Integrated Chiropractic Care
The practice of Chiropractic has grown substantially with respect to supporting research and expanding roles. Cross-Up Chiropractors embrace the duty of a Physician to evaluate and manage the various systems of the body including the musculo-skeletal, neurological, cardiovascular, lymphatic, digestive, & hormonal.
Cross-Up specializes in Physical Medicine and Nutrition. The human body operates as a finely tuned machine that requires many parts to work in sync. We understand the importance of looking at how structures link together to create swift and stable movement.
Chiropractic must be more than a joint therapy; at Cross-Up, we thoroughly examine the body region causing your pain and restriction, then we create a recovery plan that gets you better as quickly and effectively as possible.
Patients from surrouding towns, including Mundelein, Libertyville, Vernon Hills, and more prefer our Chiropractors evaluation and treatments becuase they see significant results in record time.
What is an Adjustment?
Adjustment is another name for Chiropractic Manipulation Technique (CMT) by our chiropractor. This is the foundational tool of Chiropractic care that is designed around keeping your Central Nervous System (CNS) in good health.
The vertebral column harnesses, protects, and directs your central and peripheral nervous systems. This is considered the main control system of the body that controls incoming and outgoing signals to and from the brain.
Amazingly enough, the spine is a physical access point to functioning of our nervous system. The autonomic nervous system refers to our sympathetic (fight or flight) and parasympathetic (rest & digest) branches. Chiropractic adjustments can influence the activity of these systems allowing the body to regulate itself more efficiently.

Our Chiropractor Adjustment Methods
We use several techniques at Cross-up Chiro, depending on our patient’s needs. One or more techniques may be used to provide the best results for you.
Diversified & Gonstead Techniques
Very specific adjustment based on assessment of coupled motion of the joints and restoration of each plane of movement. These techniques evaluate subtle restrictions in movement of the joints and vertebra, and utilize high velocity low amplitude thrusts to align the body.
An instrument used to do the adjustment. Very gentle, well tolerated. Can be used on all ages, from infants to the elderly. This tool imparts multiple small impulses that cumulatively act to shift the joint into alignment. It also allows us to more comfortably manipulate rib joints and the TMJ.
Flexion & Distraction
Uses a special table to gently create space in joints. Effective for disc issues and stenosis and muscular therapy; very comfortable stretching of the lumbosacral spine and pelvis. This allows us to isolate spinal segments and facilitate motion in both the frontal and sagittal plane.
Cervical drop is great for TMJ manipulation. Speeder board drop used for extremities, most often for the ankle and wrist. This technique allows us to use inertia to move the joint into position instead of force. For that reason it is very effective for smaller, more vulnerable joints of the body.
“Our focus is on finding and fixing the underlying problem – not just masking it.”
Chiropractic – Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

When to stop chiropractic treatment?
Our chiropractor will prescribe a treatment plan for you to experience full relief and recovery. Many patients prefer to come back regularly for tune-ups, but others do great by adhering to the exercises they learned during care.
What is the pop sound during an adjustment?
Not to worry, this has nothing to do with bones popping or anything cracking. The sound you hear is actually from the formation of a nitrogen bubble within the joint. During a joint manipulation, the surfaces of the joint are brought towards one another with respect to mechanical function; this brings many negatively charge proteins (glycosaminoglycans – GAGs) closer and like the same end of two magnets they want to repel. The doctor applies a precise and gentle impulse to the joint, allowing it to separate. When the bubble is formed, this expands the joint to bring in water and nutrients that help produce smooth and full range of motion through the joint.
