Common Questions about Chiropractic care in Schaumburg

Q: What is a Chiropractic adjustment? 

Chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is a manual procedure that utilizes the highly refined skills developed during the doctor of chiropractic’s intensive years of chiropractic education. The chiropractic physician typically uses his or her hands--or an instrument--to manipulate the joints of the body, particularly the spine, in order to restore or enhance joint function. This often helps resolve joint inflammation and reduces the patient's pain. Chiropractic manipulation is a highly controlled procedure that rarely causes discomfort. The chiropractor adapts the procedure to meet the specific needs of each patient. Patients often note positive changes in their symptoms immediately following treatment. 

In our office we utilize an instrument called the activator to manipulate the joints in the body. We also utilize a variety of gentle techniques using our hands to help restore motion in the spine and extremities. 


Q: Why is there a popping sound when a joint is adjusted during a Chiropractic adjustment?

Adjustment (or manipulation) of a joint may result in the release of a gas bubble between the joints, which makes a popping sound. The same thing occurs when you “crack” your knuckles. The noise is caused by the change of pressure within the joint, which results in gas bubbles being released. There is usually minimal, if any, discomfort involved.

Q: Can I still go to the Chiropractor if I am receiving Physical Therapy? 

Many of our patients receive home exercises, physical therapy exercises while in the office, and various forms of physical therapy in our office while simultaneously under Chiropractic care. In short, Chiropractic care and Physical Therapy complement each other and patients typically may respond better when used in combination.

Here are a few Testimonials about our Schaumburg Chiropractor services:

Headache Relief Chiropractor for headaches and Migraines


  • I had a very positive experience working with Dr. Martinez at Tri Modern Health. I started getting headaches that I think were stress induced during my third year of teaching. My headaches were debilitating and I could feel my level of teaching was being threatened. I was sad and upset about this. During my first visit to Dr. Martinez, I was so impressed by his attentive listening. He focused in on what I was saying, made eye contact with me, gathered all the necessary information and truly listened, an experience I have not had with other doctors. Dr. Martinez adjusted and massaged the necessary areas to give me relief. Together, we even discussed other stress reducing activities. I was able to perform my job with renewed energy and focus, which I know would not have been achieved without help from Dr. Martinez. I would encourage anyone with headaches to try chiropractic techniques for relief. My only regret is waiting as long as I did to make the call for help.   A.R. 

terry and her puppy hip pain relief with chiropractic and acupuncture

  • I can not say enough good things about Tri Modern Health. In August 2015 I injured my hip while hiking. I spent six weeks icing, resting and taking ibuprofen with no results. I made an appointment with Martinez. After a detailed history and testing Dr Martinez came up with a treatment plan specific to my injury, including manipulation, ultrasound, massage, acupuncture and physical therapy. After following through with his treatment plan I was able to resume my normal routine. Best of all I was able to participate in all the activities I had scheduled for my Alaskan hiking adventure. Now I am able to be the active person I want to be PAIN FREE!  Without Dr Martinez's expertise I am unsure if I would have been able to continue working and enjoying life to the fullest. I would highly encourage anyone who is unsure about using chiropractic services to contact Dr Martinez to arrange a consultation  T.R. 


  • I highly recommend Dr. Martinez to anyone looking for a total chiropractic solution. He takes the time to explain the process and he’s incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. Not only does he provide adjustments but he also provides therapy solutions to assist in the recovery process. Great facility, plus it seems like everyone who goes there has a positive experience with favorable results." Eric L

  • "I was nervous about finding a new chiropractor after having had to leave my previous chiropractor due to a move from the city to the suburbs but have been more than satisfied with Dr. Martinez as he has exceeded my expectations of a health care professional on numerous ways. Dr. Martinez has not only helped mobilize and stretch my back but has also designed routines of strengthening exercises (both core and upper body) and stretches to help me fully recover from a chronic back episodes to get me back on the ice playing hockey. Additionally, Dr, Martinez has helped me come up with a nutritional plan to help my body recover from intense workouts and has also helped connect me with other health care professionals in the suburbs to help me set up a new network. I highly recommend Dr. Martinez and have been very impressed by his knowledge of holistic medicine." Chris H.

  • I went to the prior chiropractor at this location for over 20 years and was so sad when he retired and feared I wouldn't find someone not only as good as he was but as kind and attentive. I am pleasantly surprised to find Dr. Martinez fits that bill and if I wasn't 65 yrs old, I would spend the next 20 some years with his practice." Lea G.
