At QC Pain & Wellness Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Rock Island office.

Chiropractic Care

We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Paul Nguyen have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment. No one body is the same that is why Dr. Paul has studied several chiropractic techniques to better treat their patients. Some of the following are techniques the doctors have mastered:

  • Active Release Technique (A.R.T)
  • Spinal Decompression
  • Thompson Technique
  • Logan Basic Technique
  • Torque Release Technique
  • Gonstead
  • Activator Technique

Massage Therapy

Massage therapies are defined as the application of various techniques to the muscular structure and soft tissues of the human body. The application of soft-tissue manipulation techniques to the body is generally intended to reduce stress and fatigue while improving circulation. The many variations of massage account for several different techniques. There are various forms of touch therapies that may use manipulation, movement and repatterning that can actually cause structural changes to the body. Massage therapy improves the functioning of the circulatory, lymphatic, muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems and may improve the rate at which the body recovers from injury and illness.


X-Ray Studies

Depending on your specific condition, we may take X-rays as well. X-rays help us develop the most effective treatment plan for you, and alert us of any serious spinal conditions. Most people are amazed once they see their X-rays up close. In some cases, they can even identify their misalignments and degeneration themselves.


Spinal & Postural Screenings

Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.


Lifestyle Advice

We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize each patient as a whole person, and to help him or her reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.


Corrective Exercises

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.


Nutritional Counseling

We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you. Dr. Paul can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs. Dr. Paul is also certified in Nutritional Response Testing (N.R.T) utilizing Standard Process Supplements.
