    Suffering From Low Back Pain?

    80% or more of the adult population deals with low back pain. The most common cause is muscle adhesion, from a lifetime of posture and overuse.

    Failing to recognize the condition, physicians commonly prescribe treatments such as physical adjustments, taping, stretching, shots, opioids, and exercise.

    Unless treated, muscle adhesion will lead to a lumbar disc injury, muscle spasms, osteoarthritis, and chronic pain.

    COMMON CAUSES OF BACK PAIN

    • Muscle Adhesion
    • Muscle Spasm
    • Lumbar Disc Degeneration
    • Osteoarthritis
    • Nerve Entrapment

    Suffering From Hip Pain?

    Although it is extremely widespread, adhesion is often misdiagnosed especially in the hip and hip flexor region. 

    Failing to recognize the condition, physicians commonly prescribe treatments such as physical adjustments, taping, stretching, shots, opioids, and exercise.

    Unless treated, muscle adhesion will lead to cartilage damage, labral tears, and osteoarthritis in the hip.

    COMMON CAUSES OF HIP PAIN

    • Muscle Adhesion
    • Labral Tears
    • Osteoarthritis
    • FAI (Femoral Acetabular Impingement)

    Suffering From Sciatica Pain?

    Muscle adhesion in the hamstring and around the sciatic nerve is the most common cause for hamstring or sciatic pain.  It is the byproduct of overuse and builds up over a lifetime of regular use and abuse.

    Failing to recognize the condition, physicians commonly prescribe treatments such as physical adjustments, taping, stretching, shots, opioids, and exercise.

    Unless treated, muscle adhesion will lead to a lumbar disc injury, muscle spasms, nerve damage, and chronic pain.

    COMMON CAUSES OF SCIATIC PAIN

    • Muscle Adhesion
    • Lumbar Disc Degeneration
    • Nerve Entrapment

    Our Effective Process & How We Get Results

    We focus on using Integrative Diagnosis® to help individuals find the underlying causes that create the condition. Dr. Nottoli is an expert at finding and fixing muscle adhesion, which makes muscles weak and less flexible. We will also identify any other issues contributing to your pain.

    Step 1:

     Consultation

    First, we determine if you are a good fit for our office and listen and ask detailed questions about your condition.

    Step 2:

    Exam & Diagnosis

    Establish the exact tissue & pathology responsible for pain. If you are still dealing with pain, then this step was missed. Integrative Diagnosis®️ is a complete system for identifying the exact cause of muscle, joint, and nerve pain.

    We help you understand exactly what’s wrong, how we will help, and expectations on getting you better.

    Step 3:

    Treatment

    Over a series of visits, we will apply the most effective treatment for your condition. 

    With many cases, this is finding and fixing adhesion which is the most common, most under-diagnosed and most treatable condition in the human body. 

    Step 4:

    Resolution

    By improving range of motion and increasing strength, we will allow your body to return to an appropriate level of activity. 

    We have a set of objective data to not only get you out of pain but improve your function.

    Testimonials

    Dr. Paul has helped me so much! Between my somewhat physically demanding job and as an avid CrossFitter, my body was beginning to have aches and pains and my range of motion/overall mobility was going downhill.

    After seeing Paul for only a short time (maybe a month) I have seen HUGE increases in all of my problem areas and lots of things that were causing difficulty in CrossFit (and work) have now decreased or completely gone away.

    I love his methods and honesty in his practice. If you’re having issues and are hard on your body, you definitely will see results with minimal effort/painless treatment plans.

    -Taylor -Aurora Police Officer

    I’ve served as a police officer for 25 years who has had to endure (2) back surgeries including the insertion of an artificial disc at the L5-S1 level. I returned to work in the patrol division having to sit wearing a protective vest weigh about 30lbs for 12 + hours a day.

    The sitting and the extra pressure from the vest caused residual pain shooting down my left leg and tightness thru my mid back area. I had dealt with this pain for almost 5 years before a friend recommended to Dr. Nottoli to me.

    Dr. Nottoli performed a detailed evaluation prior to treatment.  He then was able to pinpoint where my pain was being generated from and in a couple of treatments bring substantial relief from the daily pain. After several more sessions, I’ve achieved sustained relief.

    Dr. Nottoli is masterful at hearing you describe symptoms and being able to get to the core of the problem.  I’ve been for chiropractic care at various locations prior to him and his technique is not the manual pop and cracks that you think of typically. Dr. Nottoli is able to release muscle adhesions which in turn creates the sustained relief from pain.

    Thanks, Dr. Paul for keeping me in the fight!!!!

    Robert – Police Officer – Downers Grove

    Dr. Paul is the real deal. Seeing Paul is not like attending your average chiropractic session (massage and adjustment). He isolates your issues and focuses his treatments on correcting those.

    Paul has not only helped me with a few soft tissue flare-ups but has helped me improve my overall mobility, particularly shoulder mobility.

    Paul’s also an active athlete, so he gets the challenges an athlete faces. If you’re looking for someone who can provide both helpful and practical short and long term help, he’s your man!
