Chiropractic Care in Belvidere IL

Chiropractic Belvidere IL Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care in Belvidere IL provides an additional option for wellness maintenance. A chiropractor treats the whole body and uncovers the roots of a patient’s condition, rather than just relieving the symptoms. Dr. Gabe Javurek of Javurek Chiropractic of Belvidere helps Belvidere IL and Boone County residents make the most of their health potential.

Chiropractic Adjustments in Belvidere IL

Chiropractic adjustments are a common treatment. Dr. Javurek is proficient in the Diversified technique of adjustment, which uses a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust to move the vertebrae. He also uses the Activator method, which uses a handheld spring-loaded device to gently adjust the vertebrae.

Non-surgical spinal decompression

Dr. Javurek utilizes Cox’s Flexion Distraction to help with herniated discs. This is a specially designed table and technique that allows the vertebrae to separate and create a space to return the disc to its correct location. The treatment is designed to suit the patient and their tolerance. It can be used on the cervical or lumbar region of the back.

Massage therapy

Massage therapy offers a complementary treatment to chiropractic adjustment. The type of massage will be determined by the needs of the patient, but may be designed to trigger the relaxation response, or vigorous enough to stretch out tightened tissue.

Electric muscle stimulation

When muscles are tense and painful, the use of low levels of electric current can be helpful. The current causes the muscles to contract and that tires them out. When the muscles get tired, they relax and that helps with muscle spasms and pain.

Custom Orthotics

Custom orthotics can help with the alignment of the feet and ankles. When the feet are unbalanced, they throw off the legs and the back. This can lead to back, neck, hip, and shoulder pain. Orthotics can not only make the feet more comfortable with arch support, but they can help redistribute body weight. They are specifically designed for your feet and any walking issues you may have.

Therapeutic exercise

Your chiropractor will continue your recovery with therapeutic exercises specifically designed to help with your particular condition. Stretches are often included in chiropractic care to help with mobility and range of motion.


Cryotherapy is the use of cold to help with pain and swelling. It constricts the blood vessels and helps to reduce inflammation.  It is effective on fresh injuries but can also help with muscle spasms and pain afterward as well.
