At Korwitts Chiropractic Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Downers Grove office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Victor Korwitts has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each patient is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Our doctors can provide a structured nutritional and/or Core Detox program based on your individual needs.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
Acupuncture provides yet another tool for encouraging the body toward ideal balance. For many people, acupuncture treatments can result in a reduction of chronic pain and the alleviation of nagging symptoms. This is because the ancient practice of acupuncture stimulates energy flow through the important meridians of the body. To learn more about acupuncture, read this informative article. Dr. Korwitts is certified in acupuncture and can provide this valuable therapy either as an independent treatment or as a supplement to chiropractic manipulation
It's never too early to become a chiropractic patient. Birth, for some babies, is a physically traumatic process resulting in a spinal subluxation even before the first breath is taken. And young children, amidst a series of falls and tumbles, can experience nerve imbalance that uncorrected will lead to chronic problems throughout life. No child (or parent) should struggle with such things as colic, hyperactivity, allergies or chronic ear infections. At Korwitts Chiropractic Center, your children will receive health benefits that will last a life-time.
Full x-ray capabilities are available on-site at the Korwitts Chiropractic Center. This means that our doctors have the advantage of using x-ray pictures to view the condition of internal bone structure in conjunction with a physical exam. The application of x-ray as a diagnostic tool provides beneficial information about physical factors that are not visible to the eye or through an external exam. During a report of findings, new patients can expect to view their own unique full spine x-ray, seeing first hand the condition of discs, vertebrae and nerve structure. When needed, x-rays of the extremities can provide valuable information relating to a sprain, injury, arthritic deterioration or bone abnormalities.
At Downers Grove Laser Therapy Center we safely and effectively get rid of pain fast!

Our center uses the M6 MLS Class IV Laser Therapy Unit pictured here. This machine provides the benefit of both hot and cold laser technology to deliver maximum healing potential and pain relief. MLS Laser Therapy uses specific light wavelengths which have a powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-edema effect on cell tissue. Photons of energy painlessly penetrate cells, accelerating the body's natural healing process. As a result, tendons, muscles and ligaments repair themselves quickly. This is why painful conditions that are accompanied by swelling and inflammation respond extremely well to this technology. Learn more at downersgrovelasertherapy.com.
