The Cox Technic Part III seminar in Boston is lead by Dr. Cox, developer of the technique, and assisted by Dr. Kruse. Part III is for those Chiropractors new to Cox Technic or recertifying doctors who want to hear the latest in chiropractic and medical research on the proven and evidence-based care of spinal and related pain. Part III highlights the latest in Cox® Technic research, application, treatment refinement, and clinical successes. Dr. Cox will present recent published statistics and share the latest federally funded research, some in which Dr. Kruse participated.
This special weekend also features short case report presentations by certified doctors which lead to some of the most dynamic discussions on back pain causes, approaches to care, and treatment ideas. You will see presentations like never before...doctors' interesting and challenging patient cases and new ways to use Cox Technic principles.

Dr. Ralph Kruse has been certified in Cox Technic Flexion Distraction since 1993 and an instructor for over a decade. This gentle procedure is chiropractic, hands-on spinal manipulation. Years of clinical experience and research documentation fostered by James Cox, make it one of the most respected approaches to relieving and managing spine pain non-surgically.

At Chiropractic Care our goal is to help you achieve and maintain optimal health through natural chiropractic care. We determine the cause of your symptoms and relieve your pain with gentle, effective, drug-free and evidence-based practices. Chiropractic Care maintains a Chiropractic office in downtown Chicago on Michigan Avenue across from Millennium Park. We also have a Chiropractic clinic in Homewood, one of the south suburbs of Chicago.

Dr. Ralph A. Kruse is the owner and clinic director of both offices. Dr. Kruse is a Board Certified Chiropractic Physician, Chiropractic Orthopedist, acupuncturist, and Cox Flexion-Distraction practitioner and instructor who has been in private practice since 1991.

He is a Fellow of the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists, a Member of the American Pregnancy Association and on the editorial board of the Journal of the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists. Dr. Kruse lectures around the country and has authored numerous papers on the treatment of disc herniation, degeneration and stenosis in the neck and back.

He has authored a chapter on back pain in pregnant patients and a study showing how Cox Flexion Distraction helped a pregnant woman with sciatica. His publication in JMPT documented the effective treatment of patients who had already undergone spinal surgery. He is involved in federally funded research studies alongside medical doctors, surgeons and researchers at Loyola Stritch School of Medicine, National University of Health Sciences and Palmer College of Chiropractic.
One premise of chiropractic is that when the flow of nerve impulses to parts of the body is hindered, illness, pain, numbness, weakness and tingling can result. Causes of these 'pinched nerves' include herniated, bulging and degenerated discs as well as spinal misalignment (subluxations) and muscle tightness. Chiropractic manipulation, including Cox Flexion-distraction decompression, helps remove this interference and restores normal nerve flow to the musculoskeletal system. Cox Flexion-distraction can also be modified to treat pregnant patients with back pain and sciatica.

As a Chiropractic Orthopedist, Dr. Kruse frequently treats conditions such as rotator cuff impingement and tendonitis, hip bursitis, knee pain and plantar fasciitis. Both offices provide massage therapy, psychotherapies, Acupuncture, custom foot orthopedics, kinesio tape, muscle activation technique, nutrition, and rehabilitation.

We invite you to schedule an appointment with us to discuss with one of our Chiropractors if you would benefit from our care. We are a preferred provider for most insurance plans and bill your insurance company directly. We accept assignment for Medicare and treat worker's compensation and motor vehicle accident injuries such as whiplash.

We maintain practices in south suburban Homewood (708-798-5556), and 30 North Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago (Chicago’s Loop) directly across from Millennium Park (312-269-5556). The Homewood location offers free on-site parking and we pay for your parking at the Grant Park North garage when you visit our Chicago location.

We invite you to like us on Facebook at Chiropractic Care Millennium Park and Chiropractic Care, Ltd.

Dr. Ralph Kruse is excited to have expanded the Homewood office location with the addition of a Health & Wellness Center. Chiropractic Care will continue providing Chiropractic, massage, and acupuncture services at the existing location, 2417 West 183rd Street in Homewood.

The new Health & Wellness Center at 2421 West 183rd Street is located immediately West of the main Chiropractic office and provides more space for rehabilitation including spinal, shoulder, balance, and posture exercises. The studio allows us the space and flexibility to prescribe and demonstrate physician-guided stretches and exercises to improve long term patient outcomes and prognoses. The Health & Wellness Center allows us the flexibility to offer a variety of health-related classes, lectures, and workshops, especially those concerning back and neck pain.
