MOVE FORWARD. MOVE BETTER.

Physical Therapy, Acupuncture, Chiropractic and Massage Therapy in River Forest and Oak Park, Illinois.

 

ABOUT US

 

  Our mission since opening in 2010  has been to most provide the most current ways to reduce pain, restore movement and properly educate our patients on the most successful ways to prevent injury. We accomplish this by using the most current evidence-based therapies, including chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy and massage therapy.

 

 

Our Model to a Successful Treatment Plan 

 

Patient-Centered Care  

Our individually tailored treatments are centered around you.  Just as no two people are exactly alike, at River Forest Health and Wellness no two treatment plans are identical, whether they are based on chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy, massage therapy or a combination of these.

 

Education

Patient education is the foundation of care at River Forest Health and Wellness. We feel it is essential for each patient to understand why the problem exists, why the specific treatment approach is recommended, and what needs to be done to reduce the risk of reoccurrence.  

 

"Anybody can know. The point is to understand."  ~ Albert Einstein 

 

Prevention 

Awareness, gained from the patient-centered care approach and patient education, provides our patients with the tools to prevent undesired injuries and other health concerns. Prevention involves a multifaceted approach employing ergonomic correction at work and home, exercises, stress reduction, diet/nutrition and lifestyle modifications.

I went for my first visit the other day & was greeted warmly. Very easy process for a patient. Dr. Jennifer spent a great deal of time explaining various things to me. She sure knows her stuff & has a great personality. Was impressed by everything I saw & experienced. Looking forward my next visits. Highly recommend them!
My first massage at the River Forest Health & Wellness center was terrific. Lily is the consummate professional. The facility is clean, comfortable and calming. The massage table was heated, which I'd never experienced before. Excellent in all regards!
I have been to A LOT of chiropractors, but have always felt they did the same things and never fully addressed the issues at hand. Dr. Nugent has a very thorough approach given his robust training, and I have always felt he adapted his treatment to the issue, rather than only doing the same 1-2 things to solve every problem. Can't recommend enough!

Just started getting treatment a month ago and have been feeling better after every session. Dr. Miller has developed a plan for the many aches and pains I brought. She listens attentively to what I’m saying and addresses this weeks issues. Always observant as she is providing treatment and catches my limitations and adjust accordingly.

I have enjoyed working with Dr. Bunker. I am very tall and play a lot of sports, putting strain on my already overly tight muscles which just seem to keep getting worse over time. The combination of rehab, adjustments, and massage has helped me be mindful of my body mechanics and range of motion in my tight hamstrings than I thought possible.
