Board-certified chiropractor James Rosenberg, DC, helps many of our patients live in greater comfort by overcoming debilitating pain and discomfort in the muscles, bones and joints. The chiropractic care he provides helps to increase mobility, flexibility, strength, and function, as well as reduce stress and pain.
Dr. Rosenberg, who has nearly 30 years of experience, fully understands the stress that cancer and treatments such as radiation therapy and chemotherapy can impose on the musculoskeletal system. Common ailments he works with patients to address include lower back pain, sciatica, neck problems and headaches.
“Chiropractic care can be beneficial to many patients’ overall health,” says Dr. Rosenberg. “By adjusting and connecting the musculoskeletal dysfunctions, we often reduce stress to the nervous system, which in turn, can help restore the body’s ability to heal. It’s also a way of helping the body to function better.”
Before consulting with his patients, Dr. Rosenberg reviews their medical history and records, including diagnostic imaging tests (e.g., X-rays). He then meets with them to discuss the symptoms they are experiencing, and examines them to pinpoint the source of their pain. In particular, he evaluates each patient’s spine and posture. By applying small adjustments to their spines, Dr. Rosenberg is then able to naturally treat and alleviate pain.
Along with the treatment he provides, Dr. Rosenberg educates his patients about their musculoskeletal health. He also suggests ways that they can make changes in their lifestyle to avoid strain on their muscles, bones and joints.
“The goals of chiropractic care depend on the goals of the patient,” notes Dr. Rosenberg. “Oftentimes we can diagnose and begin to treat the source of the patient’s problem during his or her time at Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Midwestern Regional Medical Center. Once the patient has completed treatment at the hospital and returned home, we can make arrangements for him or her to continue chiropractic care with a local chiropractor.”
Outpatients and caregivers interested in receiving chiropractic care from Dr. Rosenberg do not need a medical referral. Inpatients need a medical referral from their medical oncologist or internist. Some cancer patients may have restrictions on the extent of chiropractic care they can receive, such as patients who have bone metastasis.
Dr. Rosenberg earned a doctorate of chiropractic medicine degree from the National College of Chiropractic (now known as the National University of Health Sciences). He completed bachelor of science degrees in biology and human anatomy at Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey.
Dr. Rosenberg is a Diplomate of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners and a member of the American Chiropractic Association and the Illinois Chiropractic Society.
