Neck Pain Relief

The impact of neck pain on someone’s life can be serious.

For some people, neck pain only lasts a short time and then the symptoms go away. For others, it is a challenging, long-term issue that requires ongoing care.

If you have been experiencing neck pain an extended period of time, give Evolve Chiropractic of Downers a call. We can help improve your range of motion, lessen your pain and find out the core issues that started your neck pain problems in the first place.


There are 3 main types of headaches we see our patients suffer from when they first come to our Downers Grove, IL office:

Tension Headaches:

Tension headaches are very common and often result from prolonged tension in the shoulders, head and neck. While many people choose to treat these with medications, we prefer to show our patients how to resolve the muscular tension that originally caused the issue.


Migraines are not only painful but can also include other symptoms like nausea and dizziness. By making the proper spinal adjustments, incorporating massage and providing self-care techniques, we’ve seen many patients reduce or eliminate their migraines.

Cluster Headaches:

These can be extremely painful and are often characterized by one-sided pain. When misalignment of the spine is the cause of these headaches, chiropractic adjustments can be an effective form of care.

Luckily for our patients, we have seen many of them experience massive change within a short time of receiving care at our office. Many times, headaches are being caused by a misalignment of the spine and we able to help patients see results through gentle, spinal adjustments.


Sciatica is a condition where the sciatic nerve, which runs down the legs from the lower back, becomes irritated or compressed.


People suffering from Sciatica know the pain – which manifests in the lower back, hips, buttocks and legs – can be very intense and hard to manage. This causes many people to turn to pain medications for relief.


Fortunately, there are other options and we have seen many of our patients lessen or completely eliminate their sciatica without using medications.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our Downers Grove, IL Chiropractors specialize in caring for disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system (as it relates to nerves moving out from the spine to affect other parts of the body).

Modern chiropractic care is a form of care that uses tools like spinal adjustments, personalized self-care routines and soft tissue manipulation to help bring the spine back into proper alignment. It also ensures the nerves that move out from the spine are unencumbered.

Chiropractic care, like healthcare in general, has no firm guarantees. That would be impossible to offer. However, we trust the evidence and, based on the  results of thousands of patients we’ve had come through our offices, we can confidently say chiropractic care has changed their lives for the better.

We only use safe, scientifically-based techniques and our doctors work personally with our patients to help them meet their individual health goals. This level of personalized care has been a key to our significant track record of success and greatly increases the likelihood that you will get the results you’re looking for.

Even though most people only associate chiropractic with common complaints like Back Pain, Neck Pain and Headaches, chiropractic care can help with many other challenging spine issues. Some of these include Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD),  Herniated Discs, Spinal Osteoarthritis, Spondylosis, Spinal Stenosis and several others. 

Chiropractic has also been shown to be effective for many other conditions like Chronic Pain and Range of Motion issues, Sciatica, Healing from Sports Injuries, Injuries from Accidents and even Chronic Ear Infections (one of the reasons we see so many kids in our offices).

The entire body is interconnected by a network of nerves flowing from the spinal cord. That’s why keeping those  nerve connections working smoothly  and without obstruction can have a profound effect on the body.

Evolve Chiropractic is an insurance-friendly provider. We work with all the major insurance companies.

On your first visit, we will look over your insurance coverage and let you know exactly what it does (or doesn’t) cover. We also have very reasonable cash rates many of our patients take advantage.

We happily accept Medicare but unfortunately, Medicaid plans do not cover chiropractic care.

Local News and Resources

Mental health programs to start in select suburbs after voters approved property tax hikes  

After voters approved property taxes for new mental health services, publicly sponsored counseling, treatment, and medical care will soon be accessible in certain Chicago suburbs.

Referendums in Schaumburg, Wheeling, and Vernon townships, three DuPage County townships, and across Will County authorized mental health boards on Tuesday. In Winfield Township, voters narrowly rejected the idea.

The bills seek for the establishment of mental health boards to be appointed by county or township supervisors. Typically, the boards would do a needs assessment before establishing a budget and a tax levy. The proceeds would be used to support grants to providers of mental health, developmental disability, and drug misuse services.
