- Minimizing migraines and neck-related headaches
Improving your overall posture
- Reducing symptoms of chronic illnesses such as osteoarthritis
- Treating various musculoskeletal injuries
Patients who undergo chiropractic treatment often report high levels of satisfaction. Chiropractic care may also be more budget-friendly than other treatments for back pain.

Frequently Asked Questions
What conditions are being treated at Achieve Health and Wellness in Bolingbrook?
Dr. Nathan Fisher treats a variety of health conditions and takes good care of patients of all ages. Some of the most common ailments include back and neck pain as well as headaches, injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Dr. Fisher’s goal is to relieve pain and dysfunction through skillful chiropractic adjustments. He also provides his patients with advice on developing healthy eating habits and exercising. Dr. Fisher is a proponent of a holistic approach, always treating the whole individual.
Are chiropractic manipulations safe?
Yes, chiropractic adjustments are safe. In fact, they are perceived as one of the most effective and safe forms of treatment of neuromusculoskeletal issues that are noninvasive and do not involve drugs. While chiropractic services have stellar safety ratings, as with all health treatments there is some potential for side effects. The risks of adverse reactions are, however, very small. The majority of patients feel relief immediately after an adjustment; others may experience temporary muscle soreness or stiffness, similar to post-workout aches.
It is important to note that manipulations are performed by educated and highly-trained experts. Doctors of chiropractic undergo extensive training to become skilled professionals who can provide safe and effective care to all patients. A typical applicant to a chiropractic college has to complete a 4-year undergraduate college with courses in biology, chemistry, physics, psychology and lab work. After that it’s 4-5 years of rigorous education at an accredited chiropractic college that is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Doctors of chiropractic study orthopedics, neurology, physiology, anatomy, diagnostic imaging, nutrition, exercise and rehabilitation as well as lab procedures. They have over 4,200 hours in classroom, lab and clinical experience.
Do I need a referral to visit a chiropractor in Bolingbrook?
Usually a referral from a PCP is not needed to see a doctor of chiropractic (DC). Nevertheless, it is always a good idea to check with your insurance provider for your specific requirements. Most major plans, such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, include the cost of chiropractic care.
Can children receive chiropractic treatment in Bolingbrook?
Absolutely! Children, as well as adults, can greatly benefit from chiropractic care. Kids who stay physically active and participate in various sports activities, often suffer falls and injuries that can cause back and neck pain, soreness and discomfort. Dr. Nathan Fisher develops a gentle care plan based on an individual child’s needs.
What does chiropractic manipulation look like?
A chiropractic adjustment is performed by Dr. Fisher manually, utilizing his fine skills developed during his comprehensive chiropractic education. A DC uses their hands or a specialty instrument to manipulate the joints of the body, especially the spine, to enhance and restore proper joint function, which also relieves pain and reduces inflammation. A chiropractic adjustment is highly controlled and adapted to meet the needs of an individual patient. Most patients report feeling much better post manipulation.
I heard a popping sound during my adjustment. Is that normal?
Yes! During a manipulation gas bubbles trapped between joints may be released, resulting in the famous “popping” sound. It is very similar to cracking your knuckles. The change in pressure inside the joint causes the release of gas bubbles and thus produces the distinct sound. The popping noise is not associated with discomfort.
How long does chiropractic treatment in Bolingbrook last?
The length of chiropractic treatment is highly individualized based on your personal needs. It should be noted, however, that due to the hands-on nature of the treatment, visiting the chiropractor’s office a number of times is necessary for it to be successful. A doctor of chiropractic can provide acute, chronic or preventative care. During your first visits, Dr. Fisher will develop your plan of care and explain how long your treatment will be expected to last.
