How to Get Started

When you are in pain, especially when it is debilitating, it can be overwhelming trying to find a place to get well and get signed up for treatment.  At Joliet Medical Center, we understand that. So we built this Getting Started Guide to help you.

At our office, we represent an integration of a variety of approaches, including medical services, chiropractic care, massage therapy, and rehabilitation and exercise therapy.  To explore the services we offer, click here.  We also set up a page for you to explore some of the common conditions that cause pain and limitations in movement.  To view that page, click here.
