Vital Wellness Center’s Dr. David Foss is the leading chiropractor in Maple Park IL. We take great pride in offering our patients the most effective methods in chiropractic care to help regain their health and improve overall well being.
Best Alternative to Pain-Relieving Medications
When it comes to dealing with pain we often get a prescription from our primary care physician to help manage it. While taking a prescription may provide some temporary relief it does not treat the root of the problem. Vital Wellness Center Maple Park Il can provide a long term solution for pain without having to depend on medications and side effects that come from using them.
Expert Chiropractic Care
When you visit Vital Wellness Center you can expect a completely holistic, drug-free and hands-on approach to treat the neuro-musculoskeletal issues on the neck and spine. You can expect our expert chiropractor to provide you with a detailed diagnosis, offer a unique treatment plan, teach and guide you on preventative measures to correct spinal disorders and other problems that affect your spinal health. As an advocate of alternative care, we concentrate on enhancing your health and wellbeing without having to use drugs or resort to surgery. A lot of our treatment regimens also include exercise and lifestyle counseling to help you live a healthier life.
Good spinal health helps athletes move more freely and can result in an increased ability to train more effectively. For people that like to jog or run, it can help achieve faster mile times while also gaining the ability to compete at higher levels than usual.
If you suffer from spinal misalignment, every activity you do might be affected, including your ability to breathe normally. If your spine is healthy, the pain is removed and you are able to resume your favorite activities.
Chiropractic care is not just about adjusting your spine, there are also other treatment regimens that target various pressure points. Don’t be surprised if you begin to experience an overall sense of relaxation after your session. As your spine is realigned it allows your muscles and nervous system to relax.

How Will You Feel After Your First Treatment?
Wondering how you’ll feel after your first few adjustments? Read on:
Some people report feeling great!
Research indicates that some patients receiving chiropractic adjustments may experience a mild side effect of some kind (Cagnie, Vinck, Beernaert & Cambier, 2004; Chaibi, Benth, Tuchin & Russell, 2017). Many patients feel the effects of an adjustment right away, while it may take a bit longer for others. Since everyone is unique, it’s impossible to make exact predictions about how your body will react to the first adjustments from Dr. Foss, so here are some common experiences reported by patients to help you prepare for the possibilities!
Some feel a little bit sore…
Other people report minor discomfort after their first adjustments, particularly in the areas of greatest subluxation. A 2017 study by Chaibi, Benth, Tuchin and Russell indicates that 11.3% of patients receiving chiropractic adjustments during the study experienced a mild, localized tenderness afterward. Muscle soreness is also a common experience and was noted by a study in which 13% of participants reported sore muscles after an adjustment (Meier, Evans, Hartvigsen, Shulz & Bronfort, 2015). The muscles around your spine have been pushing and pulling in the same directions for many years, which has maintained the misalignment of your vertebrae. Now those muscles are being asked to push and pull in the directions that maintain correct alignment, so it’s only natural to expect them to be a bit sore!
Regardless of the type of discomfort, it tends to be mild and usually occurs within 4 hours after an adjustment and resolves within 24 hours (Cagnie, 2004).
(Side note: the “muscle memory” that maintains incorrect vertebral alignment is why multiple adjustments are needed to correct the spine – the muscles need to be retrained!)
Don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Foss about any concerns!
Some people report not feeling much different.
Lastly, some people report not feeling any different after their first adjustments. Even though you may not notice any effects, rest assured that important changes are taking place! Chiropractic adjustments won’t always make you feel better instantly, but they’ll make you heal better instantly!
