About LaGrange Institute of Health

As health care professionals, the La Grange Institute of Health provides an environment that facilitates and encourages healing. We dedicate ourselves to diagnosing and educating the patient followed by providing guidance through the healing process. It is our goal to get the patient back into their activities, including work life, home life, sports and recreation as soon as possible. 

Addressing acute and chronic conditions, we aim to return the patient to their prior healthy status. It is imperative that the patient take responsibility for their health and care for themselves in terms of following the treatment protocol. We will give every effort possible to the patient in our hands and we ask the same of our patients.

Prevention

Maintaining your health is the best way to avoid illness and injury. This involves a nutritional diet, consistent fitness plan and quality sleep. Today’s society puts stress on each of these categories. The high pace of life, careers, family and activities combined with poor quality meals and increased stress levels takes a constant toll on our bodies and our health. Often by the time a patient seeks care, they are in a state of ill health or injury. It is our goal, here at the La Grange Institute of Health, to not only nurture the patient while injured or ill, but to educate the patient on how to maintain their health, return the patient to their active life and avoid future problems or relapse.

At La Grange Institute of Health, we understand that pain, injury and illness affect more than just the body. Using the modern approach of the bio-pyscho-social model, we take the entire patient into consideration while making a diagnosis. A patient’s environment and mindset affect recovery as much as the healing of the musculoskeletal and nervous system. Alleviating pain is just one treatment goal we wish to accomplish. Restoring proper function and returning the patient to their active life is our ultimate goal. It is important to acknowledge that healing is only the first step to health, a commitment to prevention will speed healing time and save money.

    Health Tips

    The desire to change one's body is fairly equal between men and women.  Whether the desire is to lose weight, gain muscle, increase strength or just make it up the flight of stairs without huffing and puffing- people wish for change.

    It is good to know that change IS possible for anyone, but it does require the right foods and frequent exercise.  Exercise and nutrition always go hand-in-hand and research continues to show that neither does well alone.  Make some simple changes in your life to get started today!

    5 Nutritional Changes:  

    • Eat at least 1 cup of steamed veggies every day
    • Eat at least 12-15 grams of protein with breakfast (hint: eggs, chicken sausage, protein smoothies...)
    • Drink more water
    • Have green tea instead of that third cup of coffee
    • Omit ALL artificial sweeteners, colorings, preservatives and flavorings. (hint: choose stevia, honey or agave syrup to sweeten)

    5 Fitness Changes:

    • Plan and schedule your workouts at the start of each week.
    • Get good gear!  The right shoes, comfy but supportive workout clothes mean a lot and don't have to be expensive.
    • Find exercise you enjoy.  Many gyms and classes offer a trial for you before you invest.
    • Go for a walk after dinner.  
    • Remember that the body is built for motion and not the couch!
