Active Release Techniques Biomechanics 

Our Providers have extensive training and certification in how to evaluate and diagnose a problem that is related to repetitive motion or activity. This involves an in-depth analysis of specific motions related to a specific activity, and understanding the cause of faulty mechanics related to these actions. The dysfunctions can then be addressed and treated properly for faster recovery. This can be advantageous especially with sports such as running, golf, and cross fit, and can shorten the treatment time as well as increase athletic performance.

Who Benefits From Biomechanics Evaluation?

 

What To Expect

Your first visit begins with a consult and examination with your doctor, who will discuss your problem to determine its relationship to your activity. Once this has been established, he or she will have you perform the movement over and over again while they carefully observe any asymmetries or incorrect patterns in the movement. Observations usually begin by examining the core muscles first then working out to the extremities. All faulty movement patterns are noted and the associated muscle groups examined for treatment with myofascial stretching and physical therapy exercises to correct the problem. The movements are once again performed and examined for correction of the faulty pattern. 

Treatments can take anywhere from 6-8 sessions and patients typically see significant improvement within the first 3 visits.

This is a great place.  Dr. Pommerehn was so good. I had lots of problems with my shoulder, which we tried therapy on to fix.  He explained everything in detail, and finally when my shoulder did not get completely better, he sent me for an MRI, which showed a tear.  He said I would might need surgery. No one could believe that a Chiropractor was helping me so much – I really appreciated the work that he did with me, and the honesty with which he treated me. I will definitely use this place again.

Great service and great people.  I’ve had chronic back problems over the last 20 years and have been to a number of loop area places and Chicago Whole Health is definitely the standout.  On my first visit it was clear that their interests truly lie in resolving the issue rather than ensuring a larger number of visits (they showed me how to effectively self treat to the extent possible).  While I went there only for lower back issues, they offer a pretty expansive line of services.  I highly recommend this place to anyone.

I have had some medical issues that I have not been able to resolve for the past few years. Having tried Western medicine and holistic methods, I decided to try out acupuncture. I was not sure where to find a good acupuncturist (other than Chinatown). I really wanted someone I could communicate my problems to and who could communicate with me so that I could understand everything. Dr. Zhao was the answer to my problems. She speaks English and some Mandarin! I had told Dr. Zhao that it was my first time to acupuncture and told her my problems.  She explained everything thoroughly to me a…

The doctors here are wonderful. Dr Pommerehn helped me find ways to take care of my back after it had left me immobilized and unable to go to work.

I had broken my tailbone a few years ago and recently was having more pain around it. I thought surgery may be my only option, but decided to try chiropractic care for the injury and I’m so glad I found this place! Dr. Pommerehn is amazing! He was very upfront and honest during our initial exam and thoroughly explained every part of the treatment plan. Given the extent of my I injury we weren’t sure treatment would help, but his patience and treatment paid off! After a few weeks of intense treatment (three times a week) I have been able to manage the pain of this injury. I no longer have r…

Let me first start by saying that I was totally against any type of chiropractic care until I hurt my back earlier this year.  After some nudging from a coworker, I decided it was time to get help.  I searched for a Chiropractor in my area and the Chicago Whole Health Center came up.  I called immediately and spoke with Dr. Graham Pommerehn aka “Dr. Feel Good”!  I was truly surprised and overjoyed that I felt so much better after my first visit!  “Dr. Feel Good” worked his magic on me and did it with the best bedside manner I have ever experienced.  He is patient, gentle, funny and kind. I…
