Welcome to Body Works Health & Wellness
Holistic Chiropractic Care for the whole family in Chicago’s West Loop Neighborhood
From our state-of-the-art facility in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood, our primary chiropractor, Dr. Yousef Zaffarkhan, empowers his patients to script their own health and wellness journey. With certifications in Diversified, Thompson and Gonstead spinal chiropractic techniques and years of experience incorporating complementary wellness services, Dr. Zaffarkhan utilizes an innovative approach to help his patients proactively participate in their recovery plan after an injury while also reducing chronic pain.
Chicago Chiropractic Care, Techniques and Treatment Plans
At the foundation of chiropractic medicine is a holistic approach that includes incorporating a broad range of modalities that help restore the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Just as each person has unique physical characteristics, every health condition has distinct symptoms and requires an individualized protocol. Dr. Zaffarkhan may recommend nutritional counseling, orthotics, massage therapy, or a combination as part of a complete wellness plan for some patients while prescribing acupuncture and Flexion Distraction techniques for others. Also worth noting is that every massage technique is not appropriate for every condition. For instance, Active Release Techniques (ART), which treat tightness and tension in muscles, tendons, nerves, fascia and ligaments, can be combined with spinal manipulation to ensure muscles and connective tissue function properly. While this approach supports overall spine health, other massage treatments may be prescribed primarily to encourage relaxation and stress relief.
Different health goals demand different diagnostic and evaluation exams, too. Our doctor uses state-of-the-art technology to assist with accurate diagnosing and treatment program design. Our goal is to eliminate the source of pain rather than manage pain from an outward-in perspective. Using CBP (Clinical Biomechanics of Posture), Dr. Zaffarkhan is able to identify spine alignment deviations, and recommend specific corrective actions to restore normal, healthy function.
Long-term spinal changes are possible through a combination of spinal manipulations, corrective exercises and traction. Determining which techniques and services are most beneficial is the first step in creating a plan toward good health, wellness and vitality. There is no singular path that works for everyone.
Two patients with the same, or similar symptoms, may experience better outcomes from different techniques. AO (Atlas Orthogonal Technique,) which adjusts the cervical spine, may be the preferred treatment for a certain condition. Alternatively, our Chicago chiropractor may decide that SOT (Scaral Occipital Techniques), which focuses on aligning the hips to support the internal organs and back health by balancing the pelvis, is a better option.

I received a 55-minute massage here yesterday (with a Groupon), and it was amazing!!! I'm unsure of the therapists name whom I received one from, but the experience is unforgettable! I can tell they are adept at the art of healing, as every move made worked out the exact spot I have been holding pain, knots, and/or kinks in my body. It was a blend of Thai massage with other techniques, and literally the best massage I've ever had. Well rounded, also the building is peaceful and clean. Thank you very much :)
I’ve been coming here for chiropractic adjustments for a few years. I consistently have a great experience-Dr Z is efficient, friendly, listens to the back/neck/joint issues I’m having and addresses them. The non-insurance monthly plans are helpful for me to be consistent with getting adjustments done, too. Covid precautions in the office have been reassuring too.
Courtney was great - very knowledgeable and friendly, and gave a relaxing, restorative, and personalized massage. I would definitely return for another massage.
Had a massage with Wayne through a Groupon my husband bought me for my birthday. Making an appointment was easy, everyone nice and courteous, and the massage was great.
