Chicago Chiropractor talks Physical Activity

Chicago Chiropractor talks Physical Activity

The human body design is for movement. It is made to move way more than we are moving it these days. Most people are struggling to get 10,000 steps a day. 100 years ago 10,000 steps a day was probably the minimum most people walked.

Let’s Talk Muscles

Let’s Talk Muscles

As people age there are certain muscles that tend to lose strength and others that tend to get tight. We see this consistently in people that do not exercise. Being that we see this pattern consistently, it makes sense that we should be proactive in addressing this. If we can work on strengthening the muscles that get weak and keep the muscles that get tight flexible, we can then in turn slow down aging. Continue reading

Getting Old

Getting Old

Something I hear very often in my office from patients is the statement, “I’m getting old.” When people say this it is in relation to the fact that are injured or having pain and it either came out of nowhere or it started after a very simple movement or activity. When people tell me they are getting old, I call them out on it. “You may be getting older, but you are not getting old” is typically my response. Continue reading

Lincolnwood is Home

Lincolnwood is Home

It has been 8 weeks since we moved to our new location at 6443 N Cicero Ave in Lincolnwood. Lincolnwood is home! It has been such a great experience here in the new office. The feedback from patients has been great and everyone is feeling right at home.

Ia gain wanted to thank everyone for their patience during this transition. We will be having another transition here in the office in 2 weeks. Don’t worry, we are not moving again!! Our office software which handles all of our scheduling, insurance billing and payment processing is changing. We do not anticipate any issues during this transitions, but if any do arise please be patient with us. The most important thing you can do that would help us is to ensure all of your information is up to date with Elisha. Make sure we have the correct insurance information, your address, email address and cell phone number.

Why the Change?

We are striving to make our office more papeless and environmental friendly. You will notice that we will no longer have sign in sheets, you will now be checking-in on an ipad at the front desk each time you come in. We will now be able to communicate directly with you via text message. There are a lot of great changes with this new software and I am sure you will love it just as much as we do!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you and Be Well!

Lincolnwood Chiropractor

It is official! Our office is officially located in Lincolnwood now and I am a Lincolnwood Chiropractor! All that really means is that the great service you have been receiving 4 blocks south in Sauganash is now being offered in Lincolnwood.

Thank you for all of your patience during this time as we were packing up the old office and also as we have been settling into the new office. The first thing you will notice when you come into our new space is the layout and the energy is much different. We now have an open layout office which allows for shorter wait times for you! I have always prided myself on having an office that sees patients on time at their scheduled time.

Location

We are still on Cicero Ave, 4 blocks North of our old location. Our new address is 6443 N Cicero Ave which is just north of Devon.

We have been open a full week now and have seen a lot of our patients for adjustments in this time! If you haven’t been in to the new space yet, come on in and take a look. I’d love to show you around!

Yours in Health,

 

Dr. Steven Bourdage DC

I am excited to announce that we are moving ! We are moving 4 blocks north. From 6015 N Cicero Ave to 6443 N Cicero Ave. We are on the same side of the street as we currently are. The biggest difference is we will now have PARKING!

We have been at our current space in Sauganash since 2008. We will now be located in Lincolnwood, IL. I look forward to still serving Sauganash, Lincolnwood, Evanston, Skokie and the surrounding neighborhoods in Chicago.

As our buildout progresses and we have an exact date of when we will begin seeing patients in the new office I will keep you posted. Please watch us on Social media, in-office announcements, and our email newsletter for future updates!
