. We will offer a customized program for each patient’s need.
Often we combine heat therapy, electrical stimulation, cold therapy with different forms of chiropractic treatment depending on the type of sports therapy needed.

Corrective Exercises

Movement is medicine! Our Chicago chiropractor prescribes specific exercises, stretches, and body mechanics training to help people recover from sports injury, work injury, or even chronic pain. The other techniques he provides in addition to exercise counseling help make physical activity easier, safer, and more comfortable.

We teach our patients exercises that are specific for their condition. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. 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.

Massage Therapy

More than a luxury, massage therapy is a well-documented technique that can accelerate healing by increasing blood flow and lymphatic drainage, breaking up fascia tension and scar tissue, alleviating painful trigger points and muscle spasms, improving range of motion, and more.

Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient’s condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.

Acupuncture

Traditionally, this ancient Eastern medicine technique used the insertion of thin sterile needles along specific points in the body to restore the natural energy flow of the body. We also know that acupuncture triggers biological Healing events, which can be used for a broad range of conditions, including migraines, fibromyalgia, labor pain, low back pain, and other types of acute or chronic pain conditions.

Nutritional Counseling

From gluten-free to weight loss and high performance diets, Dr. Pontarelli can advise you on a variety of dietary programs that best suit your goals and needs. He also has techniques to help you identify underlying food sensitivities and nutritional deficiencies.

We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients’ 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? Michael Pontarelli can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.

Lifestyle Advice

We often find it helpful to “coach” our patients on certain activities they should forego 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 patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.

Spinal & Postural Screenings

Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.

Sleep Treatment

Sleep is such an important part of health that our Chicago chiropractor offers education and interventions specifically geared toward helping you get a better night’s rest. Learn about sleep hygiene and more.
