CHICAGO, Oct. 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Universal Health Source in Chicago is using social media outlets including Facebook, Twitter and Google+ to communicate with patients and provide updates on events within and around the office. Chicago chiropractor, Dr. KayLynne Koubsky, who focuses on holistic healing and corrective care for patients, believes that it is important to balance a healthy mind and a healthy body. As part of helping patients achieve this goal, the doctor plans to use social media outlets as a way of keeping in touch and providing a constant stream of information and education. The doctor also hopes to provide a forum where patients can have their questions answered or communicate with each other about conditions they are experiencing.
The Chicago chiropractor has been using Twitter to provide an almost daily stream of informational tidbits and motivational insights. Recent posts have given motivation to patients about happiness, asked whether they would rather receive a chiropractic adjustment to deal with headaches and back problems or take a pill which just masks pain, and advised fashionistas that only a 2½" heel can increase the load on their forefoot by 75%. These posts are repeated on the Facebook page along with helpful pictures, inspirational slogans, links to informative articles and videos, and updates on events at the clinic and in the Chicago area.
"Many of our patients are dealing with ongoing stress headaches and chronic back problems, or are in need of corrective care for injuries they may have suffered as the result of an auto accident," said Dr. Koubsky. "While they are in the office I can provide hands-on care to help realign their spinal column or alleviate the immediate pain they are experiencing. But I also take a holistic approach to helping patients feel better every day, not just when they are in my office. Social media has really allowed me to reach out and share information that I am simply not able to provide effectively on a one-to-one basis."
Dr. Koubsky has a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from Cleveland Chiropractic College. Universal Health Source provides a variety of services including chiropractic care to relieve pain from back problems and headaches, corrective care and physical therapy to help patients recover from auto accident injuries or sports-related injuries, nutritional guidance, and wellness care to help improve overall patient health in an effort to reduce the risk of illness or pain in the first place.
Universal Health Source is located at 333 E. Benton Place, Suite 104 in Chicago and serves patients in the areas of Millennium Park, Streeterville, Lakeshore East, and The Loop.
