Two and half years ago, she and her husband traveled to Maryland for a fellowship with a highly regarded sports chiropractor treating professional, collegiate, and high school athletes. Dr. Crystal is now the sole chiropractor and owner of Restorative Health Center in Grayslake, IL. She and her husband, Geoff, a Grayslake native, could not be more thrilled to be back home, in Lake County, settling down with their six-month-old daughter.

These techniques include Spinal Curve Restoration, Cox Flexion-Distraction, Dry Needling, Functional Rehabilitation, Soft Tissue Manipulation, E-stim, and Taping.

Dr. Crystal enjoys treating patients from all spectrums of life and occupations from physical laborers and athletes to desk workers. Dr. Crystal speaks on topics including repetitive sports injuries, injury prevention, core strengthening, partner stretching, and proper posture. "My philosophy in treating patients is caring for the whole person. I investigate to find the root cause of the symptoms, work on correcting the dysfunction to resolve the problem, and teach the patient how to prevent injuries in the future giving them the tool to remain pain and injury free. I am extremely passionate about helping people reach a pain-free state, get back to their sport or work in better shape than pre-injury state as quickly as possible."

Dr. Crystal is excited to be serving Grayslake, and is committed to helping all of her patients live a painfree lifestyle.  Her guiding treatment philosophy is that each patient and condition is unique, and deserves to be addressed with specificity treating the problem not the symptom.  Dr. Crystal will meet with you to explain in detail how she can help relieve any discomfort you are experiencing.  She is always updating and furthering her education to provide the best and most knowledgeable service.

Testimonials

Dr. Nick is great!!! I always thought Chiropractors were quacks, I was GREATLY mistaken!! I have had some neck issues and back issues over the years and my regular doctor has only prescribed me muscle relaxors, which only masked the pain. I don't like taking them, because I don't like taking drugs and the sluggish effects they bring you. I have taken these muscles relaxors and still have the same problems, nothing had been resolved! I am a very active person and I don't choose to be taking all this medication and having the horrible side effects and left with the same problem. Going to Dr. Nick has been amazing! He has really helped me and helped with the pain and has effectively solved my issues and has brought back the moblity to my neck and back! I am back to all the activities I have not been able to do prior! He is very easy to talk to and is a great listener and he has given me great exercises to do along with the treatment. My pain has ceased and I feel great!! I strongly reccommend Dr. Nick and will continue to refer him to everyone I can!----J.P.
