After over two decades of practice as a Doctor of Chiropractic, I can honestly say that I love what I do. I pride myself on my ability to listen and to care for my patients with compassion and integrity. My patients have ranged in age from 2 months old to 90+ years old. I believe each patient is different and should be treated as such. Although the approach may be similar, I feel it is important to be conscious of each patient’s individual needs and concerns. I believe patients should take an active role in their recovery, therefore I provide results-driven home exercises.
I received a Bachelors Degree in Human Biological Sciences in 1995 and graduated from the National College of Chiropractic in 1999 with a Doctorate of Chiropractic. I received a Certification in Strength & Conditioning in 1999 and utilize that knowledge to aid in flexibility and rehab exercise in my practice. I have completed post-graduate work in the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, and towards Certified Chiropractic Sports Medicine Specialist (CCSMS), Certified Chiropractic Insurance Consultant (CCIC), Treatment & Prevention of Postural Injuries, Treatment & Prevention of Golf Related Injuries, Functional Neurology and Functional Rehabilitation.
Drawn to athletics as a child, I feel I understand the mentality of athletes. After a successful high school career, I attended Illinois State University on a wrestling scholarship. As a college athlete, the constant demand on the human body is where my interest in sports medicine began. Since moving my practice to Lemont in 2008, I have developed a close working relationship with the local high school and many youth sports teams. My passion is to keep the players healthy or to get them back on the field of play quickly. Early on in my career, I was fortunate to gain valuable experience on the Medical Staff of a Professional Indoor Football Team as a team Chiropractor.
Currently, I live in Lemont with my wife Rachel and our dogs, Luna and Rosie. We have 3 grown children, Alexia, Madison, Tyler. I love spending time with family, including 2 grandchildren, Noah and Brady. I stay very active in the gym, bike riding and love spending time outdoors hiking, fishing and walking the dogs. I strive to stay active in the community, schools and youth athletics.
I love what I do because I get to help people every day.
Yours in Health,
Dr. Timothy Filippini
