Chicago Health

The primary focus of our work at Ravenswood Health Center, as Chicago health care experts, is to quickly alleviate your pain and get you feeling better. After we reach that benchmark, our health professional, Dr. Jason Fennema, DC, works toward his goal to promote wellness in Chicago in general. In doing so, we will ideally expand your health and wellness education.

Helping the people of our community learn to live well and stay in great health in Chicago is our responsibility as your Chicago health care professionals. We hope that during the time after receiving treatment and education on spinal health, your outlook on wellness, as well as your resistance to physical ailments, will continue to develop and improve. They say knowledge is power. We are confident that with our comprehensive, individualized  chiropractic care and education, you will feel empowered by the knowledge of your  health concerns and the issues you personally have or are likely to face.

While our primary goal is to promote wellness in Chicago and to relieve your pain naturally without the use of drugs or surgery, we at Ravenswood Health Center, recognize the role of standard medical practitioners, as well. We work toward the uncommon balance of therapy and therapist in reaching our aim: to ensure the sustained health of our patients, as well as the general wellness in the Chicago community.

But what do we mean when we say wellness? How do we define wellness in Chicago? What, in this era of so many seemingly contradictory methods for treatment constitutes the well? The proven benefits and drawbacks of wellness care versus standard medical practice are greatly debated on by chiropractic care professionals. Basically, the two modalities differ in that standard medical procedure relies on medicine and surgery – tools external to the body – while wellness care guides the body to do what it does naturally – to heal itself. Though all medical procedures are valid in their own contexts and systems, the Chicago health experts at Ravenswood Health Center understand that when the body works as it should and will heal itself accordingly.

It can be said that our goal as your Chicago health care experts is a lofty one, but no matter what it takes, we are committed to promoting wellness in Chicago to the very best of our abilities.
