MOVE FORWARD. BE BETTER THAN BEFORE.
Our Mission is to provide patient-centered care to reduce pain, restore function and properly educate our patients on the most successful ways to prevent injury and achieve their health-related goals. We accomplish this by using the most current evidence-based therapies, including chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy and massage.
Our Model to a Successful Treatment Plan
Our individually tailored treatments are centered around you, setting each patient up for success. 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.
Patient education is the foundation of care at River Forest Health and Wellness. We feel it is essential for each patient to understand why his or her condition 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
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.
What To Expect
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!
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!
