I Matter Member Discounts on Pain Relief/Massages

Posted on : 07-21-2014 | By : tsimons | In : Business Sponsors, I Matter Benefits

The physicians and staff at Integrated Physical Medicine (IPM) believe that no one should have to live with chronic pain which is why IPM  is offering discounts to Silver Cross Hospital I Matter members. Just present your blue or yellow I Matter card at time of service to receive your 5-10% discount.  If you are not an I Matter member, you can sign-up for free.  You will receive your membership card the next time you come to Silver Cross for your annual mammogram or heart screening.  In addition to IPM, you can use your card to receive valuable discounts at over 130 local businesses.

Integrated Physical Medicine (IPM) is a multidisciplinary healthcare facility offering the most skilled and comprehensive chiropractic care and massage therapy in our community.  This organization is the first of its kind in this area and has office locations in both New Lenox and Joliet.

IPM is owned and operated by physicians Dr. Scott J. Kenny and Dr. Jon M. Polcyn.  Doctors Kenny and Polcyn are both local New Lenox residents and both graduated from Providence Catholic High School.  The facility in New Lenox has been servicing the healthcare needs of our community since 2010.  The Joliet location opened its doors in 2013.

The physicians and staff at IPM are excited to introduce a revolutionary approach to non-drug and non-surgical treatment and therapies all found under one roof. “IPM wants our patients and community to know that physical problems demand a physical solution and people do not get healthy sitting on couches!” Dr. Kenny contends.

“The unique 360-degree approach has allowed our physicians and staff to have phenomenal success,” Kenny attests. This thorough approach has assisted in treating headaches and migraines; neck, mid back, and lower back pain; shoulder, elbow, and wrist pain; hip, knee, and ankle pain; sciatica; bulging or herniated discs; plantar fasciitis; sprains/strains; tendonitis; sports injuries; pre and post surgical rehabilitation; strength and conditioning; nutritional counseling and weight loss programs. 

The physicians and staff at IPM want patients to know that they can take control of their healthcare.  “The most important lesson that we try to teach our patients is that pain does not dictate your health,” Dr. Kenny states.  “One’s ability to function or move, exercise, or play with their kids, for example, is the most important indicator of health.” 

“Physical problems like muscle spasm, muscle weakness, and limited range of motion demand physical solutions,” he continues.  “We have had phenomenal success incorporating physical solutions into our patients’ treatment plans.”  These solutions include chiropractic, physical therapy, athletic training, massage therapy, and nutritional counseling.

“In today’s day and age, people have many resources to educate themselves about the options that exist for healthcare,” Kenny states. “People know and understand that chiropractic in conjunction with physical therapy is safe, cost-effective, and covered by most insurance plans. 

“We want people to start to think outside the box,” he asserts. “We challenge ourselves to get our patients better faster and keep our patients better longer.”

For more information or to schedule a thorough consultation with one of the IPM physicians, please call 815-717-8355 (New Lenox) 815-439-2726 (Joliet), visit their Facebook page, and/or visit the IPM website.

Advanced Diagnostics, Special Care

The Silver Cross Center for Women’s Health represents a unique concept in women’s healthcare. Located on the new Silver Cross Hospital campus at I-355 and Route 6 in New Lenox, the Center was the first in the region to provide an advanced level of diagnostics coupled with specialized care for women in one convenient location. Set in a spa-like environment, the Silver Cross Center for Women’s Health offers a variety of healthcare services designed around a woman’s needs and lifestyle including mammography, breast ultrasound including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy, stereotactic biopsy, bone densitometry, and a breast cancer support group.

“At the Center, we use only digital mammography technology to provide our patients with the best service and care,” says Marci Vasiliades, Manager of the Silver Cross Center for Women’s Health. “Patients can bring their old films in and we will scan and transfer them to the digital format for easy comparison.”

Digital mammograms also simplify the procedure for women. Although compression of the breasts is still important when performing digital mammography, the compression paddles are warmer and more flexible, which ultimately provide women with a more comfortable experience.  Following the screening, women can call a 24-hour mammogram hotline to obtain their test results alleviating any anxiety. 

“Our patients really enjoy the service and the amenities,” said Vasiliades.  “They consistently rank us in the top 2% in the nation for patient satisfaction according to Press Ganey.

Silver Cross is designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR).  The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field.

In addition to having this special accreditation, the Center is also unique in that there is a Certified Breast Care Nurse (CBCN™).  This specialized nurse guides patients through the next steps in their care.
